The secret to warranty work it to not use it unless it is absolutely required. Many items that could be taken care of yourself and done so would save an great amount of time that it sets in the shop. Yes there are items that you can't handle yourself and do need the warranty to handle these situations.
My first warranty trip to a local dealer took 4 weeks, but this was over the Christmas Holiday which is the same time period that Forest River shuts down for a few weeks so no parts could be ordered or repair authorization given for warranty work.
The second trip for warranty work the trailer was gone for 6 weeks. We delivered it to Elkhart, IN at the Wildcat factory repair facility. We knew it wouldn't be touched for a few weeks due to the FROG Rally and all the techs being sent to do repairs for owners at the rally. Wildcat had the RV transported back to our house and parked in the driveway here just south of Dallas.
The list was completed without fail. This included replacing the vinyl flooring, repair of a sidewall crack, replacing the entire exterior side wall, painting the front faded cap, removed the instant hot water heater and replacing it with a standard gas/electric model, the entire under belly material replaced, all pretty major things in my book. I am still making a few adjustments here and there, but these are all little things that I can do without needing a warranty tech to do it.
Why do I take care of the little things myself, well it keeps my Wildcat where I can use it when I wish, rather than sitting on a dealers lot on their time frame at my mercy.
