The problem is definitely in the trailer. You're controller didn't just decide to fail between the time you dropped off and picked up the trailer. Hopefully though the problem didn't now damage your Prodigy.

What I would do, but then I always do things a bit differently than most. Disconnect one wheel at a time and carefully do a test pull to see if the problem goes away. If the problem does go away then take it back and tell them which wheel seems to be causing a problem.

Had a similar problem with my last T.T. Had it in the shop for 4 new backing plates and bearing repack. Got it back and everything seamed alright until going to Florida from Wisconsin I lost breaking on 1 side coming down Mt. Eagle. Scary, it would pull to one side. Lucky I had a dually to keep it straight. Found out that when the shop put the new backing plates on a magnet wire got pinched between the plate and the axle flange. Didn't show up until hard braking. Look for anything like this. Also get rid of the scotch locks. Do it right with the proper connections. Good Luck and Happy Camping.
