Engine - turned off by its own for a couple of seconds

The other day while driving down Interstate with cruise set at 70 mph and probably going right at that desired speed the engine just 'turned off'! All dash gauges, tach and speedometer went towards zero. The in a matter of very few seconds, less than 5, the engine turned back on. No codes were set, no check engine light ever came on either. Then I drove home another 1,800 miles with not hic-cups! Anyone else ever have something like this?
Thanks,

Yes, happened to me and several others. I don't believe anyone has figured out what cause of that yet.

Thanks,
You may want to check the internet and search for factory recalls on that model of Silverado.
Your year and model are not listed.

Actually the profile says 2007 Silverado, but I believe she's having problems with her motor home.

X2, the Berkshire is their motorhome and the Silverado is their toad.

I have also had this shutdown occur a few times to me. As the OP stated, no codes set and no check engine light. As secret squirrel stated- must be aliens!!(LOL!) Have not seen Freightliner or anyone else come up with a solution to this issue.

A total electrical power loss is most likely caused by the chassis battery disconnect.

1- Check that all cables are firmly connected to the battery terminals and no corrosion present.
2- Check the "Negative" cable (usually black) cable are properly grounded, no corrosion, and firmly connected to the frame of the couch.

3-Follow the "Positive" cable (usually red) out of the battery into the master switch or disconnect relay or any device in line with that cable from the coach battery as that battery is the one to keep all alive.
I have read another thread here with similar issue and one of those devices were faulty.
I hope it helps some.

Would't you be able to run the coach just off the alternate . once started the battery should be able to be disconnected and the alt keeps it going ? /i could see a problem with the ignition switch

Engine stopped

3 years ago I had the same exact problem twice. Once was on the freeway, the second time was on the off-ramp. That one worried me a little bit. It hasn't happened since then. Keeping my fingers crossed must work.
