Outside rear flat

Just some information. I have a Ford f53 chassis with 235/80/22.5 tires on Alcoa bright wheels and rear inner steel wheels. I left on a 275 mile trip with proper inflation and arrivede at the destination with 35 lbs in the right rear outer. I have Progressive insurance with road service. I called Progressive and my flat was fixed within the hour dismount, repair and mount at no charge to me. Just signed my name and mileage have a nice day. No hassle no problems, thank you Progressive.

Glad to hear they took care of you. Did the tire guy express any concern that maybe the other dual had run too far bearing too much weight (since the other had gone flat) and should be inspected?

Tires were ok no damage, never ran totally flat and it was not hot outside. I do carry an unmounted spare as my coach has a compartment for it.

I'm surprised that there was no charge to you. I have GS road service and they will send someone out to put on my spare tire, but they do not pay for the actual tire repair. I have had this situation before and just paid the guy for the repair part out of my pocket so I didn't have to use the spare.

You will probably get a letter of apology. From Insurance. They will apologize for allowing the repair to go thru, and please pay back the amount owed. We apologize. Pay up today. Let us know if this happens. I know my RS allows only the change of spare only, Anything else is my out of pocket. If new tire must be placed, I have to pay for it too.

I will not be getting a letter of apology when the whole transaction was discussed prior to them sending out a road service company. I even talked to the dispatchers manager at Progressive and was told that there was no out of pocket costs to me. Next I will be reading that my policy will go up on renewal date, And if it does so what it was worth the piece of mind that FULL service cost me $0.

I had a blow out on my coach and Coach Net sent out a service team on Sunday afternoon.

They changed the tire and I signed the service order. NO COST

I tried to tip the service man, but he refused. Along came a severe gust of wind as he was putting up his tools. It blew the tip money into his truck on the seat. IMAGINE THAT !

FWIW... the one and only flat I've ever had was handled by CoachNet. They sent out a guy with a new tire (which I had to purchase) but he also patched the flat tire so I could use it as a spare. No charge.

My extended warranty would have even covered $250 toward the cost of the new tire.... if I had known it at the time and called them first.
