Hi, new owner questions

Hi, we're Terry and Marsha and we just bought a new Jayco Jay Flight 23RB and we're a little confused about the extras we were offered. Could someone please tell me if any of these options are worth buying from the dealer:
Extended service agreement
Paint protection
Coach net trailer protection (would replace our AAA roadside plan)

Thanks for any input. Looking forward to participating in this community.

Terry Easley

I would pass on the extended service plan (just my opinion, unless it's free). For the cost, you could repair many items out of pocket for less than the initial outlay for the plan. Also, many things are not covered with those extended service plans, and each component on your RV carries its own warranty that may be longer than the Jayco 2 year warranty any way. For example, Alpha Systems (the manufacturer of my roof membrane) offers its own 10 year stand alone warranty.

Don't know about paint protection, sorry.

My trailer came with a year of Coach Net for free direct from Jayco; do they not do that any more? I never had to use it thankfully, but it was nice knowing it was there if I needed it. I would check with your regular insurance company to see what kind of roadside assistance they offer on your existing plan.

Welcome to the forum! We also skipped on the extended service agreement since it seems pointless to pay for it and the interest while the (new) camper is under warranty for the first two years anyway. If you think you might need a service plan, I'd wait until the factory warranty is about up then explore your options. I've also never heard of paint protection for a TT but this maybe another sales point for the dealer to make more profit. We also received a year membership to Coach-net (offered free from Jayco for a year) but never used the service during the trial period. Our TV insurance (USAA)and TT insurance (Progressive) offer towing and flat repair under their policies so it seemed redundant to pay for yet another form of roadside assistance.

Extended service agreement ( invest it) otherwise you just lost $2,000.

Paint protection gives you nothing more & maybe less than a coat of wax. You'll need to do that anyway to get the road grime off just like your car. You'll need to get the black streaks off the sides because of the rain coming off the roof. The gutters don't work that well but they do work some.

Trailer protection , well in the next 5 years you might and I say only might have a flat tire. Good Sam or AAA might take care of that. My auto ins. Has a rider for my trailer and it's almost nothing money wise for the year.

Now go use it like you stole it!!!

Welcome to the forum, we have a 2015 Jay Flight 23RB and we love it. Our trailer came with a year of Coach Net for free, direct from Jayco. With all that said we didn't buy any extras, most of the time their just a rip off.

Welcome! Our TT came with a free year of CoachNet too. IMO, don't waste your money on the extended warranty.

When I bought my Jayco in 2008 (first RV ever) I went ahead and bought the extended service agreement to insure I didn't have a major expense after 3-4 years. I have never had my RV in the shop on a service related issue, so my $$$ was pretty well thrown away. However, should I have had to replace the a/c and the refrigerator and some other issues such as plumbing or electrical, I would have been proud I purchased the agreement. You just never know. Some say to put that cash you would have spent on the agreement in the bank and use it if you have a breakdown. Good idea but I doubt many actually do it. On my next Jayco, I will probably skip the agreement.

If you already have just upgrade to the AAA PLUS RV, then all your vehicles are covered because AAA follows the driver
