Corkscrew Vine

One of my Corkscrew Vines (Vigna caracalla) has reached the lower branches on an Oak tree and starting to climb up.
Does anyone know if I will get more flowers if I cut them back, or should I just let them keep growing?
Thanks for any info. This is my first time growing these vines.

Okay, since I didn't get a response on this, I'll just
experiment and see what happens.
I have two (2nd year bought plants) that are getting really tall.
Today I trimmed 4 (1st year plants from seeds).
