Let me know what you think.
Tired after driving home. I just deleted a long post by accident before I finished it.
I am starting over.
OK, Here's how I figured it:
Truck max weight - 5450
Truck unhitched - 4920
Truck hitched no WD - (2480+3000) 5480 - 30 pounds overweight
Truck hitched WD - (2520 +2910) 5440 - 10 pounds under max
Camper Weight - 10,160 - 4920 = 5240
Camper GVWR - 5979 Load available (5979 - 5240) = 739 pounds
Max tongue load 650 pounds
Actual tongue load - 5480 - 4920 = 560 pounds
Load ratio - 560 / 5240 * 100 = 10.7%
So every 100 pounds more you put in the camper with your set up you will add 10.7 pounds to the tongue.
While you could add more weight to the camper, if you do you will need to make sure it does not subtract from the tongue load. You don't want a lighter tongue than you currently have.
A heavier tongue would be desirable, but you are already at your trucks maximum weight.
Your combined weight is just fine.
Loaded as you currently are you are just fine.
Don't mess with anything you could make it worse instead of better.
