Extended warranty,GET IT!!!

I suggest if you buy a new RV, purchase the extended warranty. Several months back my A/C had to be replaced. Yesterday I go into the camper to put the washer board game back in the garage and as soon as I opened the door the pungent aroma of ammonia punched me in the face. 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.

I know right! It is funny, when I called the dealer to bring it in all I have to say is am the one that plugged into shore power that was wired wrong (220v incase you didn't catch that a while back) and they remember. LOL

I have the extended warranty but my dealer isn't smart enough to work on my 5er. They couldn't fix the simplest of issues with our new 5er. I do all my repairs myself. I need to send FR a bill for all their product and build issues I've had to repair.
Glad your dealer is a good one ours sure isn't and will never return to them again.

I had the same problem with the dealer where the camper was bought. The service manager at the time lied to me so I no longer use them(starts with a p ends with eaux). I have been using Southern RV for the last couple of years and they are 100% better.

I was once never a fan and then I needed one...

Then there was me buying one on a used car and getting more than 10X the price I paid for it in repairs.

When it came down to the warranty on the TT I thought about not getting it, and then I realized it was a small price to pay (not that small really) for the peace of mind it offers.

I can tell you we bought an extended warranty when we bought our 2012 Silverback from Tri am rv. Sales man told us it was the best out there and covered every thing. Well had problem with bedroom a/c,control panel on frig and seal on slide falling apart. Well they tell us it doesn't cover trouble shooting problem. 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!

Wow the only time we have had a camper back for warranty work was once each for extremely minor cosmetic things........... Our current 2013 camper has not been back to the dealer for any work that would fall under an extended warranty. Its well over 3 years now a extended warranty for us would have been a waste of money.

We bought or 2006 in 2007 & never had it back to the dealer for any "work" just service.

For $150 it's a pretty good investment to extend for an additional year and it is offered by FR. Later RJD

To clarify The FR one year extended warranty on TT is a good deal for non mechanical people. The fancy expensive 3rd party warranties dealers offer are usually just added profit.
