Our comprehensive plan has paid for both....

Refrigerator compressor and condenser (Amanna)
Fuel Pump (Cummins)
AC (Dometic)

I am confident that they will cover all of the issues in the contract.

I have had two repairs that have been covered under my extended warranty --- one was for a leaking hydraulic hub {drives the cooling fan on my diesel} and the other was for a defective U-joint {the grease channels had not been properly formed when the piece was cast}. In both cases the extended warranty picked up the full cost {parts, labor, and replacement fluids} less my deductible. It really surprised me on the U-Joint as it is usually called a "wear and tear" item but Bill at Cummins South talked to the warranty people and they paid it. For your info, I have RV Shield and have been very pleased with them.

I bought my first RV in 1972 and have been fulltiming in motorhomes the last ten years. I have never bought an extended service plan and I am way ahead. I have never bought an extended service plan for cars, trucks, televisions or anything.

I talked to two men who bought ESPs for "peace of mind" and both have had nothing but nightmares.

Bought an extended warranty for my last coach (7 year) and while I never made a claim in the four years I owned it, the transfer clause helped me sell the Motorhome since there were three years left on it and the buyer felt better buying a used coach with some backing. Whether they are worth the money is a decision each individual has to make. I'm sure the first time you have a major problem out of warranty, you'd be glad you had it.

I bought my policy and within 6 months I needed a new AC unit and generator and thanks to the policy (no trouble with either before I bought it) I was able to get both covered. Since then I haven't needed to use it but there is peace of mind just knowing the "safety net" is there if I need it.

I purchased a Good Sam Gold Extended warranty through the dealer I purchased the motorhome from. This particular warranty is not available except through a Dealership/Good Sam Partner program. It did cost more and it's good for seven years, not sure what happens after that. I've used it twice. Once on the chassis, actually the engine and once on the coach. Haven't had any complaints as yet.

Maintenance Contracts

I went with the Good Sam’s (Not an extended policy)I also carry there Road Service it also covers all my personal vehicles. I purchased our coach from a private party and did not want to take the chance when we took our first trip. But before we took our trip the Leveling system developed issues. New power unit shortly after that the power step. Then the control box and touch pad for the Leveling System. Mine runs $800.00 a year paid quarterly with a $500.00 deductable. I really purchased it to cover drive train issues. I was thinking more on the lines blown motor or a bad transmission. I figure so far $5300.00 to $5400.00 in repairs. I paid $1600.00 in premiums and $1000.00 in deductable. I have never had an issue over claims other than the first claim. And that was because 30 days after I purchased the contract the Leveling System started acting up. All they asked was did it work before I purchased the contract and thought it was a little suspicious but did not push the issue just paid the claim. My premium has remained the same so far and I figure I’m still ahead. So far this year has been pretty good. My 6 volt coach batteries died (6 Years old) and my converter has gone south. New one should be here today I do as much of the work that I can Progressive Dynamics are good people to work with for Technical help. And that is all at my expense.

Yes, as I'm learning w/ my '03 HR DP trailing arm failure..... - when I checked extended warranty, there's a mileage limitation - I've got 90K plus and extended care seems to max at 80K(GoodSam, EasyCare) - anyone find anything different ?
