I can't help with the answer but I have noticed a number of threads on this topic.

Try using the 'Search' facility in the top right hand corner of every page.

Do you get any warning lights when it happens?
As much info as possible will help others to help you out

If you inadvertently ride the brake at the same time as the throttle it can put the engine into a reduced power mode temporarily. A couple of restarts without doibg it will reset it.

Invest in an OBD reader, as cheap as £10. Free apps online.
At least it may give you some indication if there are fault codes.

Thasks for the advice Burgo, I can see others have said this also, I have only just got the MH and drive an automatic car so your suggestion is quite possible..Thx

You may need to register but I had this problem with 2019 Fiat ducato, had only done 14,000 miles and just out of warranty.

Won’t be this problem for OP as his is an earlier model with single dumb egr. The EGR could still be the fault, but it won’t throw those codes.

Any other symptoms?
How long does loss of power last?
How often does it occur and in what situation?

You were lucky to have any power in the first place , our 2018 Fiat Ducato 2.3 180 was a gutless pile of junk ⚠️😂

Since 1996, had Elddis/Swift/Rapido/Rimor/Chausson MHs. Autocruise/Globecar PVCs/Compactline i-138
If it's only at higher speeds it could be a sticking turbo wastegate, easily fixed by releasing/lubing it. If it only goes slowly, ie not above 30 it could be a loose turbo pipe or the pipe has a pinprick hole in it, both of which will mean loss of pressure

I had a similar issue last year, the slightest touch of throttle and brake, loss of power., apparently uts a 'design' feature..
