I hit the CAT scales and here's my results. See any thing I could change?

So I hit the scales the other day while taking the trailer to be serviced. This is all our gear in the trailer but no family (+220lbs) and no dogs or crates (+240lbs) in the truck. I know that's not the optimal way to weigh but it was what it was. Anything I could do different? Copy of CAT Scale Calc-1.pdf

How does that set-up tow? I am thinking it looks pretty good. Just maybe the WD hitch could be adjusted to transfer a little more weight. 180lbs seems kinda on the light side.

Tows good, running a Recurve R6. I'd like to add a little more but the head is adjusted to the max angle. Just adjusted it to the max before I took it to the scales. I'm running the 1000lb bars that have a max 1200lbs tongue weight.

Im wondering if the stiff front end of the F250 just doesn't show the return of weight. Being sprung for a diesel and having a gas engine my front end isn't as heavy as it could be.
