Thanks for the help. One less thing to worry about as I head down the highway.

So, going by your weight figures, the total weight(Gross combined weight) is 12640. And, if you subtract the actual weight of your uncoupled tow vehicle(6080) then subtracting that from GCW is 6560 lbs., which would be weight of trailer and tongue weight combined. 6560 minus 6080(TV weight) would be approximate actual tongue weight(900lbs) on tow vehicle. Is this correct way to figure the additional weight applied to the payload ratings of the tow vehicle by the trailer?

Sorry, should have checked my post before submitting. I should have said The total trailer weight(6560) minus the original trailer axle only weight(5660) would be a 900lb. tongue weight.
