2013 FE trailer light blinking

We have a 2013 FE SEL with the factory towing package, this summer I bought a new 72"X12' aluminum trailer (with LED lights all around) to haul our Honda Pioneer UTV. The trailer lights will blink really fast (fender markers and tail lights) when no other lights are on, but if I turn the FE head lights or parking lights on the trailer lights no longer blink.

This isn't a big deal since most of the time I use one of my trucks to pull the trailer, all my other trailers are too big for the FE and have the 7 pin plug so I can't even back up to one of them to see if the lights blink on those.

I am guessing that it probably has something to do with the lack of resistance in the LED lights on the trailer. Is there an easy fix for this?

As of 10/16/14:
2013 SEL 2.0L 4WD, 39000 miles
virtually every option avalible:
panoramic roof, trailer tow, active park assist and blind spot system to name a few

2004 F150 5.4L FX4, 62000 miles
custom tuned Edge Evo, Airaid intake, 2.5" lift, air bagged rearend, onboard air system, 325/60/18 Nitto TG on 18X9 Helo Maxx6, and MUCH more

2005 Focus ZX4, 164000+ miles and still going strong

2000 Nissan Frontier SE crew, 4X4, 105000 miles
