20 lbs either way is not going to be noticeable. You are over thinking this. Your setup is about as close to perfect as you can get.

Thanks. I made a point of going against recommendations by family who camp and got the dually anyway. At this point, I'm glad that I did it - even with the hassles that come along with it.

My pin is about 2 to 3 inches fdw of my axle, I installed it to the manufacturer directions and my tk has a locating hole to start the hitch install. When I scaled I am setting about 200 lbs from steer max , and 1k from drive max

If you know - how much does your steer axle change when your fifth wheel is hooked up vs. when it's not?

If you put some airbags on the truck will that push some weight to the front axle of the truck?
