Thursday, June 23, Capital Towing sent a big tow truck to Teslin to rescue the two RV Gypsies and towed the RV from Teslin to Whitehorse. The two RV Gypsies rode in their car and followed behind the big tow truck.

Lee found a nice ad in the yellow pages so they had their RV towed to New North Truck and Equipment at 91317C Alaska Highway in Whitehorse which said they specialize in servicing all Freightliner equipment and that they are a full-service repair shop, with fast and reliable repair service and work on motorhomes and more. But after the tow truck dropped them off it did not appear that it was a very professional place. The outside of the building was nice, but the inside was a very unorganized disaster. But the owner said not to worry, he would have the RV fixed in one day. WRONG! On Friday June 24th, they did an oil change and that was about it. Then they were closed for the week-end. Lee tried to pay the overtime charges to get the mechanic to work on the week-end, but that did not happen.

To make a long story short, New North Truck and Equipment could not get the "Stop Engine" light to go off and said they didn't know what was wrong. On June 29, Lee paid New North Truck Equipment what he owed, even though they did nothing, and drove the RV to another place, Inland at 227 Range Road in Whitehorse (The RV could be driven a very short distance). They could not fix The RV either, but still charged for labor. What a waste of a few thousand dollars.

Anyway the two RV Gypsies had to find a hotel for the night but hotels were full. They finally got the last available room at Days Inn, 2288 Second Avenue in Whitehorse. The hotel was an older hotel and okay, not great, but better than no hotel. There was no swimming pool, no nice lobby to hang out in, no nice restaurant only a cafe grill. The room was adequate, with a bed, couch, small computer desk, TV, dresser, closet, microwave and refrigerator, and of course a bathroom, shower, coffee pot. It did not have a safe or even a TV guide, but it did have Wi-Fi and free parking. It was also a pet friendly hotel. It was a clean room, but not the most comfortable hotel. Had to sit on the bed to watch TV. Somebody in the room directly above the room that the two RV Gypsies were in, kept walking back-and-forth in his room a lot, even late at night, and his footsteps could be heard and the ceiling creaked. As shown below, the view from their window at Days Inn was not very nice. The carpet in the hallway did not appear to be very clean. However, there was a small, dry sauna near the room of the two RV Gypsies which Karen did use a few times, and she always had it to herself.

The two RV Gypsies had a bit of cartoon fun outside the entrance to the Days Inn.

While driving around Whitehorse, the two RV Gypsies noticed a very interesting piece of art in somebody's yard.
