Test your trailer brakes and adjust them if needed. I first adjusted the brake controller and didn't see much improvement. Then I adjusted the brakes and found that there was plenty of room for improvement. I would suggest that you add that to the list of items. May be it should be #1 on the list due to safety.

Check propane tanks for fullness. ( I shake the tank and feel for the liquid level).
