    This is a bit of a long shot, but I will ask here...

    Has anybody in Alaska managed to get either a replacement cooling unit or a whole RV fridge shipped to Alaska? My TT's unit has the telltale yellow powder so I need a new cooling unit, which they sell for about $450 in the Lower 48. I can by a new fridge for $1,600 complete. The problem is NOBODY will ship to Alaska since it has to go ground freight, and that costs like $300 to ship.

    I can't find replacement units in Alaska, but I can buy new units for $2,200.

    If anyone has figured out a way to get a cooling unit up to Alaska, please let me know.

    Thank you!

    I hear it helps to have friends who work in Military logistics up there [;)]. Seriously, I don’t live there, but have worked there enough times to feel your pain.

    Good luck.
