Warranties

Can someone please give me the details of the extended FR warranty for year 2? I was told by my dealer that it did not cover the same things as the year 1 warranty, and that it wasn't worth it. Please clarify if you have it.

Also, can someone tell me if you have an extended warranty, through who, and how long it is for?

Thanks

In the search box above put in '2nd year warranty' and you'll find several links to info like this:
2nd Year Warranty Form Sticky

However, Colombus isn't on the original list. Don't know if they added it or not. I got it on our Sabre and it was done over the phone with FR directly, dealer wasn't involved. Well worth the $ IMHO.

I attached the warranty form. I do not buy extended warranties but this is not a bad deal for the second year. I take the money I would have spent on warranties and buy "spare" to have on hand if something does go wrong. If your some what handy I would not get it. Considering if something goes wrong you still need to find someone to fix it. Just me.

i was told it covered the same things as the first year warranty.
many dealers say things like that, to get customers to buy the 3rd party warranties that the dealer gets a commission on.

Why don't the Dealers tell you about this when you are purchasing, I just found out about it and the registration form says that it has to be turned in within ten days of purchase and I bought mine last summer.

because the dealers don't make any money out it, like they do selling 3rd party warranties that gets them commissions.
FR can't force them to mention it. the RV industry doesn't work like the Auto industry.

I opened the attachment above and it has some units at $150 and others at $250. Columbus is not listed. Does anyone know if it is $150 or $250? Either way, it seems like a great deal if it gets you through and extra season and another winter. (BTW, my 340RK comes off the line May 3rd. I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas.)

Not all dealers. We bought our 2604WS from Tropical RV in Ft. Pierce Fl and they actually gave us the 2nd year warranty application already filled out with our TT info. They told us we had 10 days to think about it. No pressure and did not try to sell us a 3rd party warranty.
