Default 2005 pilot shimies while braking downhill

what might be a common cause of shimmying front wheels on 2005 Pilot pulling
a medium sized / weighted trailer while applying the brakes downhill other
than warped front rotors? I do not notice any shimming at all braking on
level ground with or without the trailer.

thx
bob

What is weight of trailer, two wheeler, four wheeler? What kind of hitch?
Does trailer have brakes?

Thus spake "Seamus J. Wilson" <sligo@cox.net> :

Compensating hitch? Brake balance trailer to Pilot? Tongue weight
vs. spec total and %? Grooved road? 40 MPH vs 100 MPH? (oh yeah,
I've seen that one)
