I agree - the engine did NOT sound healthy at all.

It works like a self-cleaning oven if you think about it.

I have over 21000 miles on my 08 Cummins, has not been into Regen cycle. My engine book says you get 2 warning lights on your dash during the Regen cycle, one is to notify you are in the Regen cycle, the other is a "High Exhaust Temperature" warning. Book says up to 1200 degree exhaust temps can be experienced. Don't get to close to anything you might just scorch the heck out of it.

Don't idle with DPF

We've learned the hard way a few times not to idle a coach with a DPF for very long. We used to routinely start all our motorhomes every week and idle them for an hour or so to make sure the batteries were charged. One day we had to have one towed to Cummins because we couldn't get it to move. That's when we found out you can't idle the new engines for long or they'll fill up with soot and shut down.

It's happened more than once, as it's hard to make sure everyone knows this. New lot porter, new sales person, etc. don't know this info unless we remember to tell them. This year we bought an expensive diagnostic machine from Freightliner that allows us to reset the coach so it can be moved and regen. I'm no expert on this, I just know we solved our problem. It's difficult to get the word out--especially to those who bought from an individual.

How about high idle (1200 rpm)? I use high idle if 2-3 minutes or more, like building up air or such. Just wondering.

IF I remember correctly the Cummins Operators Manual says not to idle longer than 5 minutes.
