2015 6.7L Burning Smell & Trans Question

After traveling mountain back roads today for about an hour or so, my wife and I noted a burning smell when we got out of the truck. The last little bit of the trip was quite a bit of steep grades and low speeds.

I let the truck run for a few minutes to circulate coolant and noted when walking by the exhaust tips that the exhaust was hotter than normal (I didn't have my infrared thermometer). It didn't indicate it was in regen at the time.

The trans and oil temps were normal the whole trip...but I've noted my trans has had a few hard shifts and slight slips every once in a while recently.

All of the fluids were within fill range and smelled ok.

Wondering if this could just be the high load and low speed contributing to high exhaust temps? Anyone else experience this in the mountains or while pulling/towing at low speed?

Also - anyone else have a slight slip and hard downshifts (mainly 5-6 up shift when cold and 6-5 downshift cold or hot) in this model truck?

Thanks for any feedback.

Sounds like you were in a regen, probs didn't notice the message.

Do a trans relearn if all the fluids are good.

The smell could have been hot brakes

Thanks guys. I think hot brakes and regen seem like the probable cause(s). Knock on wood, it hasn't returned.

I didn't realize these trans are adaptive shifts, so I may give the relearn a shot if it keeps it up.
