I think most folks worry way too much about this regen process.
We are now in Regen 2.0. It works much better than the first Diesel Particulate Filters that we saw on the 2008-2010 engines. In fact most drives of a 6.7L will not even know when it goes into a regen. There is no real noise, power loss to tatletale on the regen.
The computers will take care off it. If you get the "DRIVE TO CLEAN" message Often, then you might look at how you are driving and see if you could change your routine to get better regens.
I'm a builder, I make 20 stops a day. Run over to the first project, stop by the bank, stop by the plumbing supply, back to the job site. over to the second job site. next by the lumber yard. Stop for lunch, back to the jobsite. Ran by the house and hook up a trailer and haul a skid loader to a job, After work hook up the horse trailer and head for the nearest trail head.
Over the past 12 years, I' ve put about 400,000 miles on my pick ups driving with all kinds of short trips.
