JayPlus Service Plan

Heard our new trailer is being dropped off at the dealer tonight which leaves one more decision to make. Has anyone purchased the JayPlus service plan and found any value in it? I'm being offered the Platinum plan ($100 deductible) for about $1,200 at time of sale and it seems like it would be worthwhile for the seven years of total coverage it provides, even if only just one major thing goes wrong outside of the two year warranty.

PS: I've found all the recent tips that have been posted on the PDI in the 5th wheel forum very helpful and hope it will lead to a smooth and complete delivery experience.

If you have the funds and it gives you a piece of mind, it's certainly worth it.
I think sometimes people are satisfied with the best 2 year warranty in the business, thinking most things will shake out within that period of time.
Also, I think it depends on how handy you are in fixing things that may go wrong after the warranty period.

Congratulations on the new rig.

Best regards,

Dont worry. After a year we just got an offer in the mail for the "JayPlus Extended Protection" plan. We have till June to decide.

Consumer Reports generally feels you are wasting your money on extended warrantees.

I have purchased 2 extended warranties (ever). 1 paid for itself and 1 didn't. I do not purchase them anymore. That's just my opinion. Everyone has to decide for themselves.

Its a personal choice but I generally don't agree to them. I did buy the plan through RVDirect on my new Jayco, it netted me a decent rate drop on their finance rate (which my local institutions wouldn't match) so it nearly paid for itself. You will have to weigh the length of ownership time you expect and if the warranty is transferable to a new owner or another unit. The one I selected can do either for a nominal fee - something that is a strong selling point when selling your rig on your own (which I've done rather then trading in the past).

Never tried the JayPlus, but we bought one from Interstate on both our 2011 and rolled it over to our 2012 when the tornado hit our 11. Can't tell you it's worth it as I've not yet needed it. But personally, it's worth peace of mind to us to not have to worry about anything going wrong and costing us $$ for the next 7 years. Good luck on your decision...

Does the JayPlus Service Plan cover water intrusion leak damage to the ceilings, walls and floors? This is one of the most expensive types of damage. Here's a link to the plan booklet: JayPlus Service Plan. I found nothing in the booklet showing that such water damage is covered. Interesting that the booklet does not include the specific exclusions of the Platinum Plan. I'll bet (but do not know) that water damage is specifically excluded.

Extended service plans are like a bet. The company that provides the plan "bets" that the covered repairs in the time period will be less than the premium, and the buyer "bets" that the covered repairs will be more than the premium. I've always believed that the company offering the plan sets the premium and coverage very carefully. Occasionally the owner will "win", but you are betting against very experienced odds makers.

There's lots of advice and information in forums... sometimes it is correct. For example, all of my posts are made by a political appointee who got the job as a reward for contributions to my diesel bill.
