I know 100% it won't replace a tip out bed door or anything else due to "water intrusion" from a failed seal, failed caulking, so on and so forth. It also want cover the sidewall, the roof substrate, the floor structure or anything else water damaged. I don't even need to read the warranty documents to tell you that. Every warranty out there is the same no matter who provides it.

Find me one that covers damage due to water intrusion, and clearly states that in no uncertain terms in its contract, and I'll buy it this afternoon.

What does the Forest River original, or optional F.R. second year warranty, have to do with an "aftermarket" warranty? I agree I'd never NOT get the F.R. second year optional, but the OP was talking about an aftermarket warranty.

Its great that you know of LOTS of sidewalls and Roo doors replaced by F.R. during and after the warranty period but there are also LOTS that were not. Since we're on that subject this forum is not the only one where people discuss Forest River products, especially hybrids. There does not seem to be any rhyme nor reason to how the Rockwood division specifically handles / handled the bunk door issues. I know for a fact some have had the door parts only supplied after warranty had run its course, some have had the parts and labor supplied after the warranty, and some have been told to go pound salt. That is not net talk either.

As far as the F.R, warranty is concerned neglect your roof caulking and let is split open after 6 months and cause delamination. Good luck getting them to repair that. This is right out of the F.R. warranty "Failure to maintain seals through regular maintenance can lead to damage and may be considered abusive treatment under terms of your recreational vehicle warranty." That disclaimer has been known to be enforced but again maybe it depends who you know or what way the wind is blowing.

Thanks Guys but I am cancelling the extended warranty, I am very careful with my Roo and as long as I take good care of it and check it like I do before and after every trip I hope to have years of trouble free use, but most of the extended warranties I know of cost $1200-$1600 so I am dumping mine and getting my $ credited to my payoff, then I will own my 2015 Roo by June with no payments Thanks all for your information and opinions, they are well received.

It sure is nice to see somebody come on here to ask a question and actually take the advice of the posters here.

Nope, my bad live and learn, but I will ask them if I can still get it since I am using the dealer I bought it from for service and mine is still under warranty until April 2016? If not I will cancel EasyCare and just deal with what I might need to fix.

What are the issues after the 1 year warranty on the Roo's don't the tent ends have a 5 year warranty and I know roof membrane has a 12 but not sure what else I need to keep an eye on mine is a 2015 23IKSS old style not new layout

Read the warranty section in the owners manual. Basically anything that came with its own documentation/warranty in that big package of BS they gave you has its own warranty. Appliances, converter, tents, roof, axles, tires, frame, windows, entry door, shower base, all kinds of crap and none of it is covered under the F.R. 1st year or optional 2nd year warranty.

The F.R. warranty is for things like the bunk doors, the bunk door hinges, the body of the camper if say a corner was to pull apart, bad glue in the lamination process, maybe light fixtures/led bulbs...stuff like that.
