well I'm mechanical inclined but why should I do there work. (I will do some minor) Not going to happen till the warranty is gone. Also I doubt one could fix an AC or frig if it goes bad. Later RJD

I would prefer to do the work on my RV than have the dealer do it unless it is something I can't do. Don' want to give it up for half the season and have it possibly damaged while being jockeyed around in a crowded lot. I replaced an AC on my last TT cost me $800 and 4 hrs. still better than a $2000 warranty.

I know where your from! I've heard a lot of bad reviews about that dealer also. So I stayed away from them.

Just purchased my Silverback and are trying to decide if we should get the dealer warranty or an aftermarket warranty. Or not get it all together.

Sound advice! I went with Wholesale Warranty at the 12-month of ownership and never looked back. I used to have Good Sams Roadside assistance but changed to Coach Net because of their great reputation and added services with a premium account.

They told us it was loose wires on the a/c and frig and not covered. The seal was the only thing covered and cost us $50. They told us we owed them $250 for the trouble shooting. So $300 bucks for nothing. I guess its great if it obvious problem but otherwise they aren't worth the paper its written on!

Ouch, at the moment I cant recall what extended warranty we have but we have never paid over $50. When the A/C went out they had to troubleshoot it for several hours.

I am one that believes in peace of mind. I think the extended warranty was $1700 and I have a total of 7 years of warranty. As of now I have warranty for 3 more years. Well worth it to me because it paid for itself and the piece of mind I have.

Yep, you guessed it cooling unit on refrigerator took a dump....literally. With that being said the cost to replace the A/C was $50.00. The cost to replace the cooling unit on the fridge will be $50.00 as well. Extended warranty is well worth it, my has already paid for itself.
Your Post title is (Extended Warranty,Get It!!)! I agree (IF) it is a (Forest River 2nd Year Warranty)! There is N/C of 50.00$ with the F/R Warr. Youroo!!
