I recently purchased a 2016 Georgetown XL motorhome, with the ford V10 engine
(5 speed transmission
). During our second trip I experienced " loss of power" for brief periods of time while going up hills. Speed was approximately 55 - 60 miles an hour when it occurred. RPM's would drop, I would let up on the accelerator and the rpm would correct. Each incident would result in 5 to 6 continuous drops in rpm and then return to "normal" for an extended period of time. In an trip of just over 200 miles these incident occurred 4 times; sometimes 45 minutes to one hour apart. I was traveling in southern Missouri where there are no extensive grades, top speed was usually 65 mph. Total miles on my coach is under 1,500 miles.
JA: Good to know. The mechanics have tons of experience dealing with this sort of thing. How old is your transmission?
Customer: Brand new
JA: Ok. We'll get you to one of the go-to transmission guys. Other than the problems you mentioned, how has the car been running?
Customer: The motor coach has otherwise run good
JA: Noted. I'll pass this info along to the mechanic so that he can get you a quick fix. Anything else I can tell the Ford Mechanic before I connect you two?
Customer: The coach (truck) battery doesn't keep a charge; plus I detected a "clicking" sound that seemed to come from under the driver side dash when the loss of power episodes occurred
JA: Got it. Let's get this figured out. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and connect you two. You'll be on the road in no time.
