How about the optional 2 year warranty for $150 that is available on Forest River products?

That's a good deal. It covers everything the first year warranty covers.

That's not much more than the hourly labor late at the local Lazydays.

I'd probably pay that just for the peace of mind.

The only extended warranty we buy is the one directly from the FR manufacturer. We seem to find a few things after the 1yr basic warranty is up. Plus, it is fairly inexpensive? About $150 2 yrs. ago.

+1 on the 2nd year from FR for $150 - that's a good deal and brings some piece of mind.

Like some have said. "If you have it you wont need it" it's like insurance.

To me extended warranties are like time shares. They sound good at the presentation, but the reality is the only one who makes out is the seller. Most of your rig is under warranty. If you find you have a lemon while it is under warranty then maybe the extended is a good idea, but other than that save your $$$.

OK So I am one of the minorities and bought the insurance. So far we have used it to replace one of our jacks that started leaking, and a slide that didn't want to go back in. $100.00 was our cost. The insurance took care of the rest. Just piece of mind.

Just to be heard from

I bought a 1200 dollar mill stone of an extended warranty from my dealer.

To pay off, a stray electron coming in from outer space must be proven to have caused the damage. A sworn statement from ET must accompany the bill.

I trusted the dealer to pick one that they used for their warranty work.

When I folded the rear stabilizer while learning how it all worked, I learned the value of my warranty.

I reported the bent stab, thinking the warranty would cover it.
NOT! as it was "my fault" (True, but it was my first mistake! My second was reporting it and not just replacing the thing in the first place.)

Now everything that goes wrong with the rig can be traced back to that "bounce" when the stab folded.

Delam? screwed.
Out of rig anything? screwed.
Leak anywhere? screwed.

The roof is covered only for the material. Caulking, edge wear, scuff marks, branch scrapes, leaks, or anything else you can imagine that does not involve materal literally falling apart is not covered.

For 1200 bucks I could have replaced just about any appliance in the camper.

Live and learn.

OH, and the dealer NEVER mentioned the 150 dollar second year extension.
