Made it home today, everything worked fine, electric power to switches never did go off.

On a side note I was watching the turbo boost pressure as there is a couple of 8% grades on 299w, one is 3 miles long. Seems there are 2 peaks in the boost. 1st one occurs at 1900 rpm and it hits 29 psi then it immediately drops 1, 2 psi to 27. Seems to stay there and as rpm's climb to 2900, there it peaks at 30 psi. It looked like it was holding but I had to back off on throttle for a corner. This was towing the 5th wheel locked in 3rd gear. The base of this climb has a 25 mph corner almost right at the start of the grade, then its pedal to the floor going up the 8%.

I wonder what Ford and Duramax boost curve looks like just for comparison?
