Had the air filter intake ducting replaced last year. Yesterday after dramatic loss of power and turbo boost I discovered that the new duct (robust dryer vent hose by appearance) had collapsed and was torn with bits sucked into the filter. The question I have for other Monaco owners with same configuration as a 07 Camelot is how much duct is needed? It seems logical that the correct answer is just enough to reach from air filter intake to the connection point at air intake point. I donít see a reason for extra length, other than enough to allow for some slight movement or flexing. There was at lease 6 - 8 extra feet of hose/duct which allowed for it to snake around in the space in left side of engine compartment. Even with the roadside repair, there is excess duct and I am considering a further reduction in the length of the duct before trying to get back on the road.
Feedback from other owners of similar vintage with the 400ISL, side radiator configuration would be appreciated. Pictures would be a bonus.
Thanks in advance for your support

In retrospect, I am so sorry that I didnít research this issue previously. There were posts from years ago about this issue, one of which where the owner had the identical problem I did. Bill Willard posted the fix years before I had a problem and others had sourced the duct as well. The repair shop I utilized left excess duct that has led to complications well beyond the original issue. Lesson learned, donít make a move without first researching on IRV2!!!
