While the trailer was stored, I had two locks on it: one on the ball-hitch socket and another through the latching pin.

What the heck made these scratches?

Thanks for your help solving this mystery!!
They look almost like claw marks from a bear.

If it were a cable wrapped around the tongue, there would be abrasions on all square edges of the tongue, there would be none on the flat part.

As I see that the AS is appearantly away from storage, could these scratches be from prying the load bars off of the brackets when you disconnected at home?

I think it is paint related and a UV issue since it looks like it is on the bend or edge

Good, thought, but with this kind of hitch (same as ours), the location of the scratches really rules that out...we have a pry bar, but never have had to use it, as the bars come off easily by raising the trailer a bit....and if we did, it wouldn't contact the tongue there....they would be on both sides, too. It is a mystery!
