Yep, my brother in-law uses a WDH with his F-350 DRW towing his TT.
The Reese 1,200lb WDH you purchased is sized correctly to handle the loaded weights of your TT, even at it's GVWR. Should you upgrade to a heavier TT, the same WDH will in most cases handle the upgrade as well.
Even though the stiffer suspension on your 2500HD truck may not "visibly" react as much as your half ton did when the weight of your TT's tongue was placed on the hitch ball, there will still need to be some weight transfer adjustments. The Reese WDH you purchased can be used with many different TV & TT combinations, it's all in how it's adjusted.
There are cases where a TT's "loaded" tongue weight is low enough that it falls within the TV's limits and the TV's receiver "weight carrying" limits that a WD may not be required, but even in these cases a WDH can provide enhanced handling characteristics.
When you get the opportunity, visit a CAT scale using the link provided in an earlier post as a reference......, the process will also confirm your WDH adjustments.
Your going to love
that 2500HD DMAX/ALLY as a tow vehicle (wish I had the DMAX), but since it's a used TV inspect the receiver hitch for any cracked welds or bent components just to be on the safe side.
