Strange noise while coasting, what is it?

I have a 2009 American Tradition 42P with a 425 Cummins ISL. Started to get a strange noise when letting off the accelerator, but before putting drag on the drivetrain. This sound familiar to anyone?

Just started the other day on my way from FL to SC. Only happens in that sweet spot when you have the the pedal where it is not accelerating or decelerating.

I am reluctant to think is from the engine as it sounds like its coming from up front.

Check your rear ride height, if it's to low it will make a vibration.
