How can I verify that my remote loads are being applied correctly?

I am applying a remote load to a pad in my assembly.  I have tried using both direct transfer and rigid connection.  I have to use a new coordinate system to get my Forces correct, as the tooling comes in at the engineering CG, which is different than world coordinates.  

Typically I have not had an issue with this, and I've been using Solidworks and Solidworks Simulation since 2005 (back when the simulation side was cosmos.)  

I'm finding in version 2018 SP 5, I'm having issues proving out that the remote loads applied back to the tooling pads are actually divying up the load correctly.  

This is extremely crucial to the customer, and my team, as they are holding very tight tolerances.

 

What can I do to show them that the remote loads are working correctly?  Or am I at a point, where i need to figure out the individual load on the each pad based on distance from CG, etc.?

Thank you for any help you can provide.
