Cool Rear windows stop working when trailer plugged in

Extremely strange problem (at least to me). This has happened with two different trailers that have been plugged into the factory wired flat 4 trailer plug on my 2013 RAM 1500 Sport. All truck and trailer lights work properly, but the rear passenger windows and sliding back window cease functioning. They will not go up or down. They start working again at some point after unplugging the trailer.
First reaction is something is wrong with the trailer wiring, but this has happened with two different trailers that don't cause problems with other vehicles and all light functions work normally on both truck and trailer.
Naturally, the dealer checked the plug wiring and concluded there is nothing wrong ... there must be something wrong with the trailer wiring. If there was something wrong with the trailer wiring, lights would not function properly.

Anyone have any ideas or know how to get hands on a service manual that would enable me to trouble shoot the truck wiring?

Hi, Steven, and thanks for joining the RamforumZ. I encourage you to stop by the Newbie Checkin section and introduce yourself so other members and give you a proper how-do-ya-do.

The trailer harness is effecting the relay for the back windows, somehow. The trick, now, is to find out why?
