i did a little digging today and found that there was a TSB 8-25-1, which has been updated to TSB 11-2-2 for this reason. It has had mixed results from what i have been reading. i am going to try to stop by the dealer this week and schedule this work. See below. Hope this helps you.
11-2-2 6.4L DIESEL - WHITE SMOKE IN DAMP WEATHER CONDITIONS WHEN ACCELERATING
Publication Date: February 1, 2011
FORD: 2008-2010 F-Super Duty
This article supersedes TSB 8-25-1 to remove the production build date, update the vehicle model years and Part List.
Some 2008-2010 F-Super Duty 250-550 vehicles equipped with a 6.4L diesel engine may exhibit significant amounts of white smoke from the exhaust pipe while driving in high humidity or rainy conditions at temperatures above 4 °C (40 °F). This smoke only appears during a moderate to full throttle tip-in that is performed after a period of steady state driving.
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.
This procedure only applies if the vehicle meets the following criteria:
Concern is described as significant amounts of white smoke from the exhaust pipe.
White smoke only occurs in high humidity or rainy conditions above 4 °C (40 °F).
White smoke only appears during a moderate to heavy tip-in that is performed after a period of steady state driving (approximately 20 minutes)
No diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) are present.
Concern is not a result of regeneration, a cleaning exhaust filter event.
If all of the criteria above is true, then replace the charge air cooler (CAC) assembly with a new revised part per Workshop Manual, Section 303-12.
Some white smoke may still be present under severe conditions even after the new level CAC has been installed. This is considered a design characteristic of the charge air system and no repair attempts should be made. This concern does not affect the life of the engine or exhaust components.
