Seams like you would still need to fix it regardless where you break down. The repair shop would still take your foreign money, so....

Full time since Nov 2012 RVM#41 Gary and Marian Hill 2001 Monaco Dynasty Jack 38' 370 hp ....If it ain't broke I can still fix it.

None to my knowledge. I think the major RV emergency road services cover all of North America, but Mexico coverage requires you to pay then and file for re-embursment.

This seems to be a weird question to the hundreds of thousand
Canadian snowbirds that head south for the winter.

We have to deal with this every trip.

No Particular problem, they will take your Greenbacks and fix the problem. There are few RVs in Canada because there are fewer people and most like within the first 100 miles of the border.
They are at least as honest and friendly as those in the US. In Quebec, you may have some language issues, but most can speak English but don't like to admit it. Actually, come to think of it, I have had more language trouble in the US.

We go into Canada several times a year because DW has family there. The biggest PITA is customs at Detroit. If it were less than 120+ miles to go to another crossing, I would.

They have no tow trucks ... they will send out a guy with no matching upper and lower teeth on a large John Deere tractor ... he will drag your rig to the nearest junk yard ... then a very large bulldozer will push it to the top of heap of other disabled units ...

The rats will enjoy the leftover food from you fridge ... and the raccoons will be tipsy from your abandoned booze.

You forgot to mention the service center is an igloo
run by a couple of polar bears.
