Intermittent Braking Issue

I have a 99 F-250 SD w/Triton V10 pulling a 32' Wildcat Sterling 5er. On the way home from a recent trip I felt the trailer brakes gabbing intermittently without the brakes being applied. The brake controller is a Reese Brakeman Compact. I noticed the indicator light would light dimly and then get brighter and go off again without me stepping on the truck brakes. I was wondering where to start troubleshooting to find the problem.

Is it possible that somehow the sync control got bumped( changed) to make braking more sensitive?

I have it set to be aggressive when braking on the highway and less aggressive in the city, but was not moved while travelling and is where I set it when I left that morning.
It would just start braking on its own. First it would be barely noticeable, then actually slow the rig down for a couple of seconds. Then it would let up for several minutes before doing it again.
