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.
Now freedom roads said they need all maintenance records on my motorhome to see if I have complied with the warranty rules. All this for a microwave??

Insurance companies are sure all positive, eager, rosey to get your policy signed up and TAKE your money, but when it comes time to pay out, often try every maneuver they can to make hell for you and deny your claim. Totally frosts me.

It's like they make up the rules as they go. There's nothing in my contract that even mentions a re-inspection or a fee for it. The agent said: "That's just the way it is".

Absolutely, Insurance agents are in the business of bringing clients to the table..That is the role of everyone is sales....TO get you to buy something!

While I agree that sometimes it feels this way, and it sure feels that way when one is at the tail end of a claim denial, I'm sure there are thousands and thousands of claims processed correctly and without delay. I have had numerous claims paid (refrigerator compressor, lift pump, HWH jacks, cracked manifold, loose turbo, etc.) and a biggie denied (radiator), and they were right to deny it based on the terms of the policy I bought.

With all the "fraud" going on in this world, it is imperative that businesses hold to the letter of their agreements and verify that the policyholder has met their side of the bargain as well. It's just good business.

I believe most folks do not carefully read the policy before they buy it, and then are surprised when certain things are not covered, or documentation is required.

They finaly took the engine out so I got to see it. The #7 piston rings failed allowing oil to get into the firing chamber. The mechanic could not say why the rings failed. The walls the the #7 cylinder had lots of vertical marks. All others cylinder walls were good with no marks on the walls. They took the engine out backwards removing the drive shaft & trans.
The new engine is a long block from Ford. Came with a 3 year, 36,000 mile warrenty. New engine should be installed by this Wednesday. Will have to start tracking MPG all over. Hope to have many more miles on the MH since it's a new engine. Kind of like starting out all over. The warrenty Co was "The Choice".
You can PM me if you more info.

I got a new long block too. Even came with plugs. I think mine broke the top of the #8 piston off because the fuel pump wasn't putting out enough pressure or volume. I did get a couple lean codes, but they didn't come right back. Got a call yesterday that it is almost done.

I bought a 7 year 70k bumper 2 bumper / $0 deductible for my tow vehicle (Toyota). I did it because most of the miles would be used to tow my tt. Thank the Lord I did.

Things fixed were: Transmission electrical problem (took 3 weeks to fix), steering column, fan speed control, oxygen sensors (twice), catalytic converters twice on one side and once on the other side, muffler...Buying this Toyota policy cost $1100. It just ran out... I renewed for 3 more years at a cost of $1700, but it is prorated, so I can re-coup some of then cost when I plan to buy a new tow vehicle in a year or two....

I only bought the extra 3 years for the peace of mind....

I know the catalytic converters are warrantied for 7-8 years anyway thru the Govt, but being a 05' vehicle the catalytic converters cost $4000 a pair, and I think the one that was only replaced once is getting ready to go again....I don't think they can handle the back pressure....

Dunner.
Mine also came w/plugs, water pump & a large gismo with a oil filter attched.
Should be done next week also. Now I think about fuel cost to run it. Have to think hard about where we'll go this summer to excape to heat.

Hal, I can't imagine what the oil filter thing is. Is it just what they ship it in?

I'm not worried about fuel costs. I don't like it and think it will come down before the polls open. :wink: I more than doubled my income since I started getting SS. It all depends on what my dune buddies can afford. I may go up to Sunset Crater to get out of the heat. Bad thing is you have to come back to it. Arg...

Ok, got my Moho out of the shop. I had to pay $217 even though I was only suppose to pay a $50 deductible. The RV repair shop said the extended warranty company, freedom roads, would not pay the entire claim. I called freedom roads and they said the RV repair shop hose me down, aka ripped me off. Went back to RV repair shop and they said freedom roads ripped me off. Microwave was $205 dollars, what a stinking rip off. I think I will cancel extended warranty.

Hal, We recently bought a 2010 DP and am considering an extended warranty. Would you advise me who you signed up with please? I have a Good Sam Gold quote and one for Cornerstone RV Ultimate coverage. They appear comparable. Thanks much. Jim

We are on our second extended warranty for our 2003 Endeavor. During the first one we had a radiator go out that cost almost $6000.00 to repair. We ended up paying $1500.00 due to some upgrades that had done at the same time. The second warranty cost us about $4500.00 but compared to the cost of an engine or tranny, that is cheap money. I got our extended warranty more for the pace of mind factor then anything else. Any one priced out a new/rebuilt Cummins 8.3 lately?
We pray that we do not need the warranty but it is good to know that it is there if we do. Besides we had the money at the time to buy the warranty, we may not have the money for reapirs when on the road.

My $4.5K warranty saved me over $10K for a new V10 motor, in tank fuel pump, instrument cluster, dash AC compressor, AC dryer, expansion valve & the installation for all that.
