Norcold Problems at High Altitude

Hello, We have a new motor home with a 1200 series Norcold 4 Door Refrigerator / Freezer. I had heard, or read somewhere that there may be a problem dry camping (running on gas) at high altitude 6000 to 9000 feet. Apparently the flame will shut down causing an error code.
Has anyone with a late model Norcold had any problems running the unit on propane at high altitude?
We spend a week in the summer dry camping at 7200 feet and would like to know if we are in for a problem. Our last motor home had a Dometic and it worked fine at high altitude on gas.
Thank you,
Jim

I have a spot in the National Forest at 7200' where I have been dry camping for twelve years, with 3 different motorhomes. All had Norcolds and all kept contents cold and the flame never went out. My latest being a Norcold 1200.
