Thanks, folks.

While cleaning the fuel air tube, I found the igniter gap was set at 1/16” instead of 1/8”. Simple adjustment. Simple solution.

How much power do you need?

What are folks who use portable solar finding as far as what's enough? Is the 100 watt suitcase enough to keep batteries charged? Is the 200 watt Renogy suitcase too much?
