Default Transmission and Neutral

Well I searched this forum for hours and did not find any answers. My 2007 Ram 1500 Q/C 2wd 4.7 will sometimes slip out of reverse it does not do it very often but when it does it makes me think I've backed into someone or something.

I have everything serviced regularly including the tranny so I need some opinions on what causes this and is it an easy repair or will the tranny give out soon?

Thanks.

Is it the shifter being sloppy and falling down into N for R? Check to make sure it is actually locked in gear before moving, I noticed sometimes I have to jiggle mine to get it to fall into the groove... It's most likely your shifter being loose/sloppy, others have had similar issues and I think the dealer tightened/fixed it.

The shifter isn't loose. It must be on the tranny.

So when it happens do you put the shifter down to N then back to R and it's fine? I still think it has to do with the shifter/or maybe the linkage on the trans itself...

I'm thinking it's the adjustment on the trans because there's no slack in the shifter.

Maybe try blocking the wheels, putting parking brake on, and then putting it in R (engine off) then crawl under the truck and see if you can move the mechanism and get it to fall down to N, or lock up into R....if it moves you know that's the issue and it's not engaging properly...I'm sure there's a nut adjuster or something on there to adjust it, probably self explanatory if you look at it...
