2006 diesel 5.7 no power pulling grade

I have 2006 diesel when I'm towing my 12000 lb fith wheel up a grade it has no power 45mph max up a small grade or a big grade doesn't matter. Any other time powers not a problem. Oh btw had the tranny rebuilt at 27000 miles now have 56000 miles always had the same problem

Are you towing in OD? If so, is it kicking out of OD when you are pulling those hills? If it's not then you should manually take it out while you pull those hills. That's why the button is there and these trannies don't always kickout automatically like they should....
Do you have any gauges? How much boost are you making while pulling those hills?

That happened to me and it ended up being a partially plugged inter cooler.
