Question Turbo coupler blues

I've got an 04 F250 w/6.0 that has 41K on it.
At about 20k miles it started blowing off the rubber coupler connection at the turbo which connects the tube to the cooler. The coupler's been changed by Ford about 4 times and the last time it stayed on for almost 10K. It's always the upper coupler at the turbo, never the lower one.
Anyone had this problem?
Any suggestions?

Clean it up with carb cleaner. Let it dry and then sand it with 220 grit wet and dry sandpaper. Clean it again with carb cleaner. Mix up some JB Weld and spread it onto the pipe. Borrow some thread from you wife, and wrap it round and round the end of the pipe maybe twenty times. Smear the JB Weld over the top of the thread and let it dry overnite. Reinstall boot after cleaning the boot with carb cleaner.

Thank you both -
The website's info on their boot explained my problem to a tee.....and it had a whole bunch of other goodies I'm interested in once I can get it to stay on the road.
And dieselmonkey, your's was my plan b. I'd already realized the oil was part of the issue and was cleaning with carb cleaner to get myself home when it did let go but was hesitant to resort to an adhesive or epoxy until I had no other choice.
