Hi there - I apologize in advance for my lack of intricate knowledge about my element, all I know is I have had it 12 years and have never tired of it. I have a daughter who needs to be able to tow a small enclosed trailer ( I am getting the weight) and I want to know if the element can handle it. I read the thread about the light connection being in a different place. Anyone who can share their experience would be great. Thanks!
