Exclamation Need help !!! Exhaust question

I have a 2010 ram 1500 hemi . I recently had a flowmaster muffler installed at a local exhaust shop , this was roughly 3 weeks ago , from the day it left the shop the exhaust sounded amazing , was loud , and would rumble from start up and even when truck was warm , but this past weekend I let the truck sit from Sunday to Wednesday . When I went to go start the truck it was way too quiet compared to what it was , I even let the truck run and drove it about 10 miles , then started it back up to see if it would be louder but it was almost as quiet as it was stock..... Also when starting the truck up , whether its cold or hot , there's no rumble at all , and it feels hesitant to want to even get loud .... Only thing done was the flowmaster muffler . Sounded beautiful up until the weekend !!! What could have happened ... Help please

Seems weird. Did you ever disconnect the battery for a couple minutes to let the computer reset after putting the muffler on? (If it was welded on you should have disconnected the battery anyway). If not I'd say try that. The computer will reset and then "re-learn" what the truck is doing with the new exhaust. That's always an easy first option.

I haven't tried anything with the battery at all yet but
Thanks for the idea I may try that in a bit , I know I'm
Not losing my mind and know I didn't just get use to the sound , it's like someone removed the flowmaster and welded the stock one back on over
The weekend!!!!haha the truck was
Loud before ,
It was loud during start up , driving , inside the cab, outside the cab ,
Now to be honest it sounds like shit , we did get
Some heavy rain the weekend ,and the truck sat for 4 days until yesterday , then decided to take it for. Ride to get the rust off the rotors from sitting in the rain and that's when I realized a major difference in the sound of the exhaust .
