Caravan and Trailer onboard Battery Kit

It is essential to note that an independent, designated, or separate breakaway battery system is not required.

In other words, the caravan or camper onboard 12v battery is the breakaway battery provided it can apply 12vdc to your electric brakes.

Further, the onboard caravan battery will be larger than the minimum requirement and have the same or larger capacity than the smaller unit.

The breakaway switch activates the trailer brake system for 15 minutes in cases where the trailer was detached from the vehicle when travelling.

Breakaway Replacement Parts


Disconnect the trailer plug when testing the breakaway kit. Failure to do so may severely damage the vehicle’s Electric brake controller.

5A – 12V Replacement Battery to suit Breakaway Kit.

5A means five amps or 5 x 12 = 60 watts for one hour

The battery should be large enough to power four magnets @ 3.2Amp each for 15 minute

How do I tell when the battery requires replacement?

Your breakaway battery will require replacement when you cannot get a green light on your control panel.

Replacement Breakaway Switch Kit option Waterproof Rubber Boot Cover

A breakaway switch does not prevent water ingress into your breakaway switch.

Water and dirt enter the switching mechanism, making it inoperable. As a result, replace the switch.

A boot cover greatly assists in the prevention of water into the breakaway switch.

Shorten the breakaway switch lanyard for effective braking when your caravan is on its safety chains.

Finally, all trailers over 2000kg require a breakaway system.
