Keep blowing hose on the supercharger

I have a 2003 6.0 diesel that now has about 80,000 miles on it. Most of those miles are towing a 5th wheel trailer cross country. We have had the hose on the supercharger blow off 4 times. Always when towing and usually when going up a hill. All of these times the Ford dealers have replaced the hose and clamp "under warranty", with us paying a $100 deductable on the work. So I figure Ford knows this is a problem, because they hardly ever cover hoses as a warranty item. But what happens when we get to the magic 100,000 mile mark? Clearly there is some problem that is blowing this hose. Dealerships report that they have replaced many of these hoses. Anyone got any thoughts on this problem? Is it worth the time and trouble to contact Ford directly?

Its probably caused by "overboost", especially if it happens when your pulling your 5th wheel. They may not be replacing it correctly, your suppose to clean the oil from the hard pipe with alcohol or something to get rid of the oil residue, then replace the soft pipe and hose clamp. There may be other issues that some of the techs will know about but that makes sense to me. Warranty work sucks and doesn't pay the tech very well, so you may be having a half fast tech doing the work (I don't know if it pays good or not though). Oh yeah, its a turbo, not a supercharger

I could understand the first hose blowing off and paying the deductible, but 3 more times after that? That's rape and I would have been furious at the second time. Turbo yes....super, no.
