Olympian wave 6 turns itself off

I just took my first trip after installing a wave 6 heater, and I am very impressed except for one problem: It won't keep running on the low setting. It just turs itself off after a few minutes. The med and high settings work great. Has anybody else had this problem?

Heck, I'm boondocking and I wish I had one!
I'd just keep it on HIGH

I'm wondering if it would be a regulator problem. Low propane pressure causing it to sputter on low, but working OK on higher flow rates.
Just a thought while waiting for a more informed opinion.

Do you feel light headed or lethargic when this happens? They will shut off automatically if the oxygen concentration drops below 16%.

I bet it is low gas pressure/flow. Not enough to keep the thermocouple activated. Or a weak thermocouple?
