Welcome to the site! Are the brakes being applied going down the steep hill? If so, it is more than likely the infamous rear brake chatter! This is a constant on Prowlers with the brake rotor on the rear drivetrain. Brake rotor could be warped, brake pads need replaced, anti-rattle spring is weak, or missing, or all of the above! If the brakes are not being applied, then the Oneway bearing could be the next suspected part! AC issued an advisory on the bearing that in certain conditions they recommend removing it. Heavy loading (steep hills!), plowing, or other adverse conditions. I removed mine (2009 XTX) about two years ago, eliminated a lot of noise and only a slight decline in engine braking.
