Hello Tom. That's the way I understand it as well. The "preferred" method is to let the coach do when it needs it during a normal drive somewhere. From the research I have done (albeit not all Cummins related) a parked regen should only be required if the coach has been doing excessive short trips or if an automatic regen was stopped during the procedure. All this that Russell went through makes me wonder if we will all be doing manual regens now and then (when our DPF light comes on). I must admit, I have not "caught" mine conducting an automatic regen yet over the 1500 or so miles I have driven it since I bought it. -Glenn
