Good Deal Rich,
I was gonna say I could check out the one in A.J. for you but I already know Dave P's coach is in good shape. You definitely got a good one there.
As for asking questions enroute, carry your cellphone and have a number to call somebody in the group who can get the info and call you back.

Hmm, this might be a good plan.



With over 1.5 million successful roadside rescues, we are the leaders in RV roadside
assistance. If your RV needs towing, we offer unlimited distance towing! That means we'll
pay 100% of your towing fees and we'll deliver your RV to the nearest professional service
center, even if it's hundreds of miles away! And you won't pay a penny out of pocket.

Towing an RV is expensive — did you know the average RV tow costs over $250.00? And
most auto roadside assistance programs will only cover a fraction of that, if anything at all.

We, at Good Sam ERS, think differently. We know how stressful it is to suffer a tire blowout
or any other roadside mishap and while we can't control what happens on the road, we can
promise to make the obstacles a little less stressful.




Join Good Sam ERS for less than 25¢ a day!

Good Sam RV ERS Benefits:

Unlimited Distance Towing to the Nearest Professional Service Center
Protection for all Household Vehicles
Flat tire service

No extra charge for your spouse and children
Emergency fuel and fluid delivery
Lost Key/ Lockout service
Roadside Mechanical Repairs
$1,200 Trip Interruption

Mike you are correct. Good Sam provides excellent service and when I had their card I was always well looked after. In my opinion there are only two services that can and will provide what large rvs need when towing. Coach Net is the other one and my current assistance provider. The only reason I changed over from GS was because I received a form letter from GS saying that I had used their service too many times over a period of 18 months or so. The form letter intimated that GS was not a repair service and that my rv maintenance was my responsibility. All my calls to GS were for flat tires and had nothing to do with maintenance. Each flat was due to puncture and one broken valve stem. I decided to give them a rest and switched over to Coach Net. I'm sure I'd get a similiar letter from Coach Net if I had the same tire failures. Such is the business model I'm sure. I'm glad we have two good services to rely on.

Thanks ya'all...I'm on it. Tomorrow I'm getting my insurance in place and getting an emergency roadside assistance plan set up too. Thanks Ed and Ernie for the advice on making a list of WOG members to call just case, thats being done now... My other half feels a little better knowing that I folks I can call if I have an issue coming back.

Tips:

Go down hills slowly until you are comfortable with the handling and brakes

If equipped with one: I would recommend you know how to use the retarder and how to watch transmission temperatures.

Great advice and it reminded me of my first trips. I'd like to add that you should not be overly concerned with offending the faster moving traffic. As Brad says, go at your comfort speed and let the jack rabbits sit behind you until they have a spot to pass.
