new cardinal to me

Hi my name is John and am the proud owner of a 2011 3450 rl cardinal. Love the unit has some quirks but all in all a nice unit.
I know i should put this somewhere else but couldnt figure out where.
Question i have is under the rear are two brackets that would appear to be for a bumper or a hitch. I would like to put a hitch to tow a small trailer on. Is the what i can use or is the load rating no enough. Tongue weight will be about 190 pounds and toe weight appr 2200.

Thanks

John
