    It plugs directly into the board, so not exposed. But probably a bad connection, unless it is a board problem (bad solder joint, hairline crack, etc. I will ask him when it comes out in spring,...

    No clue what it is worth, but I could google it. Any fair price is better than what I am getting for it sitting in the garage. Can the stuff be shipped without a hassle?

    propane vs. natural gas

    See a lot of threads here pertaining to this.. But exactly why is propane harder on equipment than natural gas? Never lived in the city, been on propane my whole life, nearly 50 years.
