    We are owners of Keystone Montana High Country 2022 295RL. This past weekend we traveled to Maggie Valley, NC. Our first trip going to the mountains of NC. All was well going up the mountain, but coming down the mountain, another story. As we were headed down the mountain near Black Mountain,NC the truck (2020 Chevy Z71 2500HD)began to shimmy just a bit when slowing the truck and camper down. Then it stopped. Then it started up again but this time more violent shimmy as we slowed to the posted 35 mph. It lasted about 4 minutes till we flattened out on the road but it was scary. Hubby said he will take the truck to the Chevy dealership to see about getting the brake rotors checked out and rotated. QUESTION;is this normal? I saw another truck along the road that was pulling a utility trailer with smoke pouring out from under the hood so think his brakes may have overheated. Before we head back on any future mountain trip I want to see how this shimmy can be avoided and settle my nerves?
