I have the Jayco Extended Warranty, but I didn't have to pay for it. After I had a deal on my new Designer and before I closed, Jayco announced a free 3 year extended at no charge.

This coming week I will use it for the first time replacing both cooling fans on my refrigerator. One of them has started making noise and the dealer is replacing both of them since the refrigerator has to be pulled out to get to them. I was told the $100.00 deductible is only $75.00 if you are having the work done at the original selling dealer, so doing the work and both fans for $75.00? Good deal for me.

JayPlus Service Plan

I agree with RVhiker

We were reluctant on purchasing at first but negotiated the plan price on our 2010 Jay Flight and I recently used Jay Plus to cover a power steering hose line replacement on my 09 F150. The Ford service manager asked if I had extended coverage and told him the only thing extended warranty I had was the Jay Plus for an RV and he said that should work. After all said and done I paid a $100 deductible and the plan paid $248 I was surprised

I purchased a new Whitehawk at my local dealer last week. After reading what other people are quoted for the JayPlus plan and exterior/interior protection plans, I feel my dealer is really trying to take me to the cleaners. I was quoted over $2400 ($50 deductible)for the 7 yr. JayPlus plan and over $2300 ($100 deductible). The Northwest Protection Package from "Duratain" was almost $1700 for the full meal deal. Consequently, I'm not doing anything. They have priced themselves out of business in those services. I'm going to do the exterior with Rejex (I think) and we are adding a monthly amount to our car repair savings plan for trailer breakdowns.

IMO pass on all of it. Save the $2k+ in your repair fund and you will be ahead of the game. As for rejex, I've never used it so I can't comment, but I do wax my TT twice a year and my TT still looks like the day I bought it...even stored outside uncovered.

I have heard (not verified) that the sales commission on an extended warranty plan is greater than the sales commission of the unit itself. Kinda bothers me.

Just be sure that you read the exclusions before buying. The devil is in the details.

They do, and IMO they're right. I have not purchased this, or any extended warranty on any of our vehicles or appliances, with the exception of vacuums, which suck (pun intended), and as a result have saved enough over the decades to pay for any repair several times over.

I bought a new laptop for $500 a few months ago. The store wanted about a hundred bucks for the EW. 20% extra mostly profit! And who wants to fix a 2 year old computer anyway?

Think about it. How many times in the past have you regretted not having bought an EW? It seems most problems exhibit themselves soon after use begins.
