If your scaled "loaded" tongue weight is in fact 1,200lbs and reflects your normal loading, I would move up to a 1,200lb rated WDH minimum. I don't know about EazLift WDH's, but with some WDH manufactures all you have to do is change-out the spring bars (trunnion style bars only, not round bars).
Back to your RV dealer setup man's comment......: The 1,000lbs is actually the individual spring bar's "load" capability (tension), meaning it's ability to produce a force (thru leverage) to distribute weight. The two spring bars together have the capability to generate a downward force of 2,000lbs at the TT ball coupler....., but that's only a small part of the physics behind a WDH.
