Default More power!!!!!!

I have a 02 Dodge with a 5.9 Cummins which I use to tow a 32 ft. fifth wheel trl. The truck is in excellent shape but I have found that traveling out west in the mountains that a little more HP would be nice.
My question is would a Smarty Programmer be helful but would it shorten the life of the engine or transmission?
I get excellent mpg now and overall the general performance is great but it has to work a bit harder in hilly and mountianous country.
Any input on this subject would be appreciated.
