The Forest River 2nd year warranty is pretty much a waste of $150.00. Most of the items covered by the 2nd year warranty are covered by the manufacturers warranty for at least 2 years or more. Example , Coleman Ac comes with a 2 year

I respectively disagree.
2nd year coverage should be bought.

Could you explain why it should be bought ?

I actually bought the warranty myself. But after really looking at the coverage I regret it .

I bought the 2nd year and to me it was the same as the first year. I had a TV replaced, a convertor, slides adjusted, resealed windows and roof area, replaced my sirius xm and repaired some trim. I would buy again in a hot second......

I didn't buy the warranty on mine and only had the furnace repaired after the first year. It was covered under it's respective warranty. It went out after 1 year and 360 days. The warranty is a gamble. In my case I don't have slides or TV or sirius XM. Other people might be handy enough to make other repairs to it or store it inside. It's a personal preference based on your needs. That's my two cents.

Either way I don't think it's a total waste but it may work out that you spend the cash and never get a return on it. That's not really a bad thing when you consider you spent thousands of dollars buying the trailer.

I'll second that! The second year warranty covers all those things outside of appliance manufacturer's warranties... I can list off a dozen campers I know personally who really were lucky they spent the $150. Let's see, one electric stabilizer assembly $550 + labor - covered; faded front cap - prep, repaint and finishing for $868 - covered; roof deck board curled at edge requiring complete new roof for over $1k - covered; Roo 23SS bunk door issue required new front cap, new doors, new heated mattresses and rebuilt cabinetry - covered and performed at factory; delamination of one side requiring slide room removal and replacement of whole side - covered and completed at factory; and, since you are new, just search the forum and you will see what's been covered.

$150 is nothing compared to these. If you were talking about the aftermarket warranties dealers push for $1000 and up, I'd agree. However, $150 can pay for itself with simply having two cabinet doors come apart along with a piece of photolam countertop bubble up. Ask me how I know...

How long ago was this warranty work done?

The extra warranty that they offer now does not cover most of what you just listed.

DITTO!
we had a number of things fixed under the 2nd year warranty, that were not things that had its own separate warranty.
It was tongue to bumper, just like the first year warranty.
