You may never see the light, it does it on its own. The light means you will need to complete the regen soon or just drive for an extended period and it will take care of itself. Normally the light will come on only if you typically drive short distances.

Rather then worrying about the light, you need to know what to do when it does come on and not be in a bind like David. I believe that I gave enough info. on what to do.

I-RV,

Thanks for all your help today. As someone else asked...it should do it on its on, but like today the lights were coming on and I was loosing power wishing 15 minutes. Down to 45mph max speed. The mechanic plugged in his computer and initiated the regen. Ran perfect afterwards! For the future, I will definitely attend the freight liner course! I've heard only good things about it. Safely mad it to stone mountain GA. Thanks for all your help today! Nothing like being stranded on the side of the road with cars flying by and not knowing how to fix your problem.

V/R,
David

I am sorry that I did not get you the instructions for the regen on yesterday morning. I had the instructions from the Freightliner class at home in a binder and I thereby would have not known what to do, either. Those instructions are now going onboard.

I was unable to include the total ten page instructions in a 4mb pdf file. I guess that is too large. Does anyone know how I can post the regen instructions.

I-RV,

No worries. I appreciate all your help. Thankfully I had all my manuals, was able to diagnose the problem and then called cummins south. They quoted $1500-2,000 for the roadside repair. Thankfully, I was only two hours from home and have a great friend that's a mechanic. After he arrived on scene the regen only took 70 minutes and then I was on my way. Spent quite a bit of time on the side of the road, but thankfully it wasn't worse. I'll be signing up for the freight liner class sometime this year. Thanks again!

-David

Wayne - I attended Camp Freightliner, a couple years ago at Gaffney, SC. This class was for Freightliner chassis with a variety of engines and with MH owners with an assortment of makes. The instructor did differentiate differences for each of us and we were giver all the course material covered in a large binder. The regen ten pages were in the binder. I will try to get it posted somehow.

I understand you received a wealth of information but if I can help and suggest since we are dealing with Berkshire here only a small portion would pertain to that regen. I guess to much info could be dangerous. Look in your operation manual that came with your unit and copy that for starters. Since the DPF started in 2007 I would think regen instructions have not changed much. I know what you posted is the same for my 2015 XL so there appears to be a lot of redundancy.
Hope this helps.

Wayne, I'm sorry that you feel that way; I am only trying to be helpful. I do not agree with your statement "I guess to much info could be dangerous." I have not disparaged the operations manual. The ten pages that I could not send are all of mainly pictorial content. I think that we are all adults that can filter the material.

I meant no disrespect to your post I was trying to help you by finding a way to post less info that does not pertain to any model on this forum. We all me included can become confused if to much info so I was only suggesting to lessen it and at the same time make it easier for you to post.
