Ouch, I feel for you. I never get the extended warranties for anything, but for the coach I though that it was a good idea. A broken Vane Controller housing, a broken windshield, and a new Horton fan clutch puts me at around the break-even point. Next major failure and I am ahead.

We had an extended warranty and also did well with it but we let it expire. :( Calling this a corrosion issue Maybe they would have denied the claim aanyways.
I was happy with the $ 2400 bill because the shop said that if they could not cleanly remove the actuator ( vane controller) the turbo and manifold might need replacing to the tune of $ 5000 yikes!

All I can say is better your driveway than 1,000 miles from same.

Still. No fun when it breaks down. and as others have said there is no GOOD time for a break down.

Though there is a good place to run out of gas. Yup, there is an excellent place to run out of gas.

Coasted the last few feet to the pump I did (once with my car. NEVER the motor home).

By the way this broken vane controller/ actuater has only happened to pusharound and us. 2010 allegro and a 2008 holiday rambler. Small unlucky group I guess....... common ground is we both live in cold climates. We generally travel south at Christmas and return
sometime in January. Lots of weather kicked up by the wheels I guess or maybe just defective parts...... was thinking of somehow keeping the engine warm next winter but that would just invite rodents to come chew the wiring to the actuator :(

Unfortunately it's one of those "design flaws" that doesn't show up except in rare circumstances. If they had used a flat gasket instead of an O ring style, there would not be any gap for this to occur. Then again, a flat gasket might be more prone to leaking, so everyone would be dealing with that instead. Just keep pouring money into it.
