Thanks for the reply, I've definitely driven it just as I normally would and my driving style is pretty aggressive. I love the Locking rear diff on this as when you accelerate hard (empty) from a rolling start the right rear slips only for maybe 1/2 tire rotation before it locks and it feels like you're getting hit in the shoulder blades with a 2x4. I love the Power, cant wait to get my 5th wheel RV next year and see how it pulls 13k lbs!!

Thanks,
Epicenter

Thanks for the reply
For a normal regen it just does its thing and you won't notice it unless you're in stop and go traffic. You'll notice it's idling higher than normal. You get the message when you're driving slow with really no load and it will tell you to keep driving in order for it to perform the regen.

I told her I believed it was because of the apparently long time it spent between my dealership and the Factory Idling (crazy 13 Hrs!). Interesting that' I've never seen another one since and I've got 4619 miles on the truck now but it spends very little time idling and very little time with any city driving/stoplight to stoplight.

Thanks for the reply!
When I meant was, when the regen occurred with 50 miles on the truck (your original post said this happened at 50 miles on odo), did it say "Keep Driving".

(not that it said to drive for 50 miles)

A 'normal' regen will not give a message.

Funny thing about those messages, Iíve got almost 25k on my 18 now and Iíve never once seen that message. I know it regens as Iíve noticed the elevated idle and smell at times, but noting on the dash. Odd?

No aftermarket dash monitor yet for me, considering the Banks setup in the future, hopefully you can monitor cycles with their idash unit. Would be nice to be able to do a manual regen before a service!

When I picked up my '18, it had 7 miles on it and 4 hours. I did have 2 regens almost back to back in the first 600 miles (on the drive back home). After that, I regen between 500-600 miles.

I use my EDGE Insight CTS2 to tell me when I'm in regen. Love that feature because I can adjust my route home to allow additional time to complete the regen process.

It didn't hurt it but that was a lot more idle time than what mine had however it only had 7 miles on it when I took delivery.

Outside of using a monitor there are several indications when a regen is taking place. In town you will notice a much higher idle speed when stopped in gear, a distinct smell if the windows are down, and the transmission has a different feel because of the increased idle speed when braking to a stop. If you shut it off you will hear the clinking noises of a very hot exhaust system cooling off. On the highway you will notice a distinct drop in mileage.

You will only get the message if it has tried several times but has been unable to complete a regen because the vehicle isn't spending enough time at sufficient speed to allow the cycle to complete.

Yes youre correct, my bad on the read. I was at 50 miles on the ODO and it said "Keep Driving..." I assumed this is what it should do everytime a regen occurs but apparently that's not true. This is my first Diesel. Thanks for the replies!

Thanks,
Epicenter

I've lost count of the horror storied posted about going in for the "free" oil change, and leaving with dents, bent mirrors, loose filters, loose drainplugs, wrong oil, wrong oil level, stained seats, loose lugnuts .... etc..etc...

The guy doing the "free servicing" is the lowest paid guy on the lot. You really want this guy touching your $60k truck?

If you cant change it yourself, for whatever reason... you need to make it real clear to the service manager BEFORE they touch your truck, that you want one of the line guys, to do it.
