I always wondered why rv manufacturer’s web sites asked if you were in the east or west.

That is not believable ! Do you think the factory is wiring trailers or vehicles by which coast they're heading to ? Really ?

There are different wire color codes, but that depends on the trailer type, not what coast your on.
The blade positions don't change.

Here's a couple of pics of the wires near my trailer tires. I was also concerned with hanging wires. I have a single axle so the set up may be a bit different. BTW I found a 7 pin tester on Amazon that is plugged into the 7 pin jack. I used to check to see if my brake controller wiring was correct. It was pretty inexpensive, maybe it will help with trouble shooting.

That’s pretty average on the backside of the drum. Remember, you need slack to allow the suspension to move between the frame and axle.

Do you have a battery installed on the trailer? Is it charged up? Unless you did some work to your truck's electrical system I am betting that the problem is your break-away switch. When you plug in the truck it suddenly gets power and energizes the brakes. The other vehicles may not have the charge wire relay installed that sends power to the 7 pin. They come stock uninstalled. You might want to remove and re-insert your breakaway switch pin to make sure.
