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
1 microwave
Automatic transfer switch
Water heater propane control valve
Propane/CO detector
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.

My dealer just emailed me the extended warrantee yesterday. I think I'm going to pass on it. $1700 for a warranty on a trailer that costs $17000 is a little too steep.

I took delivery of a new 29.5 bhds today. I declined the extended warranty. The dealer is 70 miles away. The deductible was 100.00. I am very capable of doing stuff myself. If I was to have a problem, by the time i bought the fuel to deliver and pickup the trailer and paid the deductible, i could buy the parts and fix it myself faster and with less hassle.....just my opinion though. The extra warranty was almost 3 grand in my case.

Yes we paid $ 2300 for the extended warranty and this thing covers everything

I can fix some things, but cutting the water line and redoing under the kitchen sink.(no) For $50 dollar deductible I will take the trailer there and get them to do it right

Then if there is a problem then they can fix it.

I took the interior of the truck apart so I know how to use screw drivers and sockets Girl

That was the end of discussion.
I am so glad you were able to recognize that "subtle hint". It is amazing what a DW can do when she wants to make sure we get the meaning!
