There are no heat strips in the Tracer product - only a furnace.

Dropped my iphone in the water so pictures are gone. Sorry.
The trailer worked flawlessly. My daughter caught a nice 17 inch Brook Trout and I caught 20 Brookies.....I will never go camping there again if it is calling for heavy rains. Had to quit fishing by lunch. Floodiing occurred later that afternoon.

You needed to get back to work so you could get some rest!

Good to hear the fishing was alright and to hear everything worked great on the trailer.

Appreciate the feedback. Next time out I will check it out, one thing for sure it was very quiet compared to my Jayco. Of course, now that it's almost May in Texas, I seriously doubt I will be needing a furnace for at least the next 6 months... it gets HOT down here man.
