My dealer told me about the second year warranty and also had the form all filled out with all the info neatly typed in and said all I need to do is send in a check with in ten days and it would be covered . They never even mentioned and after market warranty.

Great dealership.

In my opinion they should all be that way.

I agree, at least for me.

But I don't want to be disrespectful to those who opt for aftermarket warranties knowing about the FR option. It's when someone buys one not knowing (because they aren't told) about the much cheaper (and shorter) factory option that chaps me! Hopefully, threads like this and others will inform folks so they can make the choice thats right for them.

Where do u go for warranty?

So let's say we get the 2nd year warranty on our new Flagstaff 627d tent trailer and then we need to fix something. Where do we take it? Our dealer? We are in Seattle area. Do we have to go to a FR factory, cause if so I am pretty sure they are far away.
Thx! I am still learning all this stuff!
Happy camper!

The second year warranty works the same as the first. Just take it to the dealer.

Just answered my own question.. Haha!
Found this info :
You are covered by the 1-year Manufacturer's Warranty regardless of where you buy. This warranty is good for any defects in materials and workmanship caused by Forest River. There are over 2400 Authorized Forest River Service Centers in the U.S. and Canada that perform warranty service on your new Forest River RV.

You can get your New Forest River RV serviced at an Authorized Forest River Service Center for both warranty and non-warranty work, regardless of what any competing dealer tells you!

If you can't find an Authorized Forest River Service Center, call us toll-free (U.S. 888-417-8299) or (Canada 513-863-7000) and one of our friendly customer service representatives will take your information and locate the nearest Authorized new Service Center for you.

Glad I found out about the 2nd year warranty on this forum. Dealer never even gave me the paper. And glad I sent in the money even way after the 10 days. My 2014 Silverback has been nothing but trouble. So far the problems are all Dometic things. Toilet, frig and now A/C. Most other things we have fixed our selves. Took over a year to get a new frig that never worked right from the 1st trip out. Wish there was a 3 year warranty cause I will probably need it. Either that or trade campers.

I have had my Aviator for 11 months. Wonder if I can still get in on the extended warranty? We have had one problem after another. And does anyone know if the mattress's are warrantied. Ours on both sides are what I call grooved out where we have slept. But we have only slept in the camper very few times. Been in the shop more than we have owned it.

Which extended warranty are you referring to? If it was the 1 year extension from FR, no you can not purchase now as it had to be done within 10 days after purchase. If your considering another warranty the dealer offered fit may still be available to you at larger cost. Later RJD

FR no longer limits the 2nd year warranty to 10 days after purchase. They have sold so many RV's they can't keep up with the 2nd year warranty customers. I got mine 3 months after I took delivery and many others have taken longer to get it. It takes 2-4 weeks to get the signed warranty back.
