RE: macerator stopped working

Arvie1, Happy to see that things are working for you. Can't wait till spring to get everything fixed and get on the road again.

RE: macerator stopped working

Arvie1, Sounds like a nightmare. So sorry you had to go through that. I was reading somewhere where someone had the mascerator removed and another system put in. I am going to look into it in the spring. I suspect that our tank valves are damaged too. Not looking forward to this reapair.

RE: macerator stopped working

We had that kind of thing happen on our trip to NY. One of the campgrounds had a honey wagon. He decided to try to vaccuum it out and it worked. We then filled it half way with water until the next campground and found it worked a lot better. We did have to replace it due to some damage that happened later and found out that it had been wired incorrectly at the factory.

RE: Class B folks, how far North and South?

Alaska to NY, NH, MA. Planned to go south but had some problems and had to cut that part of the trip out. The van was the perfect way to travel. Much better than our Class A.

Free Immunizations to Tourists

I don't know if you have heard about this, but Alaska is planning to offer free immunizations to tourists. News article

RE: Evacuation Insurance

We are lower 48 U.S. residents looking to travel by RV to Alaska starting May 2022. This is planned to be a slow pleasure trip including driving to the artic ocean. I’m interested if folks have secured evacuation insurance to offset evacuation costs in the event of an accident that would require an evacuation. Have you purchased evacuation insurance and from what company? Have you ever had to use evacuation insurance and what was your experience? For medical evacuation insurance we purchase insurance from LifeMed. If I remember correctly it costs $49. There is another group from whom you can purchase also but I don't remember the name or the cost. I believe it costs about $200. There are places here in AK where it would take an ambulance more than an hour to get to you (I worked EMS here for a while). It would be one of these groups coming to take care of you. You might want to consider renting/purchasing a Sat phone too.

RE: Resuming Rving... ideas dealing with Covid.

The State of Alaska is offering free immunizations for tourists. This is to support tourism in the state. Check the news article here.

RE: Resuming Rving... ideas dealing with Covid.

Cracks me up seeing people driving in their cars alone with masks on. The dimwits don't seem to understand that these cloth masks really on provide a modicum of protection for others around the mask wearer. The dishrag over your nose and mouth does ZERO to keep you from inhaling the virus. Other than wearing masks when entering a public area (store etc), and working from home still, my routine and actions have been largely unchanged. We still go out to eat with friends of ours on the weekend, we still go RVing. I have sanitizer with me I use after pumping gas and after being in the restaurant. But, other than that, life is pretty much unaffected. Mike I can't understand why it it of any concern if someone is wearing a mask in another vehicle. You have no idea why they are doing so. I did last winter when we had -24 degree F. I did when I rented a car. I did when I drove someone's car to have it repaired. Perhaps they are ill and don't want to risk contamination of their vehicle. Instead of mocking them, perhaps showing a little concern for other individuals would make more sense. To be so concerned about such a thing is so useless.

RE: Resuming Rving... ideas dealing with Covid.

I read your messages earlier tonight, and as I was checking out some of my other interests I came across this video. I have been following this COVID series since it started and found it very helpful and informative. I hope it can answer some questions for you. Some information for traveling during COVID.

RE: Resuming Rving... ideas dealing with Covid.

I'll start by addressing "immunity". I'm really not sure immunity from this virus can be accomplished. Many people have contracted it numerous times. Maybe, over time, we can build anti-bodies to ward it off, but, for the time being..... The vaccine is only to reduce the effects of the virus. It does not contain the virus itself. Lastly, i, like millions of others, want my back to normal. I have received both doses of the Phizer vaccine. I am now willing to venture beyond my doorstep. Same here. We had our immunizations. However, a friend of the family who lives in another state is on his second bout of COVID. He and his wife had it about 6 months ago. They had their immunizations and about 2 weeks after the second shot went camping and dined in a restaurant or two. He came down with it, and she is showing symptoms. He is having a some of those "male" problems still from the first episode and is worse now from what his son tells us. I was all set to resume my normal life (depending on what you might perceive as normal), but I am going to remain cautious. Last year, we travelled in state. I doubt if we could have travelled in our camper through Canada. We found the campgrounds crowded, people not social distancing or wearing masks. I think it was worse than during full tourist season in other years. We intend to travel the state again, doing another area of Alaska. We will still social distance and probably cook our own food, wear masks, and thank goodness we don't have to use public restrooms. Being older, and my DH with disabilities we don't feel we can do otherwise until there is a little more safety in public places. Alaska is apparently open to tourism this year. I hope that people realize that if they do become ill while they are here that our resources for care is limited. This may also be the case in other areas where you might travel. Check on the hospital status, the number of cases, and decide where it is safest to travel. Hopefully the summer will see a fall in the caseloads and we can all breathe easier and enjoy some beautiful scenery and friendly company.
