I own of a Traeger 22 Series at a mountain cabin and love it. I am very intrigued by the new Timberline series for use at our main home. One question I can't find answered: are the control panel, its controls and the internal electronics of the Timberline grill protected enough to be operated in a light rain? Are they water resistant for daily storage as well? We don't get much rain in the desert but where the grill would be placed in a large covered outdoor cooking ramada it could be exposed to rain. I understand the precautions on the electrical hookup and I have a weather protected outlet cover where the grill would be plugged in, but I am not sure how moisture resistant the control panel area is. I posted the question to Traeger Support and they came back with a "no rain on the grill, it will void the warranty" answer. I understand their caution but what about the real life experience of these forum members? If the answer is still "no rain" then I'm afraid it is no Timberline for me. Thanks.
