Default Love my truck but bad mileage

Well I finally bought a 2011 crew cab dually with diesel, 6 speed auto, 3.73 gears. I absolutely love the truck...with one exception. I am having a hardtime dealing with the fuel mileage. I have 182000 miles on my 2003 quad cab short bed 3500 with diesel, 6 speed manual and 3.73 gears and I usually get 20-22 MPG on it. My new one only gets about 14 empty and 9 pulling my 14000 lb camper. I didn't expect it to get in the 20's but I need better that 9-14. Does anyone know what i can do to help this out? I am not looking for any hp or torque gains, just mileage.
