    I had this happen on a 01 EZ Loader Triton Trailer. It was the Solenoid and yes it happened back down a hill

    feel and/or look under the coupler to feel the plunger, then push up on it. if the brake cable has been pulled the break-a-way brakes could be applied. been there, done that, once. if you pull the cable too much, or step on the cable while stepping over the tongue, then it'll trip the break-a-way.

    And if it could be the solenoid, then check the wire connectors to be sure they are tight, and not corroded.

    If you use the swing away tongue often, there could be an intermittent short in the wire in the bundle that goes to the plug. Mine did the same thing and had to used the little lock out pin to be able to back up.
