I emailed my insurance broker who I have my RV insurance and coach-net with he has not heard of this rumor but will look into it.
I agree with Bob.

Actually my dealer suggested I look at the Good Sam policy when I balked on the price of his.....

He did say Coach.net is writing coverage through another named company BUT with less items covered at a higher rate....

Good Sam is a alternative Ernest, but give Garfield a call and see what she has to say.

I received a letter as well but it seemed to be only about roadside assistance and nothing about extended warranty. Perhaps they are dumping the warranty side of the business?

What's next?....
I bought my FR3 30DS last June. When I did, I purchased the 5 year extended warrantee through Coach-Net.
Just last month I received an offer for The Coach-Net towing and roadside assistance... I signed up for the Premier package for one year....

Now they may be going out of business?

I hope I never need them but hope they are there when I do...

I just got this email from them promoting a new service called ACCESS...wonder if they are phasing out of extended warranty for this type of thing? Looks pretty good for 20 bucks.

Anyway for everyone except Ernest lol who has coach-net road side this is what my agent said.

"It is a new program Coach-Net has available, but was not meant to be sent to current members. Your email address was probably obtained from some 3rd party….having to do with RV’s and the broadcast emails were sent.

"It is a different type of program and does not replace the membership you now have. In this program, you pay $20 per year to have access to the dispatching service….but you pay the service provider. If the tow bill is $900….you pay it.

I don’t personally care for this program, but it is an option. I think it would be a better program for autos, but with the high cost of towing on an RV….it just doesn’t make sense to me."

As for extended warranty I am still working on that answer.

I asked why??? Was told it's just not available... I asked if it was due to the age of the coach (2008) or to the mileage (44K)... Again I was told "I couldn't buy it" In addition, she became very rude... I thanked her and hung up.

I called the RV dealer where I purchased the coach and the coverage and when I mentioned Coach.net he said "Oh yeah - they're going belly up!!!" He told me that they had started "excluding" more things than they were covering while raising their rates... Said they are selling under a different name now but this dealer said they no longer worked with them because of extreme customer dissatisfaction....

So I guess I'll need to look elsewhere for coverage in September.... Dealer offered one for three yrs for $7,400.00!!!!! Passed on that one....

Ernest I just heard from my agent this is what he said

I heard from my guy at Coach-Net and the program is not being discontinued….unfortunate rumor being sent around by what appears to be a disgruntled dealer or someone.
