Norcold 1210 refrigerator

I am boondocking in Colorado in my 2015 31SL and I am running the fridge on propane. At night it gets down in the 30ís and my fridge will not restart and I get a fault no FL. I have to try and restart two to three times and it finally starts running. It may do this a couple times a night. During the day it runs fine. ?????

As I suspected. I looked at the Norcold manual for 1210. Here is what it shows.

Effects of high altitude on propane gas operation.
You may experience reduced cooling performance of the refrigerator.
You may experience burner outages.
To avoid these possible problems, Norcold recommends that you operate the refrigerator on AC when at altitudes higher than 5500 feet above sea level.

I have read the manual. We have been boondocking since 2015 at the same location and have never had a problem. This just stated a couple days ago. We have been here two weeks. Maybe the oriface or the igniter. Ordered new ones today, should get them in a few days.
