3000km road trip results

Hey all. I recently returned from a trip up the Alaskan highway (destination Liard hot springs) via central Alberta. I was towing my ridiculous 13ft, single axle Scamper the whole way (terrible idea if anyone knows these roads!).

Truck performed just fine with a mildly loaded trailer. I climbed some pretty steep grades with it, hitting 220ect 230eot temps (was quite nervous about those temps but the fan brought it down good).
I did shat my pants when the turbo inlet boot blew off because the tech didn't clamp it right!

Anywho, 3200km is a testament to my stock engine and I've never been more happier with my 6.0!
But does my consistent highway tow temps of 210ect and 218eot seem a little high? Even when I'm unloaded on the highway I see 206ect 212eot. Perhaps an improper coolant ratio?

Maybe it's something revised in the newest strategy? I'm gonna do a ph test on the coolant too maybe it is the concentrate/water ratio?
