Come to find out that the axle was installed wrong since new causing the camber tto be out on that axle. Dealer and manufacture would not stand behind him but his xtraride did and replaced the axle. . No it was not a Jayco trailer but Lippert did make the chassis. I had the xtraride on my previous 06 Airstream, A/C went bad when we where in Flordia. xtraride paid the $1400.00+ to replace the unit.

Okay, here's a real life example of not having purchased an additional warranty. A couple years and 20-some thousand miles ago I bought six Michelins for our dually. I turned down the road hazard warranty @ $30 per tire. On inspection yesterday the tread is separating on a rear tire, meaning I have to buy two new ones. Can't have one new and one old tire on a dually so they pro rated both tires. The pro rata price comes to about $240 for the pair, which I'll pay for myself.

If I had bought the road hazard it would have cost 6x30, or about $180. That's pretty expensive insurance for $60 worth of coverage!

BTW, those are the most expensive tires I've ever purchased for any vehicle and the only failure I've ever had. Who says you get what you pay for? Not so much, these days.

Tires don't seem to last like they used to. I wouldn't buy the warranty, just keep up the maintenance and replace tires every five years or less and you should be fine. We owned our last camper for 11 years and the microwave pooped out ... cost 100.00.,Nothing else went bad so I was way ahead.

For me, buying extra warranty insurance has always been a rip-off. Any issues I've had cost far less then warranty insurance to fix. I'll never forget the time I took in my insured camcorder in to be repaired. A month later, still no camcorder. I inquired as to it's whereabouts, and was told that it wasn't covered because I had dropped it. That wasn't the case. I raised hell with management, and they finally replaced the missing camcorder with a new one. The headaches weren't worth the paper the contract was written on.
