Lost power in Motorhome while driving

We were driving along and we loss power. We were able to pull on the side of the road. We eventually had to get a tow to a Ford dealership. They said it was the main computer module that caused the issue. We had to go home without our MH while we wait for them to work out a few glitches. Has anyone else experienced this?

We had a 2015 2860ds with ford chassis that when we left the camp site over the course of about 3 miles dumped about 5 gallons of gas into the engine and it was actually running out of the exhaust tail pipe, had to get towed to ford dealership, (another story in it self, 3 tow trucks and 12 hours to be towed 20 miles) took ford a month to fix, turnd out computer had gone bad and was holding random fuel injectors open continuassly.

Happened to us when our M.H. was less than 6 months old. Also a Ford. Fortunately we were just a few miles from a ford dealership.

My 2013 Mirada just died on the freeway between Phoenix and Tucson. Towed to a shop in Coolidge that found a shorted wire on #1 ignition coil. Fixing the wire and replacing the coil solved the problem. I sent the bill to Ford and they reimbursed me.
