Angry Vice LPR hose disconnecting

So for some reason lately, whenever I air up my Vice, it'll air up fine, but when I try to fire it will either lose pressure in the rammer until I start trying to fire, and after a few clicks it will fire, followed by a pop and hissing of air from the solenoid, or just go right to the pop and hissing without losing pressure.

When I opened it up I noticed that the hose that goes UNDER the solenoid is disconnected from the barb at the left of the gun. I'll reconnect it, reassemble the gun, air it up, and it does it again.

I've played with the hpr and lpr with no luck, and I also don't have an lpr tester. I have a tournament this Saturday (Panic!) so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Your lpr is too high if it's blowing the hose, it's a safety feature designed to prevent you from over pressurizing the solenoid.
If you do not have a pressure tester, get one, you've more then likely put your pressures totally out of whack for the lpr. If you are using a tester and the lpr is at the 70-75 stock pressure range, replace the hose, it could simply be worn out.

This.

Or if you have plenty to spare, clip the end for a *fresh* connection.
