Fleetwood 460 engine bog

I have a 1989 Fleetwood 37J with a Ford 460 engine. Problem I have is when under load I cannot get it past .15 MPH. At idle the engine runs great. I thought it might be the ignition module but thought I would try to get someexpert advice first. I have only had the RV for a few months and it did do this a little but now it is all the time. I tried letting the engine warm up first but it didn't help. Any advice provided would be greatly appreciated.

My 460 had the same problem climbing hills. I replaced the ABS sensor (single one on the pumpkin) and it's good now! ABS sensor acts like a shift sensor which mine does not have on the trans.

No ABS on that chassis.
Sounds more like plugged fuel filter or failing fuel pump.
Replace the fuel filter and check fuel pressures.

DOH! Just realized this is an old thread in an Archive forum. Oh well, maybe it will help someone else.
