Gasoline or diesel?? Either way, and especially on a diesel, one of the first things to try would be changing the fuel filter. Maybe someone else can address the module possibility...

Bruce & Elaine, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here. Your particular scenrio can be caused by many different things.
I would look for any warning indicators.
If fuel filters, electrical connections and grounds all seem to be good, I would then have an engine shop plug into the system and get any fault codes that have been previously recorded and fix the problem. Good luck and keep us posted.
Be sure to check out the Apline Owners forum down the page of the main forum. I will put in a short cut for this post to that area.

Bruce & Elaine,

I don't see anything that the Vansco module controls that would cause "stop running loss of power after a little wait Ican restart again." Sounds like a trip to Cummins is called for.

Possible mechanical issues: junk in fuel tank causing clogged fuel intake and/or fuel filter, pinched fuel line, open fuel line connection (probably 'tween lift pump & injection pump) that allows sucking air into fuel, injection pump going bad, lift pump going bad, clogged fuel filter way past its service interval.
Possible electrical issues: bad connections including clean, firm grounds (lots of these to check), chafing wire looms.

IIWM, I'd change fuel filter immediately as advised above, and cut open the old one to see if it is clogged. If not, do a full visual for signs of fuel leaks, pinched lines, etc. Then proceed to wire loom visuals, then electrical connections. If you can't find it yourself this way, you'll need professional service for additional checks on lift pump performance, etc.
