Good thing Meandering told CW where the leaks were, or CW would bill for repairing other items not related to the problem, then find the real problem and charge for that too.

Wife's body work most expensive repair. If you are talking RV, I had to replace the hydrolic line on my rear slide. It had to be ordered and the bed had to be removed and a hole cut into the bottom to get to the connection. It was $1300. The old hose was too long and the installer just stuck it between two pieces of frame and over 6 years it rubber through. A 25 cent electrical tie would have prevented it. It is a 2004 Itasca 33V.

Over the last 20 years, the most expensive failures have been tire replacements due to blowouts. I don't count those though; tires are an expendable and if I had replaced them earlier, there would not have been a failure. The next most expensive was a bearing failure that caused the wheel to fall off the trailer. Cost some $900, but Lippert picked up the total expense. All other failures/defects were less than $100 apiece. There were not all that many of these.

BTW, a service contract would have been a TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY.....

$3100.00 for new tires in Canada on my way to Alaska with my newly purchased 09 Safari. Tires looked good when I picked it up but by the time I hit Edmonton had cords showing. The only reason I consider this an expensive repair bill is the same tires at home in AK would have been $1300.00. Hope their life is equal to their price.
