Check the codes and get back to us.

Who installed it? It should not effect the abs system.

I towed a 17 ft popup which was 3500 and never used electric brakes.

If you think it had something to do with the electric brakes, tell him to disconnect them and see if the problems go away.

4700 is a lot more than the 3 to 4 thousand you stated. Yes, either electric or surge brakes would be in order.
