As a soon-to-be PC 2350 owners, we're looking for info on roadside assistance insurance. Do any of the members have experience with these programs? Are they useful? Worth the cost? Which ones would members recommend?

I had Camping World policy (with Presidents Club discount) on three different RV's and used it several times - never a complaint - they did what they said they would do.  Can't ask for much more IMO.
My wife mistakenly signed us up with Farmers Insurance when I got the PC and it was 2.5 times as expensive and provided less service, I changed that quickly when I caught it.

We have a '05 2551 and had the misfortune to hit a deer and damage the front of the vehicle..We have Sam's Club roadside assistance and they were real helpful. It happened on a Friday evening and we had to wait a few hours for the tow truck but everything they said in the ad they did. I also have their after warranty on the RV equipment in the event of a breakdown.

At 10:30 pm, with winds picking up and rain coming, we went outside to put up the awning.  The wind caught the door, it slammed and locked.  The car was also locked and all keys were in the RV.  We couldnt call Good Sam for assistance because the cell phone and membership card were also inside the RV.

A good neighbor invited us in and called Good Sam for us. Although Good Sam advertises 24/7 coverage, we got a recording to call back after 8:00 in the morning for assistance.  Finally, the campground owner called a local locksmith and everything worked out okay.

Moral: dont rely on Good Sam after office hours.  Well try another roadside assistance company at renewal time.  Also, we now have a key in a magnetic holder in the propane compartment!

I remember very few of the things that Ive spent money to buy, but I remember all of the places that Ive spent money to see.
