Allison downshift

I have a coachmen santara with cummins allison. On even the slightest downgrade with any lessening of throttle pressure the trans will downshift. There are times when you might want to stay in a higher gear. Is this something adjustable or possibly a sensor problem? Anyone with similar issues? Help me if you can.

Yours probably indicates it goes to 4th gear. You can have the trans re programmed to only select 2nd gear. Or you could turn the brake off.
