I guess you know the answer to that. NOTHING changed in your TT wiring, and since it worked before, it should continue to work. You had a gremlin I suspect. Put it back like it was before and I'm quite sure it will work again.
As long as the wire is a straight shot from the tailgater to the receiver, it is the same as the direct wire he recommended. They're just used to people's RVs that have only a "Cable" in and that usually won't work.
I guess a fitting could have come loose, or that tiny piece of wire that was almost shorting out the connector finally managed to do that. If it doesn't work still, those are the things you should check.
