I would welcome feedback from those of you who have or have had extended warranty plans and how they work for you.
Thanks in advance,
Same boat here - had some NASTY surprises on our TT and did not want the same "experiences" with the "Retirement Casa."
When we bought our 5er this year, we looked long and hard at the extended warranty. It looks tough to beat. $50 deductible at our dealer, $100 nationwide - ANY Forest River dealer and it covers fore to aft and all in between.
Nice to know we have a warranty for the next 6 years that will cover anything that will go wrong (tires too!) with our unit.
Here is a good example: Slide motor goes out. Repair/Replace + Labor (@ $129/HR
) is about $1,200.00. Policy is costing us $1,795.00.
Refer, A/C, black/gray/Galley tank cracks, electrics, and all the other things in a modern RV...my problem is going to be hoping I can find a extended warranty to cover the unit when THIS extended warranty runs out!
