  • How do you change tires

    Do you call on a large van a service to help you?

    OMG.......does this post bring back memories..........I had a flat tire and called AAA. They sent out one truck and it couldn't lift my van's back end to change a rear tire. So they called a second truck, again no go. Then they called a huge wrecker and was able to change it. Now AAA offers and extended coverage for RV's, so if I ever need their services again, they will send out the huge wrecker. By-the-way, it took 3 hours to get my tire changed. Not only did it take time to get 3 wreckers to my van, but then the tire was "melted" on the axle so they had to take a 2x4 to pry off the tire rim from the axle. I was lucky that the flat tire took place in a quiet street vs the interstate with cars going 70 mph. I also have my tires rotated every time I get my oil changed so they will never be "melted" to the axle.

    Happy going for AAA- RV coverage

      We call a tow service to change the tire on a freeway. If it's on a residential street, I do it myself if I can get to the location in a timely manner. I always have a floor jack, stands, blanket to lay on, gloves.

        Same.

        Worth noting we've had no flats since upgrading to a dually.
