anyone in the Tucson area??

Hey guys..been awhile. Here's my problem(aside from needing a shrink, plastic surgeon and the winning PowerBall numbers) I'm currently staying with my daughter and son in law just north of Tucson after a run up to Bakersfield(yeah, I know..Bakersfield??? LOL) anyway, I think I've got some debris in my fuel tank..looses power when pushing a load, especially uphill. cel comes on. shut her down for a few and she fires up and runs good for a while, then symptoms repeat. Its all happened before and "scuffy" in all his infinate wisdom and skill, was right on as for telling me what the problem was(and possibly is again)..crap in my fuel tank clogging up the intake tube under higher fuel demand. Anyway, before heading to Bakersfield, I had a delivery in west hollywood...ATOP A MILE LONG 30-45 DEGREE GRADE!!!.. problem started shortly afterwards and took almost 2 1/2 hours to get over the grapevine(base to the crest). Ironically though, after a day and a half at the flying J, came back over and no problems(other than she still dogs quite a bit on the hills) until I started out of the LA basin heading toward PHX. All that aside, I'm wondering if there's any member in the general Tucson area, who has a place I can park this beastie(an 03 E550 20' box truck, converted into a "motor home") that would be willing to help me drop the tank, clean it out and re-install it. Haven't got any money to pay but I can supply the coffee.
Anyone?? Thanks.
