Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ram's motor speeds up to the point the brakes won't hold it. Have to slam it
into park and let the moter RV's go down. Asked dealer and had them try to
duplicate it...No luck !!!! It does it when you are on an incline and trailering
something (launcing a Boat). Any ideals ??

The only thing I can think of is the engine is shifting on the motor mounts and somehow causing the throttle to open. Not much I know but intermittent problems are a real pain.
