Has any one tried using a battery from a impact tool or drill for the trailer brake away brakes  ?

 

 

Yes...I use a gel cell motorcycle battery.........works great, affordable, and I carry a spare new one in the trailer also. They tend to check them often now if your pulled over or stopped on the side of the road. I work on the theory of having a safety kit behind my front seat........jack, flares, triangle, lug wrench, safety vest, flashing strobes, ect..........cops usually see that you're trying and they leave you alone.

My thinking was   I go sometimes long times between times I use that trailer  and when I do  I always  have battery powered tools with me and extra battery's for them .

I hooked up the 18 volt battery from a Dewalt drill to my 2 axle car trailer and it will skid the tires when empty  I will have to test how much braking it has when loaded but so far it looks good.

I had 2 DeWalt drills 14.5 and 18 volt  and there battery's look the same but won't enter change  I took a old drill apart and removed the part that plugs in to the battery and  solder a lead to each  wrapped it with electrical tape this will plug in to both  battery's  .
