My experience is that the RV industry is very poorly regulated, and they get away with some incredibly derelict and unsafe practices. You have to go into it with eyes wide open and know that you will spend a lot of time and money repairing things and rebuilding things properly. If you are not a resourceful person, you probably will not enjoy owning an RV, boat, plane, or a classic car, unless you have a bank account that allows you to pay for all of the vehicle failures, restoration, and wear and tear repairs. Well, really, add a home to that list, too. Most homes are built to fail as well.
In the case of an RV, you bought a rolling earthquake made of cheap materials that have been slapped together. Personally, I find warranties and dealers to be a huge sham (and most every repair shop). I reserve trips to a dealer (RV or Auto) for only the most critical safety and/or mechanical recalls. Otherwise, I do not want them touching my investments - been in and around the industry, been screwed numerous times, learned to take ownership of my choices to own "stuff." I can count the number of mechanics and/or technicians that I trust with our vehicles on half a hand. I definitely do not trust any manufacturer of any brand of vehicle (RV or Auto).
The key word is "resourceful." If you do not have the cash, you must learn to diagnose and repair for yourself if you want to keep your "stuff" safe, highly operational, clean, and enjoyable. For us working schmoes, owning stuff takes time, mental and physical effort, our limited finances, lots of patience, and most importantly a "can do" attitude. If that does not sound appealing and you work to get by, then you would be happier finding another place to put your time, money, and energy.
