Welcome to the Jayco forums.
You didn't mention what kind of TV you have, and I'm not sure where the 2,900lb empty weight came from (CAT scale??). Is the 6,300lb your actual specified RGAWR?
Since you are in the do-diligence part of the process I would run your TV across a CAT scale under simulated "loaded" conditions to confirm your TV and axle weights to your TV's specified weight limits, this way you are working with real numbers.
Just thinking out loud..........,,
2,340lb dry pin, 10,525lb UVW, 14,500lb GVWR
Worst condition: 14,500lb loaded FW @ 20% = 2,900lb loaded pin weight plus couple 100lbs for the hitch.
2,170lb dry pin, 9,280lb UVW, 11,900lb GVWR
Worst condition: 11,900lb loaded FW @ 20% = 2,380lb loaded pin weight plus couple 100lbs for the hitch.
Of course we all load our trailers differently, so you could be looking at lower loaded weights..., but as mentioned both the TV's GVWR and RGAWR are the targeted weight limits to stay within.
