How/where did you see flames? Inside the trailer (the hwh should probably be sealed in some sort of compartment)? Standing outside the vent and saw it ignite? Dry camping won't have anything to do...

What do you carry in the Excursion? Tools/gear/toys/bbq etc.? You are probably overloaded. The trailer weighs 10,500 gvw; estimate a 1260 tongue weight. That against a 1512 payload leaves you...

What is going on the trailer that weighs 3500lbs.? And, is the trailer rated to carry that much? I ask because an RV has different towing characteristics than a flat bed utility trailer. Weights...
