Maxx questions

I've been searching posts alot but still have some questions. I want to tune to help my 6.4's health by no more regens and hopefully being able to run cooler.
In considering the H & S Maxx what tunes would be good for me to use. I don't need the extra power as stock is good for what I use but I'd like a MPG increase. I will be Cat/dpf deleteing. I do tow a V Nose #3500lb GVRW trailer alot on Interstate and local roads. Not fully loaded much depend on jobs. Also I have a Lance truck camper I use once in a while which weigh's 4K. I guess to be safe I could run it in stock settings but am open for tunes for the towing v nose, hauling the Lance, just plain empty highway.
Also how does the Maxx affect the EGR valve and why?

Thanks

Is that hand calculated mpg? If so that is awesome.

Just was curious as most have found after tuning these trucks the mpg computer calculator becomes way off for some reason. My first fill up the computer said i got 19.5ish and it was actually about 12.7 mpg hand calculated.
