Was the tow vehicle hooked up when you checked the wheels for freedom of movement?
If not I would hook it up and check the wheels again with the trailer connected. There could be voltage being applied to the brakes on that side. I would also pull the wheels and hubs and check for any obvious mechanical issues.

We would love to know what the problem was.

It may help someone in the future to know what to look for.
