Saw this video and thought it was interesting. Nothing new to me but it may be worth sharing with inexperience trailer users.
Just let go of it, it will eventually unplug itself.

It is also the reason that trailer tires are stiffer than normal auto tires, to cut down the sway. It is no fun to get the tail wagging the dog. I had my trailer start to oscilate like that at 60, and had to change my shorts. (18 ft flatbed beavertail, twin axle).
