Towing and EGT temps

Today I towed my 12,000 lb. 5th wheel trailer 150 miles on fairly level roads and was getting EGT temps of 950 - 1050 at 12 - 15 boost doing 60 - 65 mph. The outside temp was 78 degrees. Are these temps normal running stock? I'm going to travel 800 miles this summer pulling the 5th wheel and need to know if towing with EGT's around 1,000 degrees is safe fon an extended period of time.

looks good. I would not consistently sustain temps over 1,200*. But if you need to get on it I would not pass 1,500*.
