With the 5th wheel I'm seeing higher boost levels than I did with the lighter travel trailer so I'm thinking I better do the upgrade but I'm wondering how urgent it is.
Stock configuration 107k

Most likely caused by heat degredation. I would suspect most failures are happening to trucks that operate most in southern states.

I live in MA but yes, it's heat cycling that gets them no matter where you live. The problem is the collar shouldn't be plastic which get's brittle in time.

Several of us it has happened to while pulling heavy and Rodney and I both had them blow in traffic on major interstates. Mine was Friday afternoon on I-85 and thanks to Rodney, who had already experienced this and warned us, I was prepared with a spare tube from Ford and it took about 10 minutes to change it and get back on the way. My dealer swapped out the pipe and then I put on the H&S, so now I have two spares. We have several 6.7s that go with us camping and a few just won't listen as they all pull 5ers in the GA heat. I carry the spare just in case I get to say, "I told you so!"

I'm with Chad. I replaced mine with the H&S at 4 years and 22k. $350 is cheap insurance to not be sitting on the side of the interstate with wife, kiddo and fiver in tow. Still have it in the toolbox in case someone else needs it.
