Posting photos of both door stickers might help responders. Also a photo of the placard on the hitch receiver.

The tongue weight will need to be 10 to 15% of the weight of the trailer.

Placing weight at the rear of the trailer is a recipe for unstable towing.

I appreciate the response. I could not attach my excessively large photos, and made calculations that the weight will be roughly 500 pounds left in tongue weight after all filled up for camping with the family and pets, etc. I can tow 500lbs max for tongue and 5,000lbs max for tow. My GVWR is 6,000lbs. My payload is 1,158lbs.
Now I am curious if this TV would work or if something different is necessary. The trips were majority over highways and such to campgrounds around the Midwest for now. Nothing major for elevation change.
