Hi! I am looking into the pros and cons of different companies who provide warrenties and/or continued service plans for Class A MH. Has anyone had any experiences with any of these companies, who might offer some advice on which direction to take?

We have CSP - so far have only used it to have a jack rebuilt. So I guess one can say we are happy with it - so far.

If you do a search (find) on the subject you will find there has been some good discussion/post on the subject.

Good luck in your search.

AS it has been stated " The big print giveth and the fine print taketh away". Seriously you will need to not only have to read the contract as to what is and is not covered but anyone that is performing any repairs will also. The reason is that there are key works used that must either be used or kept from being used. If a repair facility uses a word incorrectly as to a componet discription and it is a non covered issue the extended warranty company will deny the claim. Once you have a good understanding then most will honor the policy. Some of the most popular are National, Easy Care, CPS, Heritage; there are many more I can't remember the names. Always ask your service provider to contact YOU FIRST before requesting the extended warranty company. This way you can audit the verbage being used to file for a claim. Have a copy of the policy in hand when you bring the coach in and when they call you on teh phone so you can reffer to it and pay attention to the key words. You may as the servicer to use for example the word Bracket instead of the word brace. One is covered the other is not. Good luck and enjoy the hunt!

TO' All,RE; Extended Warranty's.

Currently have CSP and premium due 4/3/06,and it has a $250.00 deductible.
quarterly or annually.
Warranty Experts is a 3 or 4 year
I've been looking at Warranty Experts, $100.00 deductible, exclusionary policy, it tells you what it does,nt cover and it covers awnings which CSP does'nt.

CSP is a 3 year policy that can be paid quarterly annually , but Warrany Experts total cost is paid in lump sum or over 3 months, so you've spent in my case $3,600.00 or $4,800.00 for 36 or 48 month coverage.

The Warranty Experts seems to cover a lot more and a copy of coverage is available by contacting;;

Warranty Experts.com

I just took delivery of new toad and took GM's extended because the dealer does all contacting and it seems to be a continuation of new car warranty and in my case I took 70,000 miles or 84 months at $2,500..00 cost. I waS GETTING THAT OUT OF way before dweeling on moho, so I'm researching.

Any further info, paticularly, experiences with extendeds would be very helpful, good or bad.

Awaiting the great IRV2 responses as are others.

Thanks== Aime=== AJBJRVERS

I have had Good Sams extended warranty now for 6 yr on two different rigs. On the few claims I had on the old rig they were great each time with no hassel. Also found them to be the cheapest overall

I got an extended warranty through RV Protection.net. The underwriter is American Guardian Warranty Co. It has a $200 deductible (I only wanted protection from BIG bills) and thus a relatively low price. It's an exclusion type warranty, i.e. it covers everything except specifically excluded items. That's generally better than inclusive warranties, which list only the included items and everything else is not covered. Less surprises that way. I've made only one claim (for repairs to dashboard a/c) and it went through without a hitch, even though part of the problem was a faulty repair from a previous time taht wa done under factory warranty.

With any extended warranty (repair insurance), you have to read what is covered VERY CAREFULLY and pay strict attention to claim procedures. You won't get any slack, so be extremely careful to follow the process and get pre-pprovals when specified.

I have been looking at all your suggestions, thanks for the input....I just hope I don't need the services. I have a policy now, I have read the small print, I will see how well they do, if I ever need them, and I will post feedback on their service. There is not much difference in what the different companies offer, you can get most anything if you want to pay for it. The test comes when you have a claim, so I will have to wait and see. Again thanks!

There are huge problems with this www.warrantyexperts.com

Buyer beware and use caution here are some important links.

http://badbusinessbureau.com/reports...Off0258367.htm

http://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/warranty-expe...warranty-c26779.html

seems to be an ongoing thing.

I have also learned by making calls this company has been terminated from numerous warranty companies.

Don't be fooled.
