Yes, I have a breakaway switch and an anti-sway bar installed. Last week was our first long trip and the brakes worked very well, except that they squealed quite a bit. I am trying to make an appointment soon to have them checked. Our trip was in the lower Adirondacks NY, and my van handled the hills very well. We got about 14.5L/100Km. Without the trailer I average about 9.5L/100Km.

The mileage sounds right based on what I get between towing or not.
The squeal may just be because the trailer brakes have not been serviced in some time or the trailer has sat for a long period and collected rust.

The squeel is the rust being ground off.
