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?
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.
