What weight of gear oil

Its time to change the gear oil in my Differentials. I am going to put Mag-Hytec Diff covers on both front and Rear Differentials. The question is what kind and weight of gear oil to use? I tow a 10,000 LBS fifth wheel trailer and do most of my towing in southern Nevada and Utah where the summer temp is over 110 degrees.
