RE: Best itinerary for Alaska

OK - The first thing you need to do is quit thinking about Alaska being a destination and begin thinking about planning a voyage. Milepost is a must. Starting in Arizona, think about things to see and stops to make in the lower 48 as well. For instance, much of the drive will be mountainous so we planned ours by starting in New Mexico and driving the Rockies from there to where you drive out of them 3,000 miles to the north when you hit the Yukon. Used a different route back than the way up so we could see even more of BC and western US national parks etc. Plan on no more than 250 to 300 miles per day and that leaves some time for stopping along the way since many sites are really take only an hour or two then time to move on. Twelve weeks is a good time frame for this type of journey. We have done it twice, in 2013 and 2019. Denali starts going into fall coloration the last week in August and you can drive the fall coloration line all the way back to the US. The northern birch trees are just as beautiful as our aspens. Do plan on heading home from Fairbanks by Sept. 1 as many campgrounds that can handle a rig your size are seasonal and start closing down mid September. Have fun planning and enjoy the trip (voyage).

RE: Residential refrigerator door shelf failures

Thank you for the tip on the JB Quick. Never used that product before. I am thinking about shaping a wooden peg to insert into the door insulation as well as inside the plastic tab as more substantial reinforcement. We will see how that works.

Residential refrigerator door shelf failures

We have a 3 year old Whirlpool 10 cu ft fridge that keeps having the tabs which are molded into the door to hold the door shelf fail as we drive down the road. The door is made with a SS outer metal skin and a 1/32 molded inner liner with the door shelf tabs. The door is then blown with a foam insulation. The molded tabs are supposed to be the anchor points for the clear plastic door shelves. After only 9 months, and 9,000 miles the first tab broke and the Newmar dealer arranged to have Whirlpool replace the door (only fix possible) under warranty. Due to Covid and the fact that they won't make a door until one is ordered, the replacement door took 6 months to get and 30 minutes to install. Last weekend after 15 more months and another 9,000 miles the same tab ripped out again. No warranty help this time from Whirlpool or Newmar. Got a price check today on a replacement door and it confirmed what I suspected and the cost of the door at $575 is more than the cost of the entire refrigerator. It is a very poor design to put that type of unreinforced tab on a door, but it probably works on a fixed unit in an apartment, but not in a rolling earthquake like an RV. Anyone else had this type of a problem and if so, what did you do to resolve it?
