While everyone on the list assumes that AAA is JUST for towing, they
do provide quite a bit of "other" services. Maps (however readable)
is one mentioned. In the territory I live in (Northern California),
THE most valuable service is DMV renewals and the like. Rarely does
one need to stand in line, and if you do, there are frequently nice
chairs (or a couch) to sit in. Still another service was begin able
to get passport pictures at about half the cost of anywhere else (it
was $6.00 for a pair).

Many of these little things DO add up to be quite worthwhile. Take a
look at the glossy "magazine" they produce and visit the office, you
might be surprised.

p.s. No I don't work for them, but I do use the services.

This is very true. I took the defensive driving course offered through AAA.
Members get a discount,(I think it was like $30 or $40,) and got a two point
reduction in points on my license, and a credit on my auto insurance (even
though small amount)
.

If you have a class III and its a weight disturbution hitch it is
capable of 500 lbs max..I wouldn't push this If possible move a few carry
on's that are in the boat over the axle of the trailer....To keep tongue
weight to a minium...I had a 92 explorer also and i only had the 3:27 axle
ratio with the tow package and it towed my 3500lbs bass boat with tandem axle
just fine..Use good synthic oil and keep that coolant system flushed and
clean also change that trans fluid every 25000 if you tow often.. Its good
insurance and it'll do fine........ding
