You’re cruising along on the open road, the wind is in your hair, the radio up, and the excitement of your destination is running through you. Nothing could ruin this feeling. Or could it? Out of nowhere you hear your tire pressure monitors going off. When you pull over, you discover you have a flat tire on your RV, and what’s worse, whatever caused it seems to have bent the rim. Now what? You throw on your spare and head to the nearest repair shop with the sinking feeling that it’s going to cost you and arm and a leg to get this repaired. That sinking feeling can be avoided with the Tire Wheel & Protection Plan! This plan will ensure that you'll never have to dip into your travel budget to pay for repairs!
Manufacturer warranties offer very limited coverage on tires and wheels, if any at all. Typically, these warranties only cover “manufacturer defects,” which means they’ll pay to fix your wheels if the damage was caused due to a factory defect or poor worksmanship. With that comes the burden of proving that your mishap occurred due to faulty construction or materials. With the Tire & Wheel Road Hazard Protection Plan, you’re covered from damage sustained from those unexpected mishaps we all encounter on the road. This can be the muffler left behind from the person in front of you, a deep pothole, or a nice sharp piece of wood just waiting to take a bite out of your tire or dent your rims. The best part about this program is that it will also cover the wheels and tires on your tow vehicle, as long as you’re towing your RV when the damage happened! This coverage will also reimburse you for any charges you incur due to a flat, such as towing services, patching or replacing the tire, and even mounting, balancing, and taxes when applicable. If there’s damage to the rim itself, they will pay to have it repaired, or will cover the cost to replace if it is beyond repair!
How The Plan Works
When you have an issue due to a road hazard (which is defined as anything in the road that’s not supposed to be there), just call 1.800.338.2680 for help. They will help you facilitate everything so you can get back on the road! After the repairs are complete, simply submit the receipts directly to the National Safe Drivers Club (no need to go through the dealership, cutting out the middle man) and they will reimburse you within 3-5 business days. It’s as simple as that!
Depending on the type and size of the tire and rim, the cost for these can reach well over $600 per wheel! If you have more than one wheel that’s affected, that cost can really put a damper on your travel budget. With this coverage, you’ll be reimbursed for it and on your way again!
Length And Cost Of Coverage
Lakeshore RV offers this coverage for only $399, which will last 7 years for new RVs and 3 years for used RVs. That is a pretty good deal considering you could be looking to pay over $600 per wheel if there’s serious damage. This protection lasts well past the manufacturer's warranty, and the plan covers much more than the manufacturer will cover. You just can’t go wrong with traveling with peace of mind! It's just one more reason why Lakeshore is the #1 RV dealer in West Michigan!
