Thanks for the follow-up. It helps to know the cause and solution.
It also gets me to thinking. I noticed today while tooling along in a moment of solitude that I heard the vacuum pump run about 3 times (5 seconds or less) during a 40 minute trip. Thinking I have a door acuator on the way out. Probably wouldn't have given much more though until it was running constantly. Thanks.
