Anyone else have Traeger T-stat issues

I have a Traeger lil tex smoker with the 180 degree t-stat.  I'm having problems with the temp flux and being able to get a low temp.  Even on the smoke setting which is below 180 I cant get much lower than about 200.  I've called the customer service and they told me about the adjustment to the right of the digital display which I now have set at 2 but doesn't seem to help.  My question is to all the Traeger guys/gals is how constant can you hold your temp (mine fluctuates +/-60 degrees)? And what is the lowest  you can have a constant temp, I would like to do jerky and salmon but whenever I've tried it ends up cooking instead of drying.  This is in no way a flame on Traeger, just trying to see if it is mine or everyones does this same thing.  Thanks for your help.  Keep on smoking!
