Tks for ERS answers

I'm the guy who asked about ERS associted with CW. Thanks for answers, and I'll finish research and purchase. Just ERS, not the warranty part.
Someone said for towing check my ins policy. I do have it and its $1.00 per year. Anyway, as a newbee my biggest concern is roadside breakdowns. If I go down, I want a phone number to call - for peace of mind of nothing else. Instead of searching the web for the nearest place for help.
My biggest roadside concern is a flat. My home has no spare. It may in a year of two, but not today. I'm going to get the 4 corners weighed, buy a good 110v compressor, and inspect the tires visually and for pressure every travel day.
Guess there is not much else to do.

Am I crazy or on track.

As was mentioned earlier, I would check with my insurance company/agent to ensure that (1.) the towing coverage includes RVs and (2.) the conditions, limitations and financial caps aren't so limited that you'll wind up paying most of the bill out of pocket to get to a qualified service facility.

I'm not an Affinity Group flag-waver, but that's why we keep our Good Sam ERS coverage up to date.

Just make sure you get a small compressor that can inflate the tires to the required pressure. How old are your tires? If your RV has been sitting for quite a while they may not be as good as they look. Check the DOT date code stamped on the sidewalls (usually it's turned to the inside). Make sure your $1 service actually covers towing and tire service on the road, otherwise, there are several decent RV road service packages out there.
You're not quite crazy yet, but given some time around these crowds, you'll fit in eventually with the rest of us.

I have had nothing but good experiences with my two local CW's. They have finished the work, on time and as promised.

When something comes on sale, I call and ask if they have the item. If they do not, they check to see if another store does, and brings it to my store for pick up. I pay, over the phone, and therefore receive the sale price. Even if the item arrives after the sale is over.

I called the Wilsonville store and talked to the manager about if he knew if the awnings would go on sale, this spring, like they did last spring. He said that the stores do not know when Corporate will start sales and too many times, they do not a lot of stock, of the sale items, and so are out when people come in looking.

He told me to do what I was already doing. Call just as soon as I know an item that I want is on sale and they will hold it for me and I come in on the weekend. Can't ask for more than that. Maybe my two CW's are the exception. I do not know as they are the only ones that I have been to.

I have tried two local RV places and they can not meet the prices and while they may have it in stock, will be charging 40 - 50% more. With those prices, I will stick by CW until I have a reason not to.

johnandcaren I have Good Sam Extended Warranty and Camping World Roadside Assistance. My transmission went out in Alpine TX. We got towed to a shop in Odessa, TX, tow charge would have been $850., our cost $0. Transmission repair $2,500, our cost $250 for the deductable. I would not start the Motorhome without this coverage. They will tow you to a place that CAN fix the problem, not the local gas station unlike AAA.

IMHO, CW has become the lowest common denominator in the business, and I shop there only when I absolutely have to. Man, I really like these little faces

Come on now. Give us the rest of the story. No way your cost is $0.

How many years have you been paying a yearly premium for the Good Sam Extended Warrant? And total $$$ paid to them?

Triker56, The CW Road care is about $100 per year and the Good Sam extended warranty was $900. This was our first Motorhome and even though I had a good idea that it was in good shape I didn't want to take a chance. All of this happened within the first year. Good Sam also covered a rental car, meals and a motel. However, your point is well taken and valid. We still have the same coverage on our second Motorhome and barring any major expenses we will be upside down on the coverage. Unfortunatly all insurance is like going to Vegas. I don't mind putting the up front to gain a little piece of mind.

Camping World...

I never had any major work done at Camping World. I have to say that they are GREAT because I entered a Sweepstakes and won a $40,000 5th wheel from Camping World! I never went to pick it up. As soon as it arrived at the dealership they had a buyer. I sold it right off the lot in Mesa, AZ because I already had a Class A coach. So, YEAH CAMPING WORLD!!! Joe

RV insurance is no different than any other. How many years did or do you have insurance on your stick house or on your car or life insurance? How many decades have you paid on that? I won't say how many that I have but with my house I have never (knock on wood) had a claim and only twice on the car.

If you look at it on how long paying premiums vrs. cost of actual claim-- with most of us, the insurance company is the winner.

However, my mindset is that it is there if I need it and it is always possible that I will have a claim that makes those premiums pale in comparison.

It's just like Vegas, the odds are always with the 'house' or in this case, the insurance company.

The consensus seems to be that CW's extended warranty is pricey, but they do a good job paying up. That's a good thing for those who want the peace of mind vs expensive repairs. I don't have any extended warranties, because I believe in self-insuring most stuff. I vote with the money-in-the-jar crowd, but I'm happy for all of you in the other camp as well. I think it is an emotional issue as well as financial, and that's valid. My 2 cents

You probable mean warranty service policy not RV Insurance.

I have paid many years in the past for S&B insurance and many decades for vehicle insurance.
I beg to differ with you that they are no different then warranty service.

The main reason for the money I spent on insurance for the house & vehicles was called LIABILITY.

Liability insurance was to protect all that money I had in the bank saved and any other assets I had, from not buying any warranty service on appliances, vehicles or anything.

Also many have insurance on their S&B & vehicles because the loan and mortgage companys require it.
And vehicle insurance is required in most state to register them to get plates.

Warranty service is not a required insurance.
But does make some feel good to have it. And nothing is wrong with that.
