Sudden Loss of Power on Inclines
I have an '03 Sprinter RV conversion with 67,000 miles. We're pulling a 2000lbs double axle trailer and have had zero problems for 5,000 miles. Suddenly today on an steep hill in Virginia doing 60 mph we lost power. We can do normal speeds on flat stretches and declines, but we can creep up steep hills in 1st gear and it sputters/surges but goes no more than 10 mph. Fuel filter, boost intake hose, something else?

Those two sound like a good place to start.
Find someone with the correct equipment to read the ECU codes. They should tell you where to look.
