A-h-h-h...now I get it!
Somehow, once the pigtail line was gashed, the marker wire came into contact with the chargeline wire, which is energized by either/both the trailer and the tow vehicle- right?
And as suggested above, water could have played a role- the perfect conductor if it got into that gash in the pigtail.
Thanks for sticking with me, folks!
