bad sound when towing???

Whenever I hook up my dump trailer, usually only taking off or going uphill I hear a nasty sound, maybe grinding? The tranny was rebuilt 9 months ago so dont think it is that........... any ideas?

if it was coming from the truck, check driveshafts and ujoints for play, depending on size of the trailer, it might just have surge brakes, it autolocks itself when it starts slowing down to asst. the truck. you cant really turn those off, but when you start again it pops.
