June 8 to 11 were pretty much travel days. June 8 from Hinton, AB to Ft. St. John. That was a nice drive, I saw a couple of black bears, and a caribou but all were too far away for photos. By the time I got to the campground that night it was apparent that the fridge was not working when on propane gas. Temp had risen to the mid 40s. So I shut it down and had to trash all the food that might have spoiled. June 9 I tried without luck to find any help for the fridge so wound up investing in a cooler that is supposed to keep ice for 5 days. It is the 3rd day and most of the ice has melted, unfortunately not surprising.
June 9 drove north to Ft. Nelson in nearly constant rain, no critters to be seen.Good wifi at the visitor’s center and I was told I could park at the IGA for the night. I was the 2nd rv to stop there and by the next morning there were 7 of us, from large van to truck camper, to a class A. Free is always good
June 10 drive was mostly sunny and an interesting drive with very different scenery than earlier. And the animals were out in abundance. I saw 4 black bears, only got good shots of 2.
Stayed at Watson Lake in an rv park so that I could connect to electricity to see if the fridge would work on that. Yeah! It does, so after some research all indications are that while the propane will ignite and stay lit the flame is not strong enough to heat the coils. Probably the gas jet needs cleaning. Whew! That will be simple.
June 11, got to Whitehorse, YT. Larger town with an RV repair place so Friday they will clean the gas jet for me. 2 nights in a campground with electricity and very limited wifi. But the visitor center has fast free wifi so I will use them. Some very interesting places to see around Whitehorse so I’ll stay busy on the 12th. Will leave town and head north Friday morning right from the RV repair shop. Will be good to have the fridge working again.
