Warranty

I am thinking about pushing for a law in Louisiana about vehicle warranties. It seems to me that when you have a one year warranty and the trailer spends three months of that in the shop, you should not lose that three months or what ever time the trailer is in the shop. Warranty time should stop as soon as the dealer takes possession of the trailer/RV for repairs and starts again once you sign for it. Read several times on the forums where trailers/RV's sit in a shop for months waiting on parts or repairs and the owner loses all of that time. Ideas? Wasting my time?

I don't know if it would be a waste of time or not... but it sure seems to make sense to me.

The auto industry found the need for longer warranties a few decades ago and it makes sense. Unfortunately the RV industry sees no real benefit even though I think it helps Redwood sales and I think their warranty should be the very minimum offered by all companies.

You'd think with how tough the market got and how many companies closed doors they would have gotten a hint. Judging by how many people are in my local RV dealer the chance of warranties going up is nill, we keep buying anyway and then some opt to buy the extended.. so we do ourselves no favors I suppose.

I am not saying a longer warranty, just that when the trailer is in the shop that the time of the warranty does not continue to run. Ok, an example. You purchase a new trailer, go camping and find several items that need repair. You take the camper in to the dealer and it sits for 3 weeks await your turn at repair. Then it takes four weeks to get the parts. So basically you have lost 7 weeks of warranty while the unit was at the dealer. What I am saying is that the time clock stops when the dealer has the unit and starts again once you get it back.
