Trailer connection problems

On my way home last trip a my DIC kept telling me teller connected..... Trailer disconnected..... Trailer connected...... Over and over....... Every few seconds......I got a 7 way tester that test the connections..... The BK keeps flashing...... As if looking for the brakes. ....I would think it should fool the truck but it does not.

It never goes solid when if I use the foot breaker or the controller...... All other functions are good. This problem started all of a sudden.... Is the BK actually a hot wire or ground.

This is a built in controller from factory, 2011 Chevy 2500 hd diesel. Pulling 2013 Coachman 39 foot.

Sorry for being a little thick... but what are you calling a BK?

I wish everyone would stop using initials and spell stuff out. You want to know what BK is,,,, I want to know what DIC is. We are not mind readers. Sorry but this happens ALOT!

So the sentence "The BK keeps flashing" should be read as "The black keeps flashing"?

If so. What the hell is this Black thing that is flashing?? As for the Abv's it's a millennium thing caused by cell phone texting. The ability to spell is being lost.

I don't know what he's talking about either.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

My experience with trailer lights brakes and such has shown that these problems are usually a problem with a ground somewhere on camper or truck.

I think he means that a warning keeps flashing that the BLACK wire in the trailer connector is disconnected. Either that, or the wire to the trailer BraKes (BK?) .

Had this happen on my 15 2500 silverado. Did you have the inverter on. I noticed mine came on more frequently when i had the inverter on. Im guessing its a battery drain issue cause it always happened after about 2hrs of driving.
