Truck falls on its face???

I have noticied this more and more lately and was curious if anyone else has the same problem. It seems when I hit a good bumb which Louisiana's roads have plenty of, my truck loses power for a second.. My foot will never move off the go pedal but the RPMs fall almost to the point you think its going to stall then take off like nothing is wrong?? I thought it might have been a loose chassis ground or something but still has me puzzeled????

This is what I found for P008C

Description: The powertrain control module (PCM) monitors the fuel cooling pump driver circuit for an
electrical concern. This DTC is set when the PCM detects an open condition on the fuel
cooler pump (FCP) circuit.

Possible Causes:
• Fuel cooler pump
• FCP circuit open in the harness
• VPWR circuit open in the harness

Diagnostic Aids: VPWR voltage should be present at the fuel cooler pump connector.

I took it to the dealership and they checked my grounds and batteries..Didnt fix anything, but they seem to think it is a short in the wiring harness and unless your are still under your basic warranty its an expensive game of chasing a ghost..
