Glad I saw this before I go to pick up, I will make sure to ask specifically about the FR warranty, the dealership already sent me info on the warranty they offer and I was not interested at that price, but $150 for an extra year pays for itself if one thing goes wrong.

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.
My dealer showed me a pamphlet on the FR second-year warranty, and it had a list of things that are covered the first year but not the second year.

Do you still have that pamphlet? Is it different than what the warranty form lists? The list on the form is pretty comprehensive.

I don't. This was about a year ago when I bought our latest camper. He just pointed out the list of exclusions for the second year, but I can't really remember any of them.

I just wanted to point out that what he showed me indicates the second-year warranty is not merely a continuation of the first-year coverage.

I bought a used unit late last fall and was not able to do a shake down to be under the 90 day warranty so I got the extended warranty. Just wanted to cover things I couldn't test, water heater, and AC, Fridge. Got it for peace of mind so when I open it up in spring and something doesn't work I'm covered.

All - I don't think the OP is talking about the extended 2nd year warranty for $150, which all agree is a waste of money.

I think the OP is talking about what I was also offerred...a 5 year warranty from USA Travel Care. It is offered in Platinum, Gold, and Silver options. It covers all the systems in the camper (water heater, fresh water, waste, AC, range, oven, gas, suspension, brakes, towing assistance, etc)

I was offered it on day one for $1,700, but was given a full year to decide. Waiting turned out to be a good thing...I just bought it and was given another 10% off. So for $1,530 (with 10% down, I got 18mos payment plan with 0% interest), I have full coverage for 5 years past the 1 year manufacturer warranty.

Or so the paperwork claims... I'm sure there's some fine print I missed, but at the time I figured this was a good deal.

Force you are right. I did buy the USA travel care platinum coverage.
I'm still trying to decide if its a good idea to keep it.
Not many people have had mechanical issues other than some stuff covered buy the first year warranty. $1700 is a good bit of money. I'm wondering if anybody has had to put more than 1700 in there roo in the first 5 years other than matinance.
Guess I'm just worried because this a big investment for us(the new camper)
And has a lot if power options, 2 slides, power awning,power tounge jack,ect..that could go bad.

Ok cool, glad we're on the same page.

I have only had mine 1 year, and have had no major problems, so my decision was based more on Murphy's Law than anything else.

I just figure $1,530 (10% down, $76/mos for 18 months, 0% interest) was a fair price for protecting a $20K camper.

EDIT: Suggest asking your dealer for that extra 10%. Happy to send you a PDF copy of my 10% reduction letter if you want, just private message me your email address.

i have never seen or heard of such a pamphlet. and i've been in the FR community since 2006.
my 2nd year warranty(which cost only $100 at that time)was no different than the first year warranty.
was tongue to bumper, just like the original 1st year warranty.
and i had a number things done under warranty that 2nd year.
