A WD hitch when properly adjusted should transfer (distribute) 40% to 50% of the trailer's tongue weight from the rear axle of the tow vehicle to the front and trailer axles of the rig.
Don't even consider a cheap weight-distributing (WD) hitch you can buy on-line for less than $500. Insist on a Reese Strait-Line, or an Equalizer, or a Husky Centerline. Note that both Reese and Husky also sell cheap WD hitches, so insist on a Reese Strait-Line or a Husky Centerline, not the less expensive WD hitches sold by Reese or Husky. Then with a good WD hitch, if you cannot adjust the hitch to level out the rig, you are severely overloaded and shouldn't be on the road with other traffic.
