Good for you. I'm kind surprise not many folks talk about important things like this. This is the great thing about this forum. Everyone is learning new things from others.

It's great to hear that FR is giving you back something for your problems and time out of the camping season for the repairs.

Thanks rockwood06. If you notice in my signature, I've only camped 9 nights this year. I usually have about that many by the end of March.

To be fair, not just the needed repairs but some personal issues have kept me away from the campgrounds so far.

Desperate, I went out last weekend. Fishing was lousy, it was hot and humid. Temps near 100 and heat index at least 105. The AC cooled the TT good, but started vibrating and making noise. I checked for dirt daubers, but that wasn't the problem. Called my dealer and the service manager said it was probably a bearing going out. He also said I didn't need to break camp, it wouldn't hurt to run it and bring it in this weekend.

Since the fish were taking the weekend off, I went through the TT with a fine tooth comb and came up with 14 warranty items to be fixed. Mostly small items, but since I'm taking it in for the AC, might as well take advantage of the warranty.

I have to admit, despite all the problems I've had with this TT, FR and my dealer has treated me right. I won't have a problem buying another FR product, but it probably won't be a Rockwood.

Damn, wish I had known about this. Probably too late now to ask for it.

I have heard of instances that FR would let you have the second year as long as you were still in the first year. If your first year warranty is still in force, then give them a call. They may agree to extend it the second year.

I just talked to FR about the warranty, my dealer never told me about it and there was no info about it in the owners package. they are going to let me purchase it, it is up to them to allow it. i would call and talk to the warranty manager for your unit and see what they say. sounds like they are very good about letting you get after the 10 day period is up. always worth a try!

This is what this forum is all about. Sharing good information.
I'm sure if you give Forest River a call they will do what's right.
The guy on the phone said they don't make anything on the 2nd year warranty but I think this one of the many good things I have heard about Forest River.
So if you a original owner of a Forest River rig and still inthe first year of ownership and want the second year. Just give them a call. It might be worth it.

If you need the form here is a copy
Phone number is 574-642-5166 and talk with Johnathan

John thanks for posting the warranty form.
How do I know for sure the amount to send in for this extended warranty? I am still within the 10 days.

I think it is now $150, but still a good deal. Better than these after market warranties that some dealers want to peddle.
