Interstate warranty

We purchased a 2016 Sanibel 3901 with the interstate warranty, told 8 years, bumper to bumper, covers all components and electronics, paid $5000. We were misled. Our 50 inch tv in Livingroom stopped working after a year. Called interstate as it was under warranty. Was told we needed to have a rv repaireman come out at our expense to validate the tv did not work, and then they would have us ship it somewhere to get it fixed. Or replace minus our deductible. There are no repair people for warranty issues within a 200 mile radius. A service call would be $300 plus our deductible of $50 would have cost us $350 for a cheap TV. We live full-time in our unit in one location it is skirted and set up. We bought a new Sony 4k UHD for close to that. We have had so many issues here that were "covered under warranty" but because we are in the middle of nowhere with no service repairman for warranty issues that it doesn't make a difference whether we had the warranty or not.

check the contract

Just bought our Vibe 268RKS. Of course the dealer pitched the Diamond package hard--Over $5k. Shows a one page flyer saying basically everything is covered. So I ask for the contract to read the exclusions--they are numerous and significant. Ask yourself if you placed the price of the extended warranty in savings and drew it down when you had to make repairs would you more likely to be ahead or behind?
