sorta. My perspective is a complete system..
- The converter charges batteries.
- Batteries provide power to the Breakaway switch, and, if working properly, battery power (12 volts direct current (VDC)) is available to operate the trailer brakes if the unthinkable should occur.
- the 'Breakaway' switch should be checked REGULARLY that it will engage the trailer brakes properly..
More info needed on the trailer power levels to proceed.
