    Are you able to disconnect the charge wire at the box, or is it all sealed connections?

    I could disconnect it. I could also wire it properly with a new trailer pigtail. For now, since it’s a new trailer still under warranty, I’m going to make the dealership wire it properly and see how that goes.

    That's probably the smartest, should something else happen they can't fight you tooth and nail since they repaired it.

    It's extremely odd it was wired to charge off the brake application circuit instead of the actual charging circuit though. My guess is that it was slightly overloading the trailer control module causing the issue.
