I have a friend who bought a Samsung 50" LCD flat screen. He didn't take out the extended warranty on his $1800 purchase. 14 months (2 months after the 1-year warranty ended), his television failed. The part to repair it was $1200. He called Samsung and got absolutely no where. They would not even pay for a percentage of the part. So he had to buy another television (this time he bought a plasma for $900), but I guarantee he'll never again buy a Samsung!

Try http://www.thewarrantygroupdirect.com instead.

It's owned by one of the largest warranty companies in the world and you can get 2 extra years for less than $130.

I tried that site. I couldn't find anything about RV coverage or were you just talking about the electronic coverage?

i have yet to hear of a 3rd party warranty that covers the same as the factory warranty.
and nearly all end up not covering the most common issues on RVs.

Has anyone bought the 5 year extended warranty from any dealer. Or maybe I'm the only DS out here.

From what I understand it's really necessary to see and read all the fine print on the extended warranty policy. It's not always the same coverage as the original warranty (& second year FR warranty). Warranties can vary in coverage from one policy to another. Often things you would think would be covered is excluded.

Would the 5 year warranty start after the FR warranty end or would it start right away? Sounds like a silly question but I have seen some warranties that overlapped for the original warranty period.
