I would check if your wheel bearings are adjusted correctly. Jack the tire off the ground and with a bar under the edge of the tire, see if you can move the tire.

How much play do you have in the steering wheel with the engine off? Do you know if you have a TRW adjustable steering box?
Gas MH owners seem to like a stabilizer more than many DP owners. Based on 85K miles without one (on the same RR10S chassis) I removed the one on the new to me 08 Navigator as it made driving noticeably tiring... I still put in 12+ hour days. You can read more about it here: https://www.irv2.com/forums/f258/mak...le-451209.html

This post is my opinion, worth what you paid for it.
Our New ride...08 HR Navigator 45. A nice upgrade after 14 years with a 04 Dynasty 42.

Your riding the brakes. Use the ehxaust brake down hills.

If its not working, You need to downshift on long hills and use the stab brake method of slowing.

Step on the brakes to drop 10MPH, let off so they cool and delete when the speed increases again.

If you need to do that more then 3 or 4 times, slow down and downshift another gear.

A wheel bearing that melted 2 ABS sensors would have burnt up and the wheel would have departed and be rolling down the highway by now.
