Default Trailer Disconnect Alarm in Reverse

2012 Ram 3500 Laramie - towing 5th wheel with factory trailer braker controller etc. has been working very well for 8 months. The trailer disconnect alarm and chime comes on when trailer power is disconnected (found this out while towing the rig on the highway. Ram brakes are mighty fine but it was like stopping a train).. So now I am getting the alarm when the truck is put into reverse (no 5th attached). The controller shows 59% application.. Its more annoying than anything else. Anyone else had the problem or suggestions on how to fix.

Any changes made to the trailer wiring harness? Sounds like there may be a short between the backup lights and trailer brake wires.
