If your not comfortable adjusting your WDH for the first time, I would ask for assistance from a friend that is familiar with a WDH. Another thought would be under loaded TV/TT conditions swing by your RV dealer and have them re-adjust your WDH....., they should do this at no cost. Also, have your dealer provide you with the proper WDH installation/adjustment documents that came with the product, great for future reference.
Referencing the WDH chain links under tension ..., if one presently had five (5) chain links under tension .... going to four (4) chain links under tension would distribute additional
weight off the TV's rear axle to the TV's front suspension and a nominal amount to the TT's axle.
Please Note: Proper adjustment of the WDH spring bars should allow adequate for/aft movement during TV turns so that the spring bars don't bind with the TT's A-frame. In some cases the amount of WDH ball mount tilt has to be re-adjusted as well.
Your correct in referencing chain links "under tension" when referencing a WDH......, the chain links "hanging" serve no weight distribution function, and in the remote event one has two different lengths of chain (has happened) referencing chain links hanging would create problems.
