RE: Trailer Brakes Disconnected message

Thanks for all the replies. At this point I don't think its the truck but trying to figure out what it is on the trailer. May even try another similar truck and see if the same issue appears just to be sure. The connections all look good with no corrosion. First time i've experienced this issue before.

Trailer Brakes Disconnected message

I have a 2017 Ram 2500 with the integrated brake controller and a 2016 Sandpiper 5th wheel. I have owned both for 3 years now. For some reason, ever since I pulled the camper from storage the truck no longer sees it when I plug the 7 way cord in. All lights and functions work on the camper. Output has been tested and works at the plug. I bought a tester from Amazon to measure the brake force being pushed and see no problem there. I took the camper down to my local RV shop where they hooked a brake simulator up to the camper and asked me to pull forward/backward few feet and they crossed a wire (I think, I was driving) and it initiated the brakes on the trailer and it stopped fine without me tapping the brakes. They say the trailer brake system is fine. They blame the truck, yet I can't explain why it does not see the camper. They checked all fuses - all good. To make it worse, when I pull out and head down the road the truck begins to see it 'connected'. I can manually engage the brakes with the controller slide and adjust as needed or just tap the brakes and feel it engage. When I stop or slow - same message Trailer Disconnected message. I'm out of ideas on how to proceed.
