I can't come up with a good answer for this other than "it's electrical", duh. Maybe your blinker fluid is low?

I could suggest re-seating all of your fuses - easy; and re-seating the connectors in the TIPM - a real PITA, and seeing what happens.

How fast is fast? 2x?

Actually sounds like a grounding problem. I once had something similar going on along with several other electrical symptoms with an old Chevy Astro I had. It took the mechanic about 15 minutes to find it and no parts charge!

True. I had a rusty socket that caused problems too. It's not an uncommon problem with boat trailers either. Not that you should be seeing much rust on a newer vehicle but it's all part of the ground that completes the circuit.
