Rating RV Warranty Companies

Is there anywhere where one might find an objective rating of the various RV warranty companies? I'm not the least bit interested in hearing from those who say to self-insure, only from those who have a policy and can recommend either for the company or against it. Also would be interested in any articles in newspapers or magazine that would do the same thing.

For info on financial stability of the insurance companies who back the extended service contracts go to Weiss Ratings. Don't bother with checking Fitch, Best, etc. as they are paid shills of the insurance companies.

I have looked for but never found any comparative info on extended warranty (service) policies. It's often even difficult to figure out who underwrites them and when most people say I have an XYZ warranty plan they are usually naming the broker they bought it from rather than the insurer behind it.

I had an RV Shield plan that expired last November. They lost money on me. Never had any real difficulties with them, though once I got a bit frustrated over a delay in approval that I thought was unnecessary. But I can't find any offering from RV Shield online any more and I would not do business with Warranty Experts (the broker from whom I bought it) again either.
