Dodge 2500 tire pressure

My truck has two tire pressure settings light load and heavy load. Right now I have it on light load 45 lbs. question is I am taking it to the dealer for some work and was wondering if I need to increase the pressure for the short ride. My trailer has a tongue weight of around 800 lbs.

Is your white knuckle drive, but if it was me I'd pump it up.
