Is there any stickers/info on your hitch? Most have 2 weight ratings, one without a WDH setup and a weight when using a WDH. You are going to have to know who made the receiver and the look up and try and find information on it.
A example from Curts website:
CURT RV hitches are designed to fit a variety of RV styles. With two types to choose from -- an adjustable 3-piece frame-mounted style and a bumper-mounted style -- these hitches are a perfect fit for most RVs. The adjustable hitch design offers 5,000 lbs. of gross trailer weight capacity and 500 lbs. of tongue weight. It can also be used with a weight distribution hitch to bring the capacities up to 6,000 lbs. of GTW and 600 lbs. of TW. RV bumper hitches, on the other hand, allow up to 3,500 lbs. of GTW and have a tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs.
And some info from one of their receivers:
