WDH doesn't change the tongue weight. The tongue will put just as much downward force on the ball with or without WDH. It will transfer some weight off the rear axle to the front axle and trailer axle, but none off the ball. Some manufacturers publish a higher allowable tongue weight if using WDH, but the 2016 Honda say no to WDH.Did anybody suggest otherwise? It would distribute the weight to not overload the rear axle and improve handling overall. Plus it slightly reduces tongue weight as it distributes some of the weight back to the trailer axle.
