Was pulling a trailer today and lost my brakes!

I was headed to go move a piano for my parents church and on the way I lost my power brakes. It was everything I could do to get there safely. When I got there I checked fuses and looked around and the brake booster hose has come off the intake manifold. EZ fix but I will definitely be picking up some hose clamps tomorrow.

It's frightening isn't it when you loose PS or PB.
I remember when I first got my Hemi. She needed a tune up real bad especially the TB clean.
She would stall at low speeds.
I was approaching a large roundabout (a big circular road traffic management system for my American cousins lol) and the truck stalled.
Trying to brake and turn the steering wheel to get around this, this was a nightmare.
I'm a very strong bloke and it took some stomping and turning to get her where I wanted to go.
It's such a shock when you don't realise, that your trucks not running and you have no power anything.
Still.....I don't have that problem now, as I run 100% of the time with my 3" stainless custom exhaust system with my DMH cutout open.
I really notice nowadays, that the engine isn't running
Good to here like me, you came outa' this unscathed but with brown shorts lol.

Thanks man! It was not to bad, I just used both feet and my gears to keep from hitting anything. It could have turned out bad though.

Well I was having a little fun the other day doing some hard launches from the dig, motor TQ'in over must have made it get loose. Guess I loosed it up enough to finally fall off.
