More Frequent Regens

So I have rolled 10k miles and my regens are getting more frequent. I towed my boat for almost 1k miles recently and had just 2 regens during that haul but when nothing is hooked up they are getting more frequent. The Edge Insight is great for giving info but too much info keeps me thinking too much..... Anyone else experiencing the same?

Not that I have any information it your issue, but I also have a dashboss and watch my DPF soot levels like a hawk. I would probably be better of if I didn't know honestly.

I'm at 18k and it seems like mine regens almost e every time I drive it. Thought it was from too many around town trips and it just wasn't completing the regen but took a road trip up to see the in laws and its still doing it.

When you are towing it will do a passive regen. You will never know that it is doing this, not even with a CTS. I towed 22k# for 1400 miles one time and it only regened once and the dpf soot level stayed really really low. When I would go through a town it would come up a little bit and when back in the country it would go back down on its own. As long as your EGT's are above 572 it will do a passive regen.

Junk Edge chip ruined(clogged) my DPF on my 08 so i then ditched it for the spartan tuner /DPF delete and never looked back. Did the same on my 2011 but with H&S . And will do the same on my 2014. Any tune over stock will produce more soot equaling more regens. If it can keep up.

All I have is the Edge Insight. Not running any tunes on the truck. Just a passive display reader.
