2010 F350 DPF Problem

Ok so now my new truck has 750miles on her, and as far as I can tell its only gone into regen once. From what I've read it should've done it at least twice. But twice now I've smelled burnt rubber inside the cab, which seems to come out when the heat is on, and as soon as I shut the heat off it stops. I saw the "Cleaning Exhaust Filter" come up on the info center today, just as the truck hit 600miles, it flashed on for about 3-5 secs and then went off, is it supposed to do that? I have no idea if the filter is all cleaned out or not, I don't want to have to bring it in to the dealer this early. Anyone got a clue on this, and whether the smell is related or a completely separate issue?

Never smelled anything when mine goes into regen. Mine also averages around once a tank now that its got a few miles on it, but seemed to do it less frequently and quicker when it was really new. Must have took awhile for it to build up in there or something.

As for the smell, it's a new truck is my only guess. Maybe just burning off the new glues and plastics. Hopefully anyways.

Just thought about it, mines an 09 and never had the heater turned on yet. Will turn it on later and see what I smell.

when mine would go into regen and i would park it will regening or immediately after the regen i could smell burned rubber and after some investigating i found that the rubber isolators that hold the exhaust at the dpf were giving off the smell. now these are not black like the normal exhaust hangers and i suspect that it is a higher temperature rubber. but that is now in my past. i no longer get the smell with the 5" downpipe back exhaust.
