The trailer is fixed! Ends up, a ground wire that went to the solenoid for the surge brakes had broken somewhere. It's working fine now. Need to go try for some more bluegill to test it out tomorrow! Thanks for the replies.

|muskyed||Sometimes on new trucks you need to bend the pins slightly where your trailer plug goes in, On my last new boat last year, I also purchased a new truck at the same time. Connection was hit and miss, really sucked trying to back in my garage the first few times, when brakes wouldn't release. Called the boat dealer to say I wanted a new plug harness put on. He said they were seeing it a bit on new trucks, and suggested bending the pins about a 1/16"-1/8" in the outlet on the truck. Plug was loose before I did this, and after slightly bending them, boat plug has went in tight, and never lost connection once.|

|RMBin303||I would guess that the problem is in the pig tail on the trailer that plugs into the boat. At least that is what I had to replace on mine to keep that from happening on my RAM.|

Silverado Trailer Monitor
The first time I hooked my boat trailer to my new truck I discovered the trailer monitoring screen. I decided I liked it because it would check the lights for me, kept track of the miles and other items that are probably going to be useful, but I have not figured out yet.
Yesterday, I hooked up the boat to go fishing and all was good. On the way home, it said I no longer had a trailer hooked up. I checked, it was still there!!!! I tried unplugging and plugging back in and it still did not recognize the trailer.
All the lights are still working fine. Any ideas? Trailer or truck? Going in for the first service tomorrow so will ask the dealer but seems strange.
Two man limit of bluegill and crappie by the way.
