Ruben has raised a good point. These are valid concerns if your trailer is continually dragging, but putting all of that weight on skid wheels and the tongue are concerning, also.
1 thing said is the RV dealer "supposedly" set the hitch up correctly. You need to check that out by doing the fender measurements according to your instruction booklet, or making a couple of trips across some scales. Most dealers set the WDH up, and stand back and say "that looks about right". They have no idea how much the fenders drop.
Too stiff of spring bars could be a problem, as well as distributing too much weight to the front of the TV.
Another way to approach the dragging is to drop the hitch 1 more notch, and let the trailer tongue ride slightly low.
If I were to mount skid wheels, I would mount them as high as possible to where the bumper, jacks, or waste lines don't drag.
