Hayward heater problem

I have a Hayward 100,000 btu propane heater on an above ground pool.
It has worked perfect since we put it on 3 yrs ago. just the other day it started to kick the GFI outlet after running for a couple of hours. When you reset it & plug it back in it sounds fine & acts fine but kicks the outlet after time. The propane tank has 50% on the gauge(200 gal tank). If just the filter(doughboy) is plugged in it runs fine. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks, Mike

Hi racefan, question, is the heater the only thing you have plugged into the outlet ? as the heater if it is a late model electronic only has a transformer to power up, the circulation pump needs to run in order for the heater to work, perhaps they both share the same circuit ? or maby the gfci has gotten wet or maby time to change it . also check for loose wires / maby the wiring has gotten wet where it connects inside the heater.
