brake clean all the contact points, hairspray the inside of the boot and clamp it.

That spot is prone to blowing off because right after the boot, the air takes a hard 90 degree turn. You have 30psi of air hitting the wall of the pipe at that turn. Thats some force. Clean the connection the best you can. Hairspray and all that.

I had one friends truck where he had to double clamp that side. Its the only one I've ever seen like that but we tried everything.

Ask dieselsite.. they have a proceedure for it..i used to say hairspray but they specifically said no .
i would scuff it a bit with sand paper near the tip if it was me.

But like i said iirc jen at dieselsite corrected my last post.

NEVER let sand paper touch the tip, or near it

Yeah..just in case it is not obviouse
you do have to consider the sand particles,
they could fall in the tube , stick to oil deposits etc..

that sort of thing would be best done with tubes off the truck , then cleaned afterwards.
