Regardless of TW you need to move more weight to the front axle.

As I read your truck your front axle is rated for 3750 pounds and the rear axle for 4800 pounds. Per your weight ticket the truck is carrying 3900 pounds and the rear is carrying 5320 pounds. So your front axle is carrying 150 pounds more than its rating. The rear axle is carrying 510 pounds more than its rating. Your weight on the rear axle with no WDH is way over the capacity of the rear axle by 920 pounds. So no change to the WDH will be able to correct this.

That sticker is not for the op's truck, just an example of what op should post...

Using the right numbers it does seem like the tong is very heavy for a TT. With no bars you have 1520 # of weight on the truck and with the bars you have 1400 # of weight on the truck. But a TT normally places about 10% of its weight on the tong in your case that would be 786# but you have almost twice that weight. Your truck is fine with this weight, your hitch if only 1400# is right at or just above its tong capacity. I would try moving some heavy items to behind the TT wheels if I could to lessen the tong weight.

And that will effectively move some weight back to the front axle.

I forgot, I had a half tank of fresh water also. This is a toy hauler and without bikes in the back is tounge heavy. We're heading to Colorado for two weeks without much in the toy hauler part. I need to figure out what to put back there...
