Maybe it's the altitude!. Sorry, that was just too easy.

Although my refrig. hasn't given problems at higher altitudes, my water heater has stopped working at 9000'. I was told by my dealer that re-jetting was the solution.

Altitude definitely affects the combustion process on the fridge and the water heater. Turn them on to electric instead while you're up there. Save the propane and they'll work more efficiently.

We had some friends with us in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado last summer. We were at a high elevation and their flames wouldn't work either. They had to us electricity. We did have it at the campground we were in.
