It sounds like he's concerned with the engine speed while moving, but the foot off the gas. It isn't going below 1100 RPM's while moving, foot off the gas (30mph).
I don't think engine RPM's would go much below that while in motion. With the foot off the gas, while moving, I'd think it would shift down, using engine breaking a little bit. Granted, it would have to be a long distance of no foot on the pedal before you slow the truck significantly without using brakes.
I'm wondering if he's in SP mode. I usually have to use braking a little, as there aren't many long runs where I can basically coast to a speed as slow as 30mph.
If I drive on a cold engine, it's a different story. From a stop, I can let off the brake pedal and get some decent speed going, without applying any gas. Like others have said, the engine will rev higher no matter what until it's completely warmed up. Usually takes me a couple/few miles at least, before things get normal.
