Default Love my truck but bad mileage

Hey guys, I'm new to the diesel world. I just bought my 2010 Dodge Ram 3500 DRW with only 6000 miles on it a week and a half ago. I love the truck. It gets in the 20s mpg unloaded, and it it pulls my 19000 lbs 5th wheel RV with no problem. I was surprised that I could use the cruise control while hauling.

My question is on the LAW side of this. I live in Texas, so no emissions testing yet, but have the yearly inspection. I was told before with my gas vehicles, that catalytic convertors had to be on it to pass inspection. Does this not go for the diesels? And what about you guys that have emissions testing, will it still pass?

Thanks in advance with any input or direction to another post with the info.
