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.
