Unhappy Just saying hello

Just joined this forum. We live in Ocala Florida. Bought a Thor Freedom Elite 29E in November 2017. Found a screw in my right front tire. Called Good Sam Motor Club for assistance. They said okay but did I have a good spare. I checked and well as you can guess there is no spare....They couldn't help us. HAPPY RVING from Camping World. They want for tire holder and spare with rim, cost of $1255. Will never buy anything from them again. Checking around for other quotes. Any advice ??? Bill

So much for their advertised "road side assistance"!

So the Motor Club won't cover the COST of the replacement tire - but they certainly should bring it to you and change it (the tire change labor should be covered.) I'd call them and have a chat about it.
Many MHs do not come with a spare. Some have added it.

My Extended Service (also through them) does add the coverage for the replacement tire cost - as long as there is serviceable tread left on the tire (serviceable tread shouldn't be an issue for most of us... tread wear is rarely the reason for replacement on a MH.)

Hi Bill, I always carry a "tire plugging kit" around $12.00 any auto store. This is a very Simple permanent repair. Sounds intimidating but very easy and fast 15 min fix. You do Not have to take tire off or use a jack. Safe Travels Rev,
