1985 itasca 454 chevy 30' michael 10-13-08  
Hi, About 2 weeks ago I started noticing on the highways going about 55 mph a weird shimmer and lose of power. I kept driving it that day up to my camp site. On the hills I noticed the same type of feeling with lose of power. We kept it up there at our camp site for 2 weeks, and then we were moving it the other day. The problem seemed to have gotten alot worse, on the small hills almost lose of complete power. On larger hill it would stall out. I would retart it. It would have a quick moment of power and stall again. I finnally got it up the hill and it would shift alright for a while then bog down again. The problem getting worse and worse. Where it was stalling out every 5 minutes and going not more that 15 mph. I finnally pulled it off the road. I moved it for the tow truck, it had a brief moment of power and then stalls. I towed it to a nearby rv shop. Im very tight on money and the guy at the shop said hes not going to get to it for another week. Just wondering if anyone can give me some thoughts on what it might be? thanks

Sounds like a clogged fuel fitler. Change it yourself and save the money.
