High Deltas EOT and ECT with H&S

Alright, so lately I have seen around 8* to 10* deltas while driving my normal 75 mph commuite to work. As oppsosed to my normal 6* I always see. Well this weekend we towed our fifth wheel up to the the Texas Hill country an dI saw on avaerage around 16* to 20* deltas when towing the trailer. Average air temp was 88* to 91*. I was seeing 199* ECT and 216* to 220* EOT. Is this normail when towing large trailer in the heat? Trailer weighs around 9000lbs to 10,000lbs. 30' in length. What could be causing this and how can I fix it? Also not sure this has anything to do with it but my tranny feels like the TC is slipping in 1st-4th before my TC locks up. May have to look into that. Nothing major just doesnt seem like it is holding real tight.
All mods in sig.

thanks in advance

Trans tune, locks in 4th at 45mph, and locks straight into 5th at 55mph.

Just popped the hood a minute ago and it looks like I blew some coolant out the bottle it has a few white spots around it. Looks like I lost about 3/4" of coolant in the bottle. Im guessing thats not good huh?

Nope thats not good. Is your egr deleted? If so it will probably end up being head gaskets.

Putting your first and second posts together, it sounds like you are about to have a bad day.

Sorry.

Ok, well if I did pop my head gaskets how will I know? Will it continue to puke out the degas bottle? or will coolant just vanish without leaking anywhere? I dont want to take it in and lay down a bunch of cash before I know for sure. Also are these temps here bad as far as highway towing?
Average air temp was 88* to 91*. I was seeing 199* ECT and 216* to 220* EOT.
This was constant for about a 2-1/2 hour drive?

As the pressure in the cooling system rises it will continue to puke coolant. Your temps are not bad at all but that doesnt mean its not your head gaskets. You can either rig up a way to check the pressure in the coolant system or buy a block check to see if combustion gasses are in your coolant.

Any chance it could have puked and not neccesarily popped the gaskets? Does that ever happen?

I guess it could if the coolant bottle was overfull. Also you could replace the degas bottle cap and see if that may be the problem. You never know.

The bottle was about 1" over the full line, I got a new bottle because I had a crack in my old one and they over filled it a few weeks back. So that means I have a new cap on it as well. I will have to keep an eye on it and see. If i did pop a gasket am I going to ruing anything driving it? Just keep an eye on the coolant level?
