it's only available for towables and only for the original FR brands and Palominos.

all the other recent FR acquisitions do not qualify for it.(Shasta, Viking, Dynamax, Prime Time and Coachmen)
I brought this up to the Finance Guy and he said he wasn't aware of it. When we went in to finalize everything he said he had checked and I was right but, it is not offered for the Prime Time models

Yes. We bought it for our IKSS. Just download the form from the dollars and cents sections of this site and mail it to Forest River with your check. They will sign it and send you back a copy. They don't seem to hold to the 10 day period to purchase it, but don't wait - get it in.

The dealer gets no $ from this - it is a deal directly between you and FR, which is why many dealers make no effort to make buyers aware.

This older posting has a lot of good info, with phone numbers of who to call if you want to order it over the phone as I did. There is also a pdf file of the form if you want to mail it in with a check. I wouldn't worry too much about the 10 day ordering deal, I was past it and just explained that I wasn't aware of this program and that no one at my dealer ever told me about. She looked up my stuff on her computer and said no problem...
Here is the link with some good info...

2nd Year Forest River Extended Warranty??

You might have to copy and paste it into your browser if it doesn't take you there directly.

Our dealer must be one of the good ones because they gave us the paperwork right up front for the 2nd year. There is a form that is filled out by your dealer that includes TT info and delivery date, ask them for it. If they donít know what you are talking about, a copy of the form is floating around on the forum here somewhere, fill it out, have the dealer sign it, add check for $150 and mail it. It takes a while for FR to get it back to you, but they will get it back to you.

So I called dealer today and was told 2nd year warranty is a waste of money.
I was told it only covers manufactures defects and not if something brakes from wear and tear.
I was told I can cancel extended warranty within the first 30days. And tge money would just be applied to the loan.

the 2nd year warranty is the same as the original 1 year FR factory warranty.

not sure what this extended warranty says, but you really need to read all the fine print.
many find out that these 3rd party extended warranties don't cover the types of major things that RV suffer from. such as: delamination, roof leaks, frame issues and so on.

I canceled mine after 1 1/2 years and they gave me a prorated refund which is better than nothing. I canceled it because I found the same thing, that it doesn't cover much of anything. When I did use it because the furnace was not working, they fixed it, and they tried charging me. There was a broken wire and they tried saying that is considered an adjustment, and that is not covered, well hello a broken wire is not an adjustment. That is how they get around covering things, they just say it is an adjustment. Extended warranties IMO are a total waste of money.

Sounds like a weak excuse from a guy trying to save the sale of the warranty. Extended warranties are huge $$ makers for dealers. I guess you would have to read the fine print, but I don't ever recall seeing a warranty (other than some for cel phones called a "protection plan", not a warranty) that covers wear and tear. If your kid spills grape juice on the carpet or a mouse eats a hole in your canvas, is that extended warranty going to cover it? If yes, maybe its worth the extra cost.

Generally a warranty is just that - coverage against defects in material and workmanship, and usually if something wears out prematurely through "normal use" a warranty will cover it, but that is very subjective.
