New 5th wheel, odd noise

Just got back from the first trip in my 2014 Palomino Puma Unleashed FQU Toy hauler, about a 225 mile round trip. As I held the farm gate open and my DH drove the rig through, I noticed a weird screeching metallic noise from the rear of of the chasis as he drove it past me, on smooth road. I called the dealer, and they'll put it in line to look at it, but before they tell me NTF, any one else experience this or heard of such?

New Rig in Texas..
Tow vehicle 1999 Dodge 1 ton dually, Cummins diesel.

Maybe a brake hung up? There was a case where someones brakes came apart and was floating around in the drum.

Could be a bad bearing also.

If you can, jack up the side where you heard the noise and spin the tires. If it's bearing or brakes it should be very noticeable.
