To add, when the white-knuckle incident happened, big rigs were passing us and blowing the trailer/truck all over the shoulder, then the rear tire pressure sensors started triggering. Pulled over, checked tires, hitch, etc...nothing. Tires were'nt even too hot to the touch.

Again, thanks for the replies. We've even entertained trading up to a 2500, but big expense if I simply don;t have the truck set up correctly.
I think you found the issue. When my parent's bought their old 33' trailer, the dealer set up the hitch. It was horribly out of whack and not even level. You need to fix your hitch set up and that should fix your problem.
