trailer brakes

Good morning....I do not have a brake controller hooked up yet....When I go to back up with trailer hooked up it seems that the brakes are on I cannot back up at all...I can pull it forward with no effort...the only way to back up is to unplug the round electric connector...Help thanx

Could it be your truck's back up light hot wire is going to your trailer's brake wire?

It wouldn't be the first time somebody miswired the truck connector and 'corrected' the problem by changing the trailer plug

I have a funny story about the time I picked up a trailer and the turn signal was wired to the brakes....
