    ...and I feel like you have jinxed me! I want to find a bulletproof solution, so that I am not stuck in a Walmart parking lot, in the 'hood somewhere on my side of the Rockies :jester:

    Yo...walmart fix was a no-go, couldn't find a rubber coupler big enough. Tried a different fix and got further down the road and blew it again. called for a tow at that point cause it wasn't safe being on the side of the road.

    Camper is now at the towing services yard in albany (about 3 hours from home), we are back home. I've got a new stock IC pipe showing up at the dealer tomorrow, and I'm going to call PPEI and see if i can get a lighter tune, I'm now wondering it the new camper is just too heavy to be pulling with the current tune.

    Then I'll go pick up the camper on saturday.

    How much does it weigh? I have pulled 19-20k pretty regular, up some long 6-7% grades. I wouldn’t think you were over doing it

    I haven't gotten it on a scale yet, but it's probably 16-17k. I'll slow my roll till i get the new pipe on. My confidence is just really shaken right now.

    Don't fret, my friend, it is going to be okay!! I seriously do not think you are overloaded, nor have made the wrong call in your tune. I haul heavier loads, more often, and with a hotter tune. You got bit by a hose issue that I need to do more research on, I have just been swamped at work.


    I found some posts about LML owners randomly having that same issue you mention, even with stock setups.



    I am going to renew my DuramaxForum account this weekend, and so some reading, because I certainly want to upgrade this connection before I have issues. I am going to haul 22K over Lookout into Montana this month. It might even be heavier, if I can fit one more attachment on the equipment trailer :D2
