Even if a breakaway kit is not required by your state, it’s a good idea to install one on your trailer. They’re standard on Mirage Trailers.
The choice, in the event of a separation of your trailer from your tow vehicle, is either a trailer coming to a relatively controlled stop thanks to the kit or a trailer careening down the road stopping whenever it crashes into something.
Choose a Spot
You are free to decide the spot for your breakaway kit. You can even place it inside your trailer. However, most people generally place the box in a location that is easily accessible, such as the tongue. Keep in mind that you want to mount it where it will be protected from road debris.
Wire it Up
Wiring up a breakaway kit involves cutting and splicing wires. If you’re not comfortable with your skills, consider hiring a professional to do it. First, connect the wires from your battery to the kit. Next, connect the wires from the switch to your trailer brakes. Last, connect the switch to the hitch.
