Jayco plus extended warranty

Any one know much about it and/or if its worth the money? I've looked around a little online with not much info. Basically i understood it to be an additional 5 years on top of the factory 2 years.....but it only covers little nickel and dime parts for the high doller stuff it covers look to me like.

Im skeptical of extended warrantys.....if it sounds too good to be true, then if probably is ha.

I finally found some literature on it, after i figured out how to spell it correctly haha. Im not going to purchase it either. It really only covers small parts in the warrantied items it covers. Im a do-it-yourselfer any ways and i really dont think I'd ever get my money back with it for what it covers.

Save the OEM manuals and refer to the Mfg Warranty....a few parts have longer than 2 years of warranty and have no limitations on original ownership. Almost everything is production coded for recall / warranty in today's world.

Put the monthly cost of an extended warranty into a separate savings account, in 2 years when the Jayco warranty is up.... you'll be self insured against any problems if they were to arise, and if you never have to use the money..... throw a big party for all your RV friends ;-)

If you ask anyone in the retail merchandise fields, they'll tell you extended warrantees are a huge money maker for retailer. Warrantees & credit cards pull in almost as much revenue as their merchandise, and they cost the dealer nothing. That's why they beat their employees up to sell them both. With all the limitations and exclusions, the chances of you breaking even on the deal are extremely small. Stay away from extended warrantees on anything!

A colleague was telling me about his new car purchase and how he figured he got a reasonable deal and didn't get caught buying any of the dealer add-ons like fiberguard, etc. But he did opt for the "extended warranty" and he said the sales guy actually made a loud "woop!" sound. He thought that was strange and was asking me what to make of it. Boy did I laugh and had to tell him that couldn't have been a good sign!! :-)

Hi
When we brought the trailer we got a 72 month extended warranty on it. So far so good, It is going to pay for the water bypass valve being fix on Saturday. I am taking it to the dealer We brought it from $ 50 deductible not bad
Now do not laugh I brought a new car after the husband died ,the car I had was a 2006 Jeep liberty diesel ,all ready put enough money into it.
I was told when I brought the new car, Mazda I would get the extended warranty money back If I did not use it. ( They Lied ) Have had the car for 10 months now
I went straight back and made a big enough stink, that I am getting my money back.

Bought our new TT yesterday with the 84 mo extended warranty. When the business manager offered it, I told her we were going to pass on it since I normally don't think extended warranties are a good value. My DW put her hand on my knee and looked me in the eye and said, "I want it."

That was the end of discussion.
