If you Google this problem there are a lot of forum posts about it. I am having the same issue with my 1500 and a Keystone trailer. I had it at my dealer and they checked out the trailer top to bottom.
I have not tried the suggestion of disconnecting the truck battery. I am going to do that this weekend. Good luck. This is not an easy fix. Rest assured that it is because the brake module is doing its job. Now if Chevy would just offer a volume control to quiet down the dinging!

I have had the same problem with my 3500HD with my XLR. I just waited 5-10 minutes and the problem cleared. Planning on taking it to the dealer in the near future but expectations are low

I would also suggest checking your trailer wiring more thoroughly. I had an issue with my car hauler that I would hookup the trailer and I sometimes I could drive it for an hour other times barely get out of the yard and yet others get the fault as soon as I started the truck. At first I thought it was the truck so I hooked up the RV and gave it a pull and no fault, then I thought ok maybe it is the plug as the wires had pulled out of the stress relief and still no luck. The last thing I did was go under the trailer and I found a rock or something had cut one of the wire bundles going to one side of the trailer, in my case it was an intermittent open that caused my fault but you could very well be seeing a short appear. Of course I was not so lucky as to have it happen in the summer, it happened at -30 and I use that trailer to haul water for our acerage so it needed to get fixed.

Just some food for thought and I sure hope you get it worked out.

Interesting to see it's affecting all Chevy/GMC classes from 1500 to 3500. Sounds like a "pattern failure." Has anyone asked their tech if they've searched this out on Identifix? I can't post a link with my not-so-smart phone but you can Google it. Also, have you tried towing with the stabilty control turned off? Just another thought.

I have a 2500 Silverado, 2010. The check trailer break service warning came on. I took it to my dealer & 1 1/2 hours later it came out ok & they found a wire was cut. The next the same warning came on took it in & 5 1/2 hours they found another cut wire. Went a 100 miles to see my brother for a week & while there guess what. The same warning came up again, I could have gone to a GM dealer at my brothers place, but they would have had to start from the beginning & recheck, so while the wife visited I went back home where they could find nothing because the warning went off. They checked & replaced the RELAY switch, which is under the spare tire! Everything is working, knock on wood. We traveled from Ottawa, Ontario to New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island to Goshen & no more warnings. I am not sure if this helps you or not. Remember cut wires & a relay switch, were the main things in this story. Good luck.

I have a Silverado 2012 3500 SRW diesel that I ordered from the factory. I ordered a Wildcat Sterling (polecat) that special ordered in 2012. I had a ton of problems with the polecat and one problem was the camper kept blowing the running lights fuse in the truck. The dealer told me to put a bigger amp fuse in the truck. GM told me that if I put a larger amp fuse in the truck and something happens to truck GM would void the warranty. Long story short, I traded campers and two campers later and 25,000 miles or more and never has another fuse blew. The Wildcat was the prettiest camper that I have ever owned

GM didn't go out of business because they made a fantastic product and offered superb customer service.

I learned my lesson the hard way, too.

A lot depends if it is a serious safety hazard for the lemon law to kick in. In our case it was the 5th try and then it was up for replacement . It was just a fuel gauge not showing proper amount of fuel. Finally got it fixed before we where to get a new truck. Later RJD

I was out camping last weekend with my family and our friends came out as well, he was pulling their trailer with a Chevy 2500 as well and his abs, tc and trailer brake warning lights came on. He was able to turn his truck off and it would reset the codes. He had to keep stopping on route to the CG to reset, eventually the codes stopped resetting. The next day we drove into the nearest town and went to the dealership which was nice enough to tell us what the code was, which happened to be the left rear abs sensor. So off to the store we went to buy some supplies and a multimeter. After we got back to the campground we ended up finding a bad wire going into one of the plugs, fixed the wires up and turned on the truck to find no more codes.

Curious: which plugs did you find "a bad wire going into one of the plugs, fixed the wires up and turned on the truck to find no more codes" in?

Glad you got your buddies truck fixed. Thanks for sharing.
