When I purchased my Designer in August 2010 Jayco offered a no charge 3 year extended warranty to help dealers move 2010 inventory. I had already cut my deal on my Designer so I already had a bottom line number. When I went in to close a few days later they showed me the free extended warranty letter from Jayco so I know it wasn't added to my deal since the date of the announcement was after I cut my deal.
Since that time the extended warranty has paid for:
1 complete wheel/brake assembly
front jack motor and controller
large slide motor
2 Thetford pottys
Automatic transfer switch
Water heater propane control valve
Jensen entertainment center
Complete Norcold refrigerator due to cooling system failure
I would most likely not have purchased the extended warranty and I don't remember at this point what the cost would have been, but it would have been less than the cost of a new Norcold so I'm pretty sure I would have been ahead of the game.
But then again, I would not have purchased it. I'm just glad I have it and it is good until August 2015.
