Spare wheel or not?
Recently upgraded my Nationwide account to Flexplus which gives breakdown cover through Britannia Rescue.
Under section E it states:-
"For all vehicles, caravans or trailers and motorhomes, if appropriate you must always carry a legal and serviceable spare wheel or a manufacturer supplied or approved emergency tyre inflation kit or equipment and keys for any tyre security devices"
So on that basis if your motorhome came with a spare wheel and tyre, you would be obliged to carry it unless the manufacturer approved the 'gunge' kit in its place.
I have a spare in my motorhome garage reasonably accessible and have tried changing wheels at home OK apart from the Fiat jack being almost at it's height limit for removing the rears.
I also carry a small bottle jack but never been out the box.
It won't be long until a wee while now.
