That brake controller may be part of the problem. That is a time actuated brake controller. You set the delay and intensity. If the intensity is set too high, after the set delay is reached you may be applying too much electricity to the brakes.
A proportional brake controller would be a better choice.
The other part of the equation is the year of the trailer. With an 8 year old trailer, a thorough inspection of the brakes are due, including wiring, shoe pad remaining, magnets, along with grease seal inspection/replacement.
