Smile propane appliances and high altitude

taking my 2013 Jayco Swift travel trailer from 3000 ft to 7000 ft. I have read about propane issues at high altitudes. do I need to adjust something?

We had no issues last summer at ~7,000ft. Nothing needed adjusting.

We live at 4,200ft and regularly travel to 400ft each year - We also travel and camp at 8,000 - 9,000 ft with no issues.

Now we do have to adjust the cooking time when baking cornbread in the oven - that's all.

My fridge wouldn't light. Had to adjust the valve and found a point where it would. This was about 7800ft I believe. Furnace and stove and water heater worked fine.

Same here, except we're ~4500ft at home, and have gone all the way up to 10.5K. The Honda generators didn't have the greatest output, but we don't need AC at that elevation.

We also live at 4200 feet and camp at higher elevations. I have never had any propane issues. I have had 4 camp trailers since 1997. Jayco is number four. When we were kids we camped in a 1967 or 68 17' Shasta. I do not remember Dad or his friend (who worked for Cal Pac Ut bought by Avista) say anything about propane issues because of high altitudes. After I typed this I see how old these posts are, still may help someone.
