Thanks for those posts. Just got a 5th wheel and it has a 2 year Extraride warranty. Didn't know much about them now I feel better about it.

I have had one on my last two trailers and my current Diesel Pusher. I buy all of my rvs at about the 3-5 year old mark and I have gotten more than my monies worth on the extended warranties! On my DP, I still have two years of warranty time and it has already paid $5000.00. I originally paid right at 7k, but that also included 5 years of Coach Net and 5 years on the tires. Thus far, my warranty company has been excellent and I seleep better knowing I have it.

Please advise as this is my first M/H and its a new experience.
Thank you for your in put.

Hi Greg, I read several of the answers to your question. If you have a big problem, and PROVIDED IT IS COVERED ( MOST ARE NOT) then maybe its worth while. It is an insurance policy. The exclusions are many. Example; A broken fan belt causes the engine to overheat and causes serious problems. Belts are not covered and this is what caused the problem, so your problem is not covered. These people are like a casino, they are not in business for you to be the winner. I am a former car salesman, someone told you to buy through the dealership... Why??, its so the dealership can make a nice commission. Save your money, pay for repairs as you go, why pay in advance. Remember, its just like going to the casino. You win some and you loose some, but for me and my 1999 coach, we will pay as we go. good wishes, old trucker

I guess some people are having problems like described by Old trucker, but I have never encountered that. With three different companies, and three different RVs, each of my repairs have been covered.

I am no lawyer, but I have taken the time to read my contracts and none have had those types of exclusions, or at least I have not discovered them from experience. My contracts clearly state what they will and will not repair. I do have a sense that I must be able to provide proof of maintenance in case something major happens.

Can someone explain where these exclusions might be embedded in the contract? I hve not yet delt with a major engine or tranny issue, but I have had the diesel generator out three times now and the Turbo worked on, with no arguements. I bought mine from the dealer and must return to them if within 100 miles. I am not certain that I would go that route again, but I would consider another contract with my next "used" RV.

Regards,

Dave

I have the Cornerstone Extended service contract. My basement air duct behind the rear cap of the motor home split. I was able to crawl under the motor home and use a flash lite to verify the problem with the ductwork. The result was that the basement air was not cooling the coach. I called the RV dealer (General RV, Brownstown Michigan) and explained the problem. They contacted Cornerstone. Cornerstone authorized and paid for the repairs. The cost to me was $100 (the deductible) . The dealer had to remove the rear fiberglass cap to make the repairs and the total cost was just a bit shy of $1200.

That one repair has just about paid for the policy I took out.

Our DSDP is now 10 years old (11 model years). If I had bought a seven year service policy we'd have gotten no benefit from it. No out of warranty repairs after the three year factory warranty expired and the refer (which might have been covered) didn't go out till 9 years old.
Did buy one on a used '97 Jeep GC, again, no repairs needed. Did have an alternator go out which destroyed the battery, but the service policy had expired by then.
