Default 2009 Ram 2500 shifts to 4th - Safety Issue

I have a 2009 RAM 2500 that shifts to 4th gear without me doing anything. The problem is random in nature. I was taking my family camping and we were towing our 23 ft. camper down a steep hill when the truck shifted into 4th gear by itself. We were doing 65 mph at the time and when the truck went to 4th gear, the tires locked-up and the trailer began to swerve; I almost lost control of truck and camper and swerved into oncoming traffic.

I view this as a serious, life threatening, safety issue. I'm reading several other posts of this issue on different websites, but Dodge is not acknowledging the safety issue.

Any recommendations?
