HELP With A Ford 460 ECM Computer

I own a 1992 Fleetwood Pace Arrow(class A) RV. Just recently the engine would not turn over. I drive it about every other month, so the RV was sitting for about a couple of months. I had a mechanic(35yrs. experience) look at it and it check the fuel pump(inside the gas tank) and it was NOT running.When he hooked up a direct hot wire to the pump, it was working...I replaced the fuel filter a week before the problems and the mechanic checked the fuel injectors and there was no fuel going to the injectors. He put ether in the intake, and the engine temporary started and died, so he determined it was not the ingitation module. So he determined it was the ECM computer. I found a company in Houston who could rebuild the computer and I shipped it off. They called me and said the ECM had already been rebuilt and could not be done again. I found out that the previous owner took it in for the recall #94b37 in 1994, so that might be the time it was rebuilt. So the Houston company found me another ECM with the correct numbers and it was shipped out. Installed the ECM...same problem, it will not start. I went to the Ford dealer and they said they could program the ECM I just bought, but they need the old ECM to get info off of it. Well, the company in Houston, AUTO AND HEAVY DUTY COMPUTER SUPPLY does NOT answer their phone nor do the return emails messages. When I bought the new ECM, I requested that they return the old ECM and I would pay shipping. So....the problem I do I get the new ECM programmed with the correct settings. Ford says they need the old ECM to program the new ECM...and if this Houston company does not return my old ECM, I am in trouble...any suggestions?...I am leaving on a family trip in 10 days, so I need HELP right away. Here are the stats on my RV:

1992 Fleetwood Pace Arrow 33ft.
ECM # F29F-12A650-ANA
Ford 460 7.5L
4 Speed Automatic Overdrive Transmission
