The fridge offer was on the last page of the Dometic manual. Can't recall on the A/C.

Price I paid was $169.90 ($56.63/yr.) for 3 years on the fridge and $89.95 ($29.98/yr.) for 3 years on the A/C. Fridge warranty includes labor and A/C warranty excludes labor.

The primary reason I purchased the fridge warranty is the fridge on mine is located in a slide with exhaust of heated air through the side wall instead of the roof. Probably fine but it just looks like the fridge will be working really hard.

Salesman love this tactic. It *only* makes your payment go up by $13.

Nevermind the fact that you'll likely still be paying that extra $13 every month long after the warranty is up. Or the fact that you are also paying interest on that $13 every month.

You certainly made the right choice.

I purchased the warranty on my current trailer, but am curious if it's available on 5'ers too? Would be a no brainer to get it on my new one if available.

As warranties go it's a good deal. Don't know why they don't just offer a 2 yr to start with and build it into the price.

This is not the standard warranty. The 2nd year warranty is an Extended Warranty and does not cover your camper "Bumper to Bumper". That is what a FR rep told me. It is still a good deal but not the same as the 1st year warranty.

don't know who the rep was, but as far as i know, the 2nd year FR warranty is the same bumper to bumper warranty, as the first year.

it has always just extended the original 1st year factory warranty.

mine was bumper to bumper.
