I am right at 700 lbs. Next thing I am going to do is get to the scales.
No reason for the brackets to be set different...unfortunately not a good sign that the hitch is set properly. The tongue weight of 700 lb is with the camper loaded for camping?
With a listed dry weight of 5773 lb, your camper could be as much as 7000 lbs ready to camp. You should shoot for a tongue weight 850 to 900 lb. You may have to shift some heavy gear to the front pass-through or under bed storage. If you have payload capacity to use, tongue weight is your best friend in terms of sway control.
