Hazard lights flashed on

Over the weekend I was towing my 8' popup camper (~1500#) and had a rather large bounce/bump at an uneven bridge joint on the interstate. When this happened, the hazard lights came on.

It's an 16/Titanium/AWD WITHOUT the factory tow. The place that put on the hitch & wiring is well established and specializes in towing.

I can't figure out what is going on. Anyone have any ideas?

I believed I noticed that too under emergency braking. Might be a G sensor or something that activates them?

Could it indicate the "trailer sway control" kicking in?

Hmmm, something like ABS kicking in maybe?

I would not think it was the sway control. I don't have the factory package so it shouldn't be on ... yet. (focccus) Do I remember reading that the sway control lights the blind spot lights?
