I got the same issue with mine. I think I'll just put on a couple more valves.
I just spray mine with a shot of cooking oil when I shut them down at the end of a cook. You have to shut them down tight as you can by hand. Three or more weeks with rain every week and no issues.
Boy that's an ugly weld. You can tell I didn't prepare the metal well. just sticking to the theme.
