I once had a flat on one of the rear duals that I discovered on my Class C while it was sitting in my back yard just before heading out on a trip.

I called our traveling friends to wait up for us and then called my AAA ERS. They said that "they didn't service flats on dual tire sets" !!!!! (huuuuhhhhh?)

I canceled AAA (after being with them for decades) and never looked back. I now have an ERS that is all about RV road service -> Coach-Net. (They're comprehensive - so they also function as an ERS provider for our pickup and sedan.)

I am 63 years old and not made of muscle, yet I have only a little trouble managing our 2007 E350 steel wheeled tires. I weighed one on our bathroom scale which came to 83 pounds. I replaced 4 of the 6 steel wheels with Alcoa alloy wheels which weigh 20 pounds less making them 63 pounds each.

Our 6 ton bottle jack that came with the rig is easy to manage but hard to pump up without adding an 18" gas pipe. I once thought of upgrading it with a 12 ton jack until I seen the size and weight of it. It is way more than our 24 foot long E350 rig requires.

this is because you didn't have AAA-RV which covers it but cost most then just AAA
