Extended Warranty

We just purchased a new 2015 Precept 31UL. I was determined to turn a deaf ear to the expected extended warranty sales pitch. Most consumers guides will tell you they are a 100% profit for the dealer and a waste of your money. They don't come cheap either. $2300.00 to extend the coach and chassis/drive train out to 5 years. My wife thought we should spring for it and,well, you know how the rest of it went. I actually do have some peace of mind about it and really, what's another couple thou when you're already spending a ton of dough? Your thoughts?

I didn't purchase any extended warranties on my 2014. I haven't purchased one on anything ever and haven't been burned yet. We practically live in our new unit during camping season, and appliances and whatnot are run long and often. I figure if problems arise it will be in the two year manufacturer warranty period. But its all personal preference. If you have peace of mind buying the warranty, you made the right choice. Congrats on the new unit

X2, keep momma happy! We purchased the Good Sams 7 year warranty. I didn't do the math, but I sure sleep better at night and so does the wife... It was worth it even if I was getting ripped off. lol.

there is a big difference IMO between a tow-able and a motor home.

I always purchase as long a warranty as I can buy on my vehicles.

On my trailer I believe it is a waste of money as many components have longer warranties anyway.

having a major failure in the drive train of a MH could easily run into the 5-7 thousand range. Nothing that catastrophic would ever happen to a tow-able.

Make sure it is a warranty from the manufacturer, not a third party. Third party warrantees are almost 100% worthless.

$2300 is their first offer. If you want it, offer them half and work from there.

Read the fine print. Most warranty's wont cover things if you dont get a dealer to inspection once or twice a year. Inspections can end up costing more than any possible repairs ever would.

Extended Warraies

For our new 2014 266RKs Eagle I purchased the extended warranties from the appliance mfg. which was offered in the literature provided with the TT. Purchased the extended warranty for the frig, Water Heater, A/C Unit, Furnace and Toilet, for $489.00 . These warranties kick in after the 2 year Jayco warranty expires. This is at least a cushion to defer some expense and I know it does not cover everything, nor does the RV America extended warranties. I know I had purchased one once from RV America and had the claim refused as my axle damage was not covered with a premium policy.
