Furnace at 10,000 feet

We have a 2017 Montana 3661RL. We are camping/working at a campground at 10,00 feet in Colorado and our furnace will not come on. It worked fine during our trip here but not now. I've been told the problem is, at this altitude I need to increase the propane pressure. I'm sure this adjustment is located at the regulator located next to the port side propane tank. Has anyone made this adjustment? Is it something I can do? Procedures to make this adjustment is appreciated. I perform most of the maintenance on the camper so I'm somewhat mechanically inclined. Thanks for your input.

Three,

I had a high altitude issue with my water heater that was adjustable at the water heater but no issue with heater. Would recommend turning off both your gas bottles and then opening the valves again very slowly. Sometimes the regulator senses a leak when the valves are opened quickly and restricts flow.

AZ Traveler...I did as you said and so far so good. The other day the furnace wouldn't even come on. Thanks for the tip, I will remember this one!
