Wiring problem

I have a 2011. Superduty. Having trouble with trailer brakes working on my flatbed trailer. Everything except trailer brakes works perfect lights,blinkers,brake lights. When I plug in to truck it says trailer disconnected. When I check voltage on plug on the truck I can read voltage on everything except trailer brakes.
Thanks for the help

have you ruled out the trailer? I had a problem with mine and it was corrosion inside the plug on the trailer.

By inside, I mean removing the screws and taking it apart.

That was my next step. It just seemed funny I could not read voltage on the truck inlet

Did you have someone activating the booster in the truck while you were testing?
I can't remember if the harness needed to see ground for it to work but I chased a similar issue and even swapped the boosters before I found it.
