Eccotemp L5 won't stay lit

The heating element on my Eccotemp L5 won't stay lit. I hear it come one and run for 30 seconds or so, and then it shuts off and the water stops heating. Thermocoupling? I figured I'd ask here before I contact Eccotemp tomorrow. I'd guess someone else has had the same problem.

Had mine for a year now.
Works like a charm.
Once the flame is lit it should continue. Propane issue?
When it dies, does it fire the ignition trying to relight?

@hidesertwheelin I had an Ecotemp L5 for a year and got rid of it for that reason. I did get it to work consistently and stay lit at below 5,000 ft elevation. There are a couple of adjustment screws under the cover. You can contact support and they'll send you a diagram and some steps to troubleshoot it.

I got the info from them and will be taking it apart this weekend.
