thanks again!

Our experience was about the same. Our dealer made zero mention of the extended warranty from Forest River. They did however push and push and push us to buy their extended warranty for $2795. haha No thanks.

I called forest river warranty, they emailed me the form and we sent it in. Piece of cake. And very nice people to deal with in the warranty dept.

I had done my home work and found out about the extended warranty. It pays to read up on brochures. Later RJD

Thank you to all of your post about the 2 year warranty. We were in the middle of finalizing our paperwork and I had this nagging gut instinct NOT to buy the extended contract. Ignoring my gut and going forth with the great Finance managers lead we said yes. It only made a difference in our payment by 13.00. (Ok I can do without a Starbucks).
The dealership we dealt with out sources their finance office as many of them do now, so we were able to disconnect the call and discuss what we really felt. This is when we let our fingers do the walking and found all of your suggestions in the Forum on the 2nd year for 150.00. Immediately I called FR and yes indeed we were able to have the paperwork emailed over and had it sent in the mail back to them in less that 30 min. I contacted the finance dept and he then recontracted our loan.
You may all know that after the 2 years is up you will ALWAYS have the options to purchase another one (aftermarket not a FR) when this run out.
Do not get caught up in this. Use your manufacture as much as possible and not a aftermarket.
Can't wait to use our new trailer

Congratulations on the new RV and getting the 2nd year warranty from FR. As Gljurczyk mentions above, best $150 you can spend.
Once you get all your paperwork you will see an offer directly from Dometic to extend the refrigerator warranty for an additional 3 years for a total of 5. A similar one is available for the A/C.

Just submitted my FR extended warranty paperwork this past week. I'll be on the lookout for the those other offers on the fridge and AC. Good to know.
