Interestingly whilst the stainless bolts won't suffer, the difference in the electrical potential between stainless and zinc galvanising will cause the zinc coating on the trailer to fail more quickly which will leave bare mild steel and subsequent corrosion issues. You can isolate the stainless bolts but I think in general you should avoid mixing galvanising and stainless.

Think the easy pout won't work as it is really tight.
If you have the facilities, or know a man that can, then i would do the following to release that bolt ............

Mig-weld a bolt of similar or greater size onto the broken end ........ whilst it is still very hot, douse it with cold water especially at the seized end ..... then use a spanner on the welded bolt to undo it, and it will come undone easily .....

If I were closer, I would do it for you, but Devon is a feck'in long way from Scotland !
