Wiring a Trailer Breakaway Switch to an American Car Dolly

Hi folks, I picked up an American Car Dolly with their electronic break controller that plugs into my 4 pin recently and want to add a breakaway system to it. I searched but couldnít find a specific thread that detailed the wiring for it. Can anyone share how they did their install?

Should call American Car Dolly and inquire
970-380-3305

4 pin only has right, left turn signals, marker lights and ground
*the controller gets DC power from one of the light circuits according to website

Brake away Switch/wiring ties into Brake controller brake output with power from a battery (pin pulled battery supplies DC to brakes)

Brake Away Kits can be with their own battery

Should be able to install on dolly and wire it into the American Brake Controller Output wire

Thanks for the reply, if I understand correctly I ground the white wire, connect the black wire from the battery to the black wire on the pin pull and splice in the blue wire to the dolly blue wire (output). Does that sound about right? I’m pretty new to this and appreciate the response. I’ve got an inquiry with Gary from ACD, but also wanted to tap into this forum.
