In the unlikely event your trailer becomes separated from your truck while you are driving down the road, a breakaway system will engage the trailer brakes and stop your trailer. It operates off a battery and that battery needs to be checked regularly. A “runaway” trailer can be deadly and has no predictable path to those following or meeting it. A simple working breakaway system is vital to a trailer and everyone’s safety.
We make sure the breakaway brakes properly engage and inspect the following: pin/cable, battery, c-clip, and switch assembly.
