Traveling with a trailer, camper, toy hauler, and other towables can be great fun and offer a lot of freedom. However, towing and hauling can be a dangerous game if you are not set up for safety - not just for you but for other drivers as well! Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to improve the safety of your towing setup, such as with the RecPro 12v Breakaway Switch!

What is a breakaway switch? A breakaway switch is a simple device that can have a significant impact on the road safety of your towing setup, especially in an emergency. It is a device designed to do one thing: a breakaway switch activates the electric brakes of your trailer or towable should it become detached from the tow vehicle.

The breakaway switch is easy to install onto your towing vehicle and towable, taking only a few minutes time. Installation tools and hardware are not included with the RecPro 12v Breakaway Switch.
