Bad thermocouple? Ruud Model P50-6A

Bad thermocouple? Something else? It's 17 years old, is this a sign of impending failure?

Is this Natural or LP gas?
Is the pilot flame strong or lazy?
What color is the flame?
Does the pilot flame engulf the last 1/3rd of the thermocouple?
Did you add other gas appliances to the supply since original install?
How far from the supply is the heater?
What size gas pipe is used?
Is the flue cap in good condition?
p.s. You can try removing the thermocouple from the gas valve and use a pencil eraser to clean the connection on the gas valve.
