Fleetwood Extended Warranty

We have a Fleetwood RV 2011. Our warranty will be ending 11/11/11.
We have had problems with our cumins generator 3 times since we purchased it. Need some info on what people think of the Route 66 extended warranty or other extended warranty's

All extended warranty is just an insurance policy. Make sure you get copy of the "policy" before you sign up and read it in detail. Make sure you understand exactly what it covers and does not cover or excludes.

If you can't get a copy before hand make sure it has a 90 full refund for any reason policy so that you can review it and decide.

As previously stated, understanding the policy is critical. You must be sure you understand what the policy says. A quick read can cause you problems. My coverage is with XtraRide. They just replaced the Cooling Unit in my refer. Cost to me - $75.00. Cost to them $1500.00. Prior approval before repairs are made is required. Under my program the repair shop must diagnosis the problem, then contact the company for authorization to repair and then accept their payment. Not sure what goes on during this conversation. Not all repair shops like to or will deal with the warrenty/insurance company. Opinions about the warrenty programs are mixed. A significiant number argue against purchase of such programs. My take is that you purchase such a program to protect you against what could happen. I see it as no different than purchasing home insurance.

Check whether it is an "exlusive" (covers everything except....) or "inclusive" (lists only things that are covered )policy.

I went with United States Warranty corp of Ohio (not florida). Haven't used it bug good to work with when buying because answered my questions. Checked them out rather throughly and couldn't find any negative vibes. good luck.

Welcome to the forum! If you use our search function you'll find days of reading material on this topic and people are very divided on them but you've gotten good advice so far IMO.

We bought ours from Easy Care and couldn't be happier with them but there are horror stories on the forum about other providers so do your homework.

Many argue in favor of self insuring and that can make a lot of sense. Don't look at it as an "investment" which you expect to come out ahead on. IMO these are for peace of mind, and mine has provided that to me.
It's nice to be able to just get nearly anything that breaks on my coach fixed without having to think about how much it'll cost.

Good luck...
