Journey Air Intake Tube - Fell Off

We have some friends that purchased a 2018 Journey (40'). They have about a 1000 miles on and had an issue two days ago. While climbing our local grade (Grapevine out of L.A.) their coach through some codes and forced them to stop, going into limp mode.

They eventually got toad to a Freightliner shop in Bakersfield. After several hours of head scratching, they finally found that the air intake tube that runs up to the corner of the rear cap had fallen off and fell over to one side. Under hard acceleration, it wouldn't draw enough air when climbing. The temporary fix was to disconnect that air line from the air box, before the air cleaner. Freightliner is referring them back to Winnebago for repair.

So.....here's my question....trying to help them......has anyone heard of this happening and will the rear cap need to come off to reattach. It's a rear radiator and the tube is not visible. I recommended they call Winnebago service, find out how the repair can be done and then have Winne recommend the best spot for repair in So Cal.

I haven't looked at the coach, but thought maybe the air box could be removed and the tube pushed back into position, again, I haven't seen it so curious about repair. Obviously, they would prefer not having to remove the rear cap.

Update....I should have added that it came lose where it connects to the opening in the upper rear cap.

Not sure how they do it with the newer coaches but with my previous coach (2002 Journey), I cannot see how that repair could be make without removing the rear cap.

Any possibility they can take the coach up to Junction City, OR to the Winnebago factory?

Probably requires cap removal. Take the RV to an authorized Winnebago service center. They will know how to do it. I take my Journey to General RV for body work.

"smlranger"......I forgot that Winnebago moved their diesel plant to Oregon. It's about a 15 hour drive from their house. Since the coach is brand new, they have other items that need addressing that the dealer has been dragging their feet on. I called them and recommended the trip to Oregon for repair, if necessary, and they can do their repair list while there.

I would highly recommend it. We were there last September and their service area was in full swing doing repairs on both Winnebago and CC's. Plus they were building Tours.
