WA AAA woes

I just moved to WA from CA and bought a 2002 E450 Thomas 5 Window H/C bus. In Ca, I had no problems with my bus being an "RV" and receiving services from AAA.
I came out to start my bus but the battery was dead. In CA, no problem. Call AAA and wait.
In WA, because it's got the accordian side door, it's a "Commercial vehicle" and not covered under AAA WA. PERIOD. End of story.
Transfer to a commercial recovery tow center, $75 later, my bus got jumped and I am good to go.
AAA fails again.....

Former AAA Call center worker here. The problem you are experiencing, and something that most people do not realize, is each state/region is run by a different entity. Each one is basically using the AAA branding, with their own set of rules/pricing. So you end up with situations like your and unfortunate inconsistencies.

Thank you everyone. I will look into those options as I need something just to cover myself.
