After spending a week trying to fill our propane tank — and finally succeeding! — it turns out we have a leak on our grill hose.
Crayton tested everything last night using the method called for in the manual (dish soap/water mixture on the hoses). Sure enough, bubbles appeared near one of the metal fittings.
EEEEEEEEEGGGGGGH. [That's me cursing the day the grill was born.]
Since we’re still under warranty, he’s going to call customer service in the U.S. and see if they can send us a replacement part. Meanwhile, the little grill sits under our lona and waits. Probably snickering at us.
