Default trailer brake controler does not work

Hi everyone. Here's my problem. My new 2011 Ram 2500 SLT 4X4 has a factory built in trailer brake controler. When I hook everything up and the truck is at a complete stop it works. As soon as the truck starts to roll the display reads trailer brake disconnected. As soon as the truck stops the trailer brake reconnects. This trailer worked fine on my other dodge with an after market controler. The trailer aslo works fine on my cousins 2009 chevy with a built in controler. I have had the trailer to our local trailer guy and he says there's nothing wrong with the trailer. My local dealer says it's the trailer and they want me to go some place where they sell new trailers and try one, thats not possible. My trailer is only 3 yrs old and is very well built, not a home made job. Any help would be Great. Thanks The Shadowcop

Just tell em you went down to the trailer store and test drove a brand new one and it wont work with it either. Sounds like a problem with the controller.
