Pin weight, GVWR, Load Range D tires?

Very surprised to see load range D Goodyear Marathon China made tires on my new 2011 321RLTS. Wondering what the engineered pin weight ratio is? Trailer is rated 14500 GVWR. Axles are 6000# 8 bolt hub... Dexters. Dry weight 10575# dry pin weight 2225#. Doing all of the math, to be within legal limits the pin weight has to be above 20%. At best perhaps 500# leeway My bad for not seeing all of this prior to purchase, just really suprised that Jayco would engineer things so close to the limits.
