Kudos to Coach-net

I read all the post about which service to use and I chose Coach-net. I just signed up last Tuesday and as luck (or Murphy's Law) would have it I had a break down yesterday on the way to a weekend camping trip. My camper started slowing down and stalling out. I pulled off the road and into a parking lot. I called Coach-net and got a call back from a mechanic. 2 choices, get a roadside mechanic out or a tow. You only get one choice, I was close to an Auto-zone so opted to see if I could fix it myself since I carry an OBD reader with me. Spent the whole day messing around with it and was able to at least drive it slowly down to the auto parts store. After several failed attempts to fix it I called Coach-Net back and opted for the tow. They came out the next morning, auto-zone let me spend the night in their lot. They towed my unit to my mechanic, 60 miles away. They followed up with me several times to make sure I was ok, that a wrecker was on the way and if there was anything else I needed. If I had to make one complaint it would be the wrecker policy of disconnecting the driveshaft before the tow but they will not hook it back up.

It would be nice if the tow driver replaced the driveshaft, but I guess they are tow people, not mechanics.

If they refused to show up and tow until a mechanic removed the driveshaft, that actually sounds inconvenient but reasonable.

We have had good results with Coach Net too!

The issue was not so much the drive shaft, as a mechanic myself, I had a problem putting it back together. The pin bearings fell out and it would not go back together right. What does someone do if they have to have someone come in and do it. I got it back together ok after some work but I feel for those that dont have that ability.....
