2011 DEF issues need help

I'm 1000 miles from home and I get an engine check engine light, took it to the dealer and the light went out when they started the truck up at the dealership but they were able to pull two codes. P202D and P20E8. Dealer stated that my DEF pump needed replacement, but they don't have the part and its not covered under warranty (truck has 74190 miles). I need to make it back to Alabama can I buy a code reader and keep deleting the code at every stop to prevent the truck from going into the reduced power mode. Right now I have no light and the dealer cleared the codes. Any help would be nice.
Thanks Scott

Made it home only had to clear the codes twice. I really don't understand how Ford gets away with a 50k mile warranty on emissions parts on a 100k drivetrain warranty. Especially when they've already established a TSB for the problem (TSB 11-12-3).

Vehicles built on or before 8/3/2011 may exhibit a malfunction indicator lamp If you get both codes P20E8 & P202D and no other DEF related codes replace reductant pump. These codes are set by a small DEF leak internal to the reductant pump assembly.

Similar problem 2011 6.7 F350 dually 69K miles Truck was/is running fine - Not noticing anything...
CEL came on last night, took to dealer this morning and just got the call... $1,400 estimate Replace reductant pump. They "suggest" replacing sending unit at same time because most of the ones they have done have been back in short order to replace sending unit if it wasn't replaced at same time. $440 pump, $415 sending unit, $600 labor
WTF - why is this not covered under 8/80 emissions system warranty.
I have had more out of pocket repairs on the 6.7 in 69K miles than I did with my 6.0 in 140K miles

that used one is mine. there is a small plastic nipple broken on it and i said screw it and traded the truck in instead of dealing with it. it works fine and i will gladly help a fellow member out if needed.

that labor is hilarious. its 3 little stainless steel bolts that hold the pump on the tanks port. this pump was spraying def everywhere. works fine and you can see the little plastic nipple on top of it... by the way, the truck doesnt have a clue if the def pump is unplugged and runs flawlessly. also, if its not pumpin def, the tank never runs dry

There is an NOx sensor that could set a code. I think it's one of those codes that can limit speed
