I have Roadside assistance and also carry a spare tire (with rim) a 12 ton bottle jack, and appropriate sockets with long handles, also impact gun (battery).
also practiced in my driveway (not the same as the interstate)
About 10 years ago we broke down at La Veta Pass, CO, bad cell reception, took about 5 calls to get through and had to climb about 50 feet up the embankment. Roadside took over 2 hours, Engine started right up, the cause was vapor lock on a coachman motorhome with a ford 460 engine.
So now I call roadside 1st, if they will be longer then I like I will change it myself.
If you use the levelers to lift the motorhome I would also adds blocks in case they fail
