The sulfur smell is just that...sulfur and it comes from stale water sitting in the hot water heater too long. Regarding trailer brakes...6.5 may be a little much. Next time out and where you have the safe space...Walmart parking lot...get rig going at slow pace and manually apply trailer brakes only. If they lock up and slide...too high adjustment. Drop the numbers down until you feel the trailer brakes somewhat aggressively slow the entire rig down but not to the point of skidding. try this adjustment at graduated higher speeds making sure it is strong enough but not so tight they lock up. All this assuming you have good brakes on the trailer. I've found that setting 5 works well. With the trailer being a 2004 and not knowing when last brake service was done...this may be your next project. Sounds like you've got metal to metal going on with the trailer.
