AAA RV Plus Did Good Too

We were staying at a small KOA in Fancy Gap, Va. Had a senior moment and left the set of keys I always carry inside the rig when I went to shower. Wife went to walk the dogs and must have hit the latch lock lever, locking us out.
Luckily she had her cell.
This was on a Sat evening, 6:30. Called AAA. 30 minutes later truck pulls up, operator out and in 2 minutes he was done. No paperwork to sign, and the guy couldn't have been nicer. Gave him a big tip with much gratatude and thanks.
Also have the GS roadside as a backup, but AAA has always come thru.
I have since hidden a key to prevent another "senior moment".

We use AAA as well. Always respond quickly and get the job done in a very friendly manner.

Just used them tonight to change a blown tire on the truck. Signed up last fall and this was the first use. DH was alone and with COPD and about 110 % humidity, it would not have been fun at all to change the tire. Worth every penny.

Just be aware that AAA will not move two vehicles. If your tow vehicle dies on the road, AAA will tow it but not the trailer.

If you have RV Plus which I think they call it AAA Premier now they claim they will tow the trailer pulled by the covered vehicle as well. That is one of the reasons that we choose that plan. If we broke down with the horse trailer behind our vehicle it couldn't be just left on the side of the road. Copied from their site

"AAA Premier

The most elite, comprehensive travel and roadside assistance benefit package offers one 200-mile tow for extra protection. AAA Premier is a must for recreational vehicle owners and those on the road extensively traveling through our great states. It extends AAA benefits to RV, motor homes, trailers (recreation, boat, tent, horse), pickups with campers, fifth-wheel trailers and motorcycles."

My truck has broken down twice on long trips with a camper. A tongue tow and now a fifth wheel. I am looking into which service is best. AAA, Good Sam, or Coach-net. AAA seemed the most expensive but undecided for now.

I have been an AAA member for 49 years.

Last year on Labor Day I was a long way from home pulling my 25' boat with my Cadillac truck. A wheel bearing went out on boat trailer (could see smoke in review mirror) while I was on the interstate and I had to pull of in a somewhat undesirable area. AAA sent out a huge flat bed hauler along with a tow truck and additional help. Both the truck and boat were put on the hauler.


Another time my truck broke down while pulling my 36 foot Cougar High Country trailer. AAA put the truck on a small flat bed hauler and used the hauler to tow the trailer to my house, then the truck to the dealer for repair.

I have always ensured my cars, motorhomes, trailers, boats, homes etc., with AAA. Has given me peace of mind when my wife or daughters are on the road by themselves.
