You say appears to have a heat strip. Did you actually see the strip or just a heat position on the control panel?. The heat strip is usually and add-on in units with the control already installed. That being said, I added one to my last TT. It is a poor design at best ( safety wise) and is more like a chill remover as the wattage is similar to a standalone ceramic heater. If you do not have the element installed, I suggest you get a ceramic heater. Much less money and much safer.
About a year after I installed the one in my last TT it was recalled for safety reasons.
