I have had several warranties on my vehicles and have never had a problem with them,except for the time I needed to replace 4 bad injectors on my Excursion and it was 250 miles out of the Ford warranty and they were in the exclusion section. I have had them from Warranties 4wheels and wholesale both. I didn't get one for the MH as I the only thing I was worried about was the fridge and several I looked at didn't cover them.
I wish I had gotten one as the gennie starter replacement was about $700,the wheel bearing replacement and ABS problem were almost $1000,the air compressor replacement,(the 1 year old replacement was done wrong and I couldn't find where it was done) was over $1500 and a couple of others that would have been covered cost me a lot. The fridge has never had a problem,except for the line for the ice maker broke.
I will say that I love my insurance company as the bill to replace the cracked roof and the water damage to the drivers side wall is about $7500 and covered and they covered the awning and slide toppers damaged in a Death Valley windstorm last year,even tho the slides were pulled in and the awning was up and fastened. All under comp.

I do agree, 2.00/day invested over 5 years can cover a lot of repairs, let's see, that's 365*5*2 or 3650 dollars, But if you get a decent rate of return on the investment that 3600 can become as much as 7,000 (though I doubt it would get that high)

How much is a new engine?

Page 2: Are you going to faithfully deposit 2.00/day in that investment account?

If the answer is yes, Find a good investment firm, and invest.

Our coach was one year old with 19k miles when we bought it. The dealer tried to sell me a 7 year, 75k mile warranty for $3300. I found the exact same warranty from the same insurance provider for $1750 on the Internet. My policy paid for itself within two years after several expensive repairs. I still have another 18 months to go before it expires.

Similar policies have gone up tremendously since I bought mine. At today's prices, I wouldn't even bother with one. I was very fortunate with mine.

I read someplace that the selling party can get up to 50% of the price of a service contract.

I purchased an extended warranty when I purchased a 2008 Monaco Knight new in 2009 I am glad I have the warranty. I have had the coach less than three years and am know ahead of the cost of the warranty Insurance. first trip with the coach the A/C compressor seized, the Hydraulic jack leaked ( had to be replaced ) the next trip the rear camera quit and the power steering box developed a leak, the the full wall slide out seal failed and I still have almost three years left on the contract. It has been a battle with the warranty company so far I am winning ( American Guardian ) I lost on the first repair It was done at a Cummins repair facility and they would not deal with the insurance company the rest of the repairs were done at my selling dealer

I called my warranty company this morning to argue about the $97 re-inspection fee and she wouldn't budge, even though I brought up that it was not in the contract. I probably should have asked for someone who could make a educated decision and may still will. I called the dealer and told him I would pay it and to just get my MH fixed.

She just repeated that there was a $97 re-inspection fee after I said it was not in my contract twice.

They pulled the head and had someone from the warranty company come out to inspect the damage to the engine and then couldn't test the fuel pump. They need to come out again and re-inspect my motor home to verify that the fuel pump is weak after the engine is replaced and running.

They want to charge me for the re-inspection.

I have bought extended warrenties on Jeeps, Harleys, Motor homes and lease cars. I have never needed them. So I guess I wasted my money.

Finally got word from freedom roads that they do not want replace my microwave. They want maintenance records on the microwave. Did not there was maintenance on a microwave. I paid $4200 for the warranty. They want the dealer to tear down micro to see why it fried and if they agree to fix it, the dealer must use used parts. Dealer said he refuses to tear down and I need to take to appliance repair store.

I will be calling them tomorrow. Freedom roads is owned by camping world. Funny thing is I was scheduled to test drive a $372000 motorhome tomorrow at camp world that I was interested in buying. A $300 microwave cost them the sale of anything to me.

NO DON'T buy extended warranty. Ps, I have never used this warranty in the entire 5 years I had it.
