After that we were able to reset the codes. Just got back from a 60 trip to fill LP tank. All seem to be good.

I now need to figure how to do a manual regen now & then without the scanner.

Thanks for all the suggestions

In 208 there was a manual regen button under the dash on the right hand side of the stearing column. Don't know if they still include it.

Just be careful doing a parked regen, the exhaust gets HOT. Cummins reccommendation is parked on gravel or concrete, asphalt won't handle the heat.

Russell, glad you figured it out. I also would have thought about the DEF system first. I apparently left my cap off all winter during storage and was afraid that the dehydrated DEF would cause an issue in the system, but no problems so far. Nice to have this resource. I didn't check the forum today, but Karen alerted me to your problem since we have identical coaches. Hope all stays well.

This is true. That exhaust is way hot. The scanner told us the same gravel it concrete.

The owners manual suggest that to help with resetting DEF codes --fill DEF container full.

I will look for a picture. But apparently it is a white small plug at the base of the steering column.

Ya. I've located it I think. It is snapped onto the steering column right beside the round plug that you plug the scanner into. There is a second scanner plug at the back of the coach just inside the rear grills.

We are heading out for a short road trip. 700 to 800 mile. When I get back home I do another manual regen. By unplugging that switch. I report back as to if it works or not?

That assuming I don't have to do it on the trip!!!

Reading everything I have now. It says the coach should give you a check engine. Then possibly a red engine! The first think I realized was an alarm went off and I had both check engine and red engine lights on dash. I went maybe 1/2 mile to stop sign. Motor shut down at that point. But would start back and run for maybe a mile then shut completely down again. So I just took it back home 6 mile.

I thought that if a regen was needed and you were driving along that it would automatically go into regen and that you should keep driving while it did the regen. This happened to me on my '08 and I read in the manual that it is better for the regen to happen while you were driving and that you should keep driving and maintain your speed while it does the regen.

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

Motor shuts off

On mine there was no regen light. My coach had been in barn for 60 or so days. Got it out drove it 6 mile and check engine & stop engine light at same time. Then shut down!! So ya it supposed to regen on it own mine did not !! I can guarantee you my coach was going no place without a manual regen. So much for the automatic one!!

My thought is that a manual regen will not hurt anything.

Thanks Russell. Nope, manual regen won't hurt anything at all (unless you're parked in a wheat field). Just kind of wish I didn't have to worry about potentially getting stuck somewhere having to do one.

If I understand the manual regen process, it will only allow you to do so if the DPF is full and requires a regen.
