Oil leak under extreme conditions

I have a 2000 7.3 liter. While pulling my 5th wheel up a steep winding dirt road a severe oil leak appeared. After letting the truck sit over night I started it up to see where it was leaking from, no leak! Could I have built up to much oil pressure under these conditions? Is there a pressure relief valve that could have opened. I pulled the trailer home (200 miles) and the truck never leaked another drop...Anyone?
