We just finished doing the ALCAN Highway in our 2014 27RKWS, putting 7117 miles on it. The only issue was the Dometic 300 toilet, which they shipped a new one to Whitehorse, Yt, and I installed it in about 20 minutes. The other problem was having the GFCI outlet in the bathroom fail, and knock out all the outlets in the trailer. I just replaced the outlet. Other than that, the trailer has had no issues. Our 2009 Suburban made 10.15 MPG, and the average cost of fuel was $4.97 a gallon. The highest price was $7. 26 a gallon, so we bought only as much as we needed. We are very happy with the T.T.

$7.26 a gallon? Why? Where?

Dang. That's $3,500 in fuel alone! How long were you gone?

The $7.26 a gallon gas was a Muncho Lake, BC. It is a long ways from anywhere. The RV park was very nice, but expensive. We were gone for 44 nights.

Tell me about it. It's why we left in 2003.

Ah BC. It's by the liter there not by the gallon. It once was an imperial gallon but the new metric system won them over.

Here we are celebrating the 4th of July weekend and discovered a shower leak. The last time there was a leak like this, Noah needed an ark. Seems the water runs down the shower wall and then seeps somehow behind the sower pan and onto the floor behind the shower pan. I pulled the heater pipe cover and found water laying there. Drain was tight and free of any water. The left side was dry and no signs of water. But the right side of the shower pan (again, inside the pan itself) was soaked. No real damage to the TT yet. It has leaked since day one but I caulked it. Saw it again this morning and it was worse. Anyone have any ideas?
It's going back to the dealer for repair as it seems the whole shower needs to be removed and replaced.

I converted all the liter fill-ups to gallons. That's how I came up with $7.26 a gallon. Most fuels in BC are in the $1.20 to $1.60 a liter.

If anyone is interested , I did a blogspot called The Soare's RV. It pretty much covers the trip.
