Just other thoughts, the P3 is self leveling but I think that is only in one axis, up-down, not side to side. Is your controller pretty level side to side?

Yes tundra came with factory tow package and yes the controller is sitting level. I got the controller from etrailer and seen the video where they put it right above the gas pedal and that is where I put it.

I did unplug it last night to check harness so it was powered down not sure but maybe it will reset itself the next time I hook it up to the trailer.

My p3 acted up when I tried towing with a almost dead rv battery...

Sorry, just remembered that I actually had a corroded connection in the TV plug itself. The bottom wire was rotted off, of course nothing soldered as it should have been in the first place!

Wyo.. Here is a link that tells you how to troubleshoot the P3. I guess it has a diagnosis/troubleshooting mode. Hope this helps.

Ok so I hooked the truck up and could not get it to do it again. I did not tow it just hooked up parked. But before I am almost positive it overloaded before when I was parked. I had my DW hold brake controller lever and I went around and could here all brake buzzing and they all sounded the same. I did spray trailer plug and truck plug with Electra motive to clean everything out. So I don't know if a combo of everything me taking the power off the controller yesterday and the cleaning today but it won't do it now. I had the controller set to 5.0 and I tried with boost off and on boost 1. I took a pic of all the readings through the diagnostics. So maybe someone can tell me if something looks wrong but everything looks alright.

The main difference from being parked and underway is centrifugal force. The P3 is a proportional brake controller and it has an inertia sensor inside. That is how it knows how hard to apply the brakes when you make a quick stop. When you calibrate you go down the road at 25 mph and use the manual control only just to set the max braking level to your brakes so when you get into an emergency braking situation your brakes work to the max but don't lock up.

I hade a P2 that was not self leveling and when I went to our place in North Carolina I had trouble with the brakes locking up on steep downgrades due to the inertia sensor losing calibration.

I seems that you are getting braking control to all your brakes so I guess you will have to take it back for another spin since you have cleaned up your connector.

Ya I guess so hopefully I will see something cause all seems fine right now. But thanks so much for that last piece if info from etrailer. I will be resorting back to that if I have anymore problems.

I crawled under my camper last night and found two wires that go to the drivers front brake that were pinched to the point it had split the wire coating open. There was no corrosion and wires were not broke and looked fine so I straightened wires and wrapped with tape really good. In that etrailer troubleshoot you showed me it said a pinched wire can possibly cause this so we will see what happens when I get to take it for a spin. Thanks again for your help.
