    anyone else have this issue, when I am in reverse with my trailer, I goes to park itself and break hard to stop.

    I had this very often, easy to replicate. It's happening when I was in Drive, them goes in reverse slowly for 2-3 seconds

    You are likely lifting your butt out of the seat while you twist around to look behind you and you don't have your seat belt on. That causes the sensor in the seat to think you are no longer in the car so it shifts to park. Either keep your butt planted or buckle your seat belt. (It assumes if the seat belt is buckled that you are in the seat even if the sensor doesn't detect your weight.)
