High Oil Temp??

I'm just curious. When should I be alarmed at the oil temp. Couple weekends ago pulling 18k on I-15 through Nevada it got pretty hot. Tranny dropped to 4th doing 70mph pulling a grade and I was just watching the oil temp go up, and up, and up. Hit 242 degrees right as I crested the top. All the other gauges were fine. Just wondering if anybody has seen these kinds of temps or not.

You can see the coolant temp right above it in the picture, along with the trans temp. For some reason Ford decided not to have the ability to see actual coolant temp alongside oil temp. But the gauge was reading normal. So you guys think I should bring it in? It immediately dropped back to 205 when I got over the top. I don't know if I should worry or not.

If it dosen't do it again then I wouldn't worry about it, but I wouldn't make a habbit of it.

Running Rotella 15W-40. This was by no means a "small" trailer, it also wasn't at it maximum GCWR. I'll let you all know what the dealer tells me.

We saw 223 when pulling our 13,000lb fifth wheel up a long 6% grade in PA but not that high.
