That would indicate there is something wrong with your trailer wiring most likely. You need to verify that both stop/turn signal circuits on your vehicle 7-way are working like they should. These are the circuits that tell the Curt Echo Mobile # C51180 you are applying the brakes. So if the controller isn't activating like it should that's where the problem would be. Typically this issue is caused by corrosion on the pins of the 7-way which can be sanded off but it could also be caused by a blown fuse.
