RotFix Fail!

I'm just sick. I drilled about 30-40 holes in the floor under my back window and was pretty careful w my 2:1 mixture. Injected a good amount of RotFix and it's been 4 hours and hasn't set. Temperature is now down to 57 but it was 67 when I applied it. I don't not how to remedy the problem if it isn't set tomorrow. I don't suspect there's a fix you folks can offer, I just need to vent to someone. What a mess!
UPDATE: went out ant put a heat gun on it for about a half hour and it seemed to set and show some rigidity. Hopefully it'll cure! Luckily we aren't dropping below freezing tonight. It's 56 @ 9:30pm.

You could put an electric heater inside, turn it on and close the door. You'll either set fire to the trailer, or the RotFix will set. Probably the latter will be what happens.
Good luck. It will set.
I used GitRot on the gunnels of a boat I once owned. Most of it dripped down onto the concrete floor. It set and it's still there today.

Thanks Glenn,
I don't have an electric heater so I'm at the mercy of the product. Literature says application has to be at least 45 degrees so I should be ok. Helps to know you had success. I'll update tomorrow.

Walmart has electric heaters for under $30. Or fire up the propane furnace.

Tragedy Averted

It's 48 degrees out and I just went to check for progress. Soft area is hard as a rock and smell has subsided substantially. SWEET! Guess I'll repair the other soft spot behind the cooler and concentrate on a new axle, wheels and tires.
If I don't watch it, I won't have an excuse not to start making cosmetic repairs on my buddy burro.
Thanks for chiming in, fellas.
