For any and all types of trailers with electric trailer brakes, a CURT breakaway kit provides you with the equipment you need to be prepared. We offers three different complete breakaway systems to accommodate various trailer sizes and meet your specific towing needs. All of our breakaway kits are tested for your safety and meet DOT requirements for holding and breakaway situations. The CURT Soft-Trace 1 breakaway system comes with a 12-volt, 5-amp battery and a nylon breakaway switch for reliable activation. The battery is designed to be rechargeable for long-term use, and the breakaway switch comes with a 48″ lanyard to fit most vehicle-trailer combinations. This particular kit also includes a 12-volt battery charger. To keep the battery well-protected from the elements and tampering, this Soft-Trace 1 breakaway kit also comes with a lockable top-load battery case. The case is made from durable plastic to be rust-free and features a screw-tight lid with rubber gaskets to maintain good wiring connections. Nobody hitches up a trailer expecting a breakaway, but that doesn’t mean you should tow unprepared. Be ready for anything with a CURT breakaway kit.

Good kit, but a few problems The kit itself is fine, and works well. I would have given it a 5 except for the following issues:1. The battery was dead, as in too dead to test the brakes. When I tested it, it was around 11.5 volts, and dropped to less than 10 when the brakes were actuated.2. The o-ring in the battery box was not installed correctly, and was pinched in two places. I was able to remove and reinstall it, and it looks OK. There was also a screw missing from the box cover. If I had installed it…
