I think it might be a stuck downshift valve.

Matt, Please let me know what you find out, I have the same trouble, It worked great for a day or so them stopped all down shifting from giving it gas. It will down shift when coming to a stop and no matter the length you set the (TV) it will still not down shift.

It was a sticky valve. This happened after winter storage. Upon further inspection, the cable was being pulled out of adjustment because the valve was stuck. Dismantled for cleaning fixed this problem.
