I have a class A RV. Ford chasis. It has a shimmer or vibration between about 26 to 31 mph, when applying the gas, not while coasting. I have been told it probably is the torque convertor. If you think the same thing, how expensive is it to repair? If I drive on it for a little while longer can it cause damage to something else, could I be stuck out in the middle of no where, or will it just continue to be an annoyance? Thanks.

COST? Varies from place to place. Surely over $1000 at a shop.A small Ma and Pop local auto salvage yard might suggest a reliable, inexpensive, small shop. They know, who's who!

Check your "U" Joints. Maybe it could be, just that simple!
