Is there some way I can get a jump start if I'm not a member of AAA?
Will AAA jump start cars for non-members? I'm driving cross-country but my car battery died when I was camping. I'm nowhere near civilization, although I do get a phone signal.

“You can usually call roadside assistance through your car insurance company by adding it to your policy. It might take 24 hours to take effect.
However, you can also call a roadside assistance company. Even if you’re not a member, they’ll give you a jump. You’ll just have to pay non-member rates.
The next time you go on a cross-country trip, just make sure to add roadside assistance to your car insurance or become a AAA member.”

Is there a way to get money from a tow company if they essentially total my car?
"What should I do if a tow company denies damages they did to my car? I called my insurance company to get a tow when my car wouldn't start due to a starter problem. My spouse picked me up to take me to the repair shop. When the tow truck finally arrived, my heart sank. They didn't use a flatbed to haul my all-wheel-drive car, securing only two wheels instead. As a result, the drivetrain is ruined. Now the tow company denies that it happened. They've offered me half the value of my car to settle."
