Controling EGT

Quick question on how to control EGT. I understand all the products to help keep them under control but what about while driving. I live in an area that has a few areas with 10% grade over a couple of miles. So my question would be how would you go about lowering your EGT while going up hill? And making sure they don't continue to climb. Hopefully I will be getting a 5th wheel and just want to be as prepared as I can. Thank you for any advise.

Ya I meant should you pull over and let the temps drop try and slow down drop into a lower gear maintaining speed or go up a gear lowering rpms. Sorry never really towed anything with weight before.

You wanna keep boost up, so drop gear gain rpm, and keep boost elevated, low boost will Kause high egt, and you going to slow down climbing that grade anyway
