I will definitely check the torque on the bolts prior to any disassembly... Maybe 8 hrs on the road caused them to loosen up because I didn't torque them enough when I replaced the gasket last year.

I really don't believe it was leaking the entire time... I'm guessing maybe the last 30 minutes of the 8 hours.
I'm more worried about it catching fire.
