F150 Brake controller

Periodically, my 2014 F150 claims "trailer disconnected" when I activate the integrated brake controller. All connections are clean and trailer lights function normally but brakes are not functioning. Anyone else have this problem?
Next step is to connect the truck to another trailer and another TV to my trailer and see if the problem persists...

Have not seen that happen on my 2012 F150. Have a bungee on the umbilical cuz a sharp turn will give me the message but not use if the trailer brake. Mine is an FX4 w tow package. J
