The Jayco unit is VERY new and so far I haven't seen any reports on this site of anyone that has any experience with it.
What hitch do you have? A 'little shimmy' makes it sound like a tire balance issue. With sway, the trailer is wagging the tow vehicle from side to side. If you have a sway issue, maybe your hitch or mechanical sway bar needs to be checked and maybe readjusted.
The Hayes sites says that all trailer brakes are applied simultaneously if sway is detected. That seems kind of like using the brake controller to apply just the trailer brakes.
