Tracer LE, Heated Tanks?

Team,
I canít find my holding tank heater switches... I have the 2021 Tracer LE 260BHSLE. Weíve owned it since June and have taken quite a few trips.

Original information was that this unit had heated tanks and underbelly. It does have the insulated underbelly but I canít find the heated tank switch. The manuals are no help, apologize if this is a repeat but I canít find a clear answer.

PS, is getting to about 25/28 at night so Iím just running the heat while it sits in my drive.

Connected to water heater?

This is just the water heater, I believe itís optional electric heat or gas.

The Tracer has an enclosed underbelly and heats the holding tanks by diverted furnace heat. So no electrically heated tanks.

Hey Russ, we just bought the same TT. How has it handled traveling and camping thus far? Do you have the brown or the gray interior? We bought ours in April and still trying to find an available weekend to take the family out.

We have the grey I think. She tows really well. The brakes coupled with my stock toyota controller work good. I scope out gas stations ahead of time to see if I have enough clearance but, even at 30í, I can get out of some weird spots I get myself into.

The weight isnít bad, 5100 dry I think. Add 400 lbs of water and it still travels well. Youíll be happy, sheís been a lot of fun for us!
