Unhappy Unknown Problem

Howdy from south Texas, glad to be a member of the dodge forum.

Here is the problem I am having with my truck that I first noticed last summer when driving on the highway and maintaining a constant speed, then the vehicle begins to slow although I have not lifted off of the accelorator, if I press the accelorator further down I get no response.

However, if I release the accelorator completely and reapply, then the RMPs pick-up and the vehicle continues to accellarate. I can't tell if its something in the transmission or in the engine management system.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be helpfull.
