Steve, I'm not necessarily expecting to hear about any damage.
The question arose when considering whether one could, without causing bar damage, use bars rated for less than the tongue weight to achieve the 50% front axle load restoration now specified by some TV manufacturers.
Evidence of bar damage could be a permanent deformation such as a slight curvature of the bar when unloaded.
Or, a broken bar would be an extreme example of damage.
