Sorry about the delay in responding.

Even with a weight distribution hitch, the tongue weight is still 480 lbs, so the hitch needs to be strong enough for this weight, but the weight distribution hitch "distributes" the weight to the front TV axle and the trailer axle(s). In my case the TV rear axle weight went from 4,030 lbs to 3,730 lbs, a 300 lb reduction.

Thanks Dan,
I think you are correct, I would ask my dealer for confirmation as well.
