Stories like these point to if you are able to first help yourself before calling for help.

IE; Limp to a better area/campground/safer place to wait
Do some minor repairs to get to a better area.

Have the tools necessary to change tires.

Do some research on local mobile/non mobile repair that may be better and cheaper. The last thing you want to do is sit by the road for 6 hours when a repair shop is 1.5 miles away.

And the main thing.

If you are calling for roadside assistance know you will be waiting for many hours.

We have had Good Sam's for 5 years and used them 3 times. Great response time each time. Probably best deal you can get through Camping World.

Just go to GS forum and see the complaints. Ask GS if they will get your RV home if you have a medical issue and your wife can't drive or tow the RV.

What exactly do you get with these plans? Are they just a call center dispatch? When a roadside service tech shows up, are the repairs covered? Tire change, tow? What does the plan cover vs what you have to pay for? I've read their websites and its not clear to me. These companies are good a disguising what their service includes?

FMCA's website states:

Mobile Tire Service
If a spare tire is not available, we will dispatch a mobile tire service company who will mount a like tire. Mobile tire service is not available in all areas. Towing to the nearest qualified tire center will be provided if mobile tire service is not available. You will be responsible for all parts and labor fees.

The last sentence in all their "services" states that you are responsible for all cost. Appears that the only thing they do is dispatch someone to you.

GS Roadside will not pay for any parts thats are needed, but will bring them to you, or tow to nearest repair facility. The mobile tech will charge labor on installation of parts except a spare tire.
They towed my fw and truck once, and that alone saved 4 years of membership
GS Travel Assist (a different plan) will take care of getting your rv home, and more, due to an emergency.
