Personally, after reading THIS article about what Marcus Lemonis and his wife had pulled on this Florida RV dealer, Gigi Stetler, I will NEVER spend anymore money in their stores.

In the past I would never let their service department touch my coach nor would I sign up for any of the "service" contracts.

Others may have a different opinion of Marcus Lemonis but I think both him and his wife are scum.

Cummins came out with the L10 engine back in the late 80s. They must have downsized it...just like groceries...you now get less for more.

I just got towed off the Florida turnpike when the fuel pump broke. Less than a mile to the next exit and a truck shop willing to take a look at it the next morning cost me $450. Their inability to correctly troubleshoot cost me another $400 in parts and labor. The 26 mile tow to Cummins after the holiday weekend cost me another $650. We don't even want to talk about the repair bill.

The 50 ton wrecker cost over a $500,000 and cannot leave the yard unless it makes at least $300 per hour. Time is money. Mileage has little to do with it. All I can say is, make sure the tow truck you call knows how to hook up to a diesel pusher without causing serious damage.

I was reimbursed $1100 for both tows by Nationwide within 72 hours of my phone-in claim. My $850 annual premium includes $40 for towing reimbursement up to $2000...regardless of the reason. If an accident occurred, I would also have received compensation for trip interruption...which includes lodging, meals and transportation.

I had a water pump die (quite politely at a rest stop just before a windy narrow mountainous road). Cost to me to tow the 140 miles to facility was zero. Cost to AAA was about $2300. Tow truck had to come from 2 hours away, hour to take out driveline and hook up, 2.5 hours to tow, another hour to unhook and drop off and then time home...It adds up quickly. Tow company did a great job and I covered the cost of my AAA for then next 10+ years.
