Default Caliper issues... again

back in july i had a caliper sticking on my front driver side brake... started on a long trip, would stick for awhile and then let up. I stopped for a meeting after it had been dragging and it was smoking. Came back out an hour later and rode perfectly fine the whole 2 hour drive home. It kept happening so I got it to the shop and replaced the caliper and flex hose.

I have been fine until today, again long trip, would start grabbing for 5 miles at highway speed, then would be fine for 10. Am i completely missing something on how this could be happening again on a brand new caliper?
