OK
I think if I read your sticker right the axles are rated at 4000 lb
On the side of my tire were two different load specs. Single axle and dual. My dual rating was 1610 lb per tire and was well under the 4k axle rating. So if both the tires and the axles are rated below 8k how can they post a GVWR over 8k??
Tongue weight?? I don't get it. There are other guys in the forum with some really good experience with these questions. I'm sure they'll chime in and help us out.

No question then, I got GYPED!
1820 if single axle, 1610 dual. Just checked again to be sure.
With the excessive wear I'm seeing and some of the places I'm headed to this summer I'd rather be safe than sorry. Marathon L/R D for me

Tongue weight. My axles are rated at 7k each, so 14k rating for the 2 axles. Gross weight 15,500 for the whole fifth wheel. Axles are around 6k each on the scales, pin weight at 2680.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

How Old are these tires,. I have the same wheels , Are your Tires Nitro filled. And if so I have the same. What I have noticed with my nitro filled in cooler temps they seem low. But after about a mile down the road. I notice there are back up to normal. They're not suppose to flux to much. But was told they will when sittin in cooler weather. But will go back to normal once the tire gets a little heat in them.

I have a 2013 and these are the original tires..just about a year old. I don't think I have Nitro in them...at least I know I didn't put it in. I doubt the factory or dealer would put it in when for the heck of it. What's the cost of putting Nitro in them?

Not worth the effort. Nitrogen is good for racecars and airplanes,

p.s. if you have green valve stem caps, they came from the factory with nitrogen. Just a sales gimmick IMO.

yes Most of the campers coming in have nitro in them, Mines a 2014 and came with it in it. But Old Coot right there only good for race cars and airplanes really don't make that big of a diffrence in camper tires.. But I figured I leave it in until I need to change it. But yes if you got green valvecaps then you got nitro in them ..

Well you are going to have to find a scale where you can measure weight on each tire. That will tell you for sure.
