RPM sweet spot for pulling RV up a grade

I am a new owner of a GC Jeep Diesel. My prior diesel experience has been with lower RPM engines that have a smaller power curve. I just returned from pulling our RV over Mt. Hood and it appeared the the "sweet spot" was 2100 - 2600 RPM.

I would like to hear from those that have more experience than my 3,000 miles.

Yes, maybe 2400 to 2600. There's usually a power curve chart available to Google.
