48re adjustment question

Hey guys, got a 2003 H.O auto 4wd not too long ago, still getting used to a 3rd gen. Tranny started acting a little funny this weekend. It stumbled going into 2nd once, and then today when I was pulling out of a parking lot it revved to about 1800 and then slammed forward. Felt like it was in neutral and then shifted into drive mid-throttle. It also seems to me like it's just down on power as compared to the day I bought it. I've got paperwork from a reputable trans shop showing the trans rebuild about 30,000 miles ago. The previous owner barely drove the truck after the trans was rebuilt, so although it was 30,000 miles ago it was about 3 years ago, and I've driven it a lot since I bought it. I'm thinking all of my driving has just broken something in and needs adjustment now. Or maybe a defective gov. solenoid or something was put in. Also heard something about a TV cable adjustment? Any ideas what direction to look in? Thanks.
