I've got a Curt, but different hitch. Yours would indicate that it doesn't really matter how much weight you put on the front as long as it's not lower than the rear. Still, based on my observations, your front axle limits are generally closer than the rear and therefore easier to exceed (most of the time). I'd still recommend setting it to unloaded weight (36 in your case ) and go from there.
EDIT: After watching the above video, I think you instructions weren't worded very well. The video states to settle within 1/2" of the original measurements, not front to rear. Your written instructions also state to expect about 1/8" drop in rear for every 100 lbs on average. I'd set the front between 36 - 36 1/2 and call it a day.
