1 year check in. The camper is doing great. I thought I would post about my latest experience with our Dealer. I've worked on airplanes my whole life and have always maintained my own stuff. I was skeptical about the Forever Warranty and though I passed on the premium "bumper to bumper" upsell, I did keep the basic. I figured the extended coverage for the HVAC, 12cu ft fridge, microwave and water heater was worth the cost of the annual "inspection". Took our RV back to Three Way Campers after 12 months and stayed with it and paid the fee. I had already looked before going and didn't see anything on the truck to grease, knew they weren't going to repack the bearings on a truck and since all the roof seams were still intact when I examined them, I figured I was paying for 2 hours of shop time for minimal work, but it kept the warranty alive past the 2 years for the appliances.
After I got it back to the storage lot, I started poking around and found that they had removed the plugs Ford installs on the steering components, replacing them with zerks and greased. I felt better about the visit.
Fast forward three weeks and I crawl up on the roof to clean it. Surprise surprise, I found fresh beads of sealer applied around everything penetrating the roof and numerous places where the roof seams met the side seams. The fresh sealant beads were right on top of the old sealant on the ridge where the flange of the vents, etc, sits on top of the roof. This is where I had looked for cracks in the sealant based on what others had found in this forum, but I never would have thought of taking preventative measures where the seams historically fail. There was also fresh sealant at the corners. This was not listed as over and above the inspection and unless you climb up and look you wouldn't even know it was done. I know there are nay-sayers on Forever Warranty and until I need the warranty, I won't know if it is good or not. But so far I feel I got my money's worth for 2 hours of shop time.
Kudos to Three Way Campers for their excellent service department.
