WD hitch adjustment question ??

Got a 26RLS Jay Flight and Ram 2500 TV with Pro Pride hitch. I have been to the CAT scales and know my weights.
When adjusting the WD hitch should I be trying to get to unloaded TV front axle weight or some other percentage of my loaded for bear weight ?
Thanks, Mike

My personal opinion is get it back to the unloaded weight. I do this with a tape measure. Springs have a loaded height and that changes as the load changes. I just measure it before and after.

Your owner's manual should tell you the exact specifications though.
