New to " iRV2"

Hi all, just purchased a 2006 Winne Outlook 29' C. A couple of questions.

a, the dealer wants to seal the exterior with a "Resistall" sealant. seems like snakeoil to me for a lot of cash. Wouldn't it just be better to wax the body annually instead for a whole lot less?

b,also wants to sell me an all inclusive extended warranty for 3500.00 and in five years if I don't use it I get 2500.00 back. Why not sell me the warranty for 700.0 and then I'll use it.

I think it must be a way for them to pay the light bill or something.

1) I don't know anything about "Resistall".

2) Only you can decide what a $3,500 extended warranty is worth. If you don't use it and get $ back it might be worth the peace of mind having it. If you do use it and it saves more than $3,500 it would be a bargain.

Anyway ... someone smarter than I will probably answer your questions. You have come to the right place. Welcome to the forum.

Every related guide to protecting one's rv recommends waxing your ride every six months to insure longevity. I feel this is the correct procedure, IMHO! I have an extended warranty, fortunately have not had to use it. Be sure to study exactly what the extended warranty excludes. Most are written in legal fashion making it hard to decipher what is and what is not! Even had my attorney read it his conclusion was"maybe" ok? There are so many opinions regarding warranties on this forum many have benefited from them. The return on your monies sounds great, mine sure does not offer this option.

Hi and

a) Wax it

b) If you decide to look into an extended warranty look for an exclusionary policy with a consequential damages rider, stay away from inclusionary policies.

Wholesale Warranties brokers such policies.

Hi joecoolermn and Welcome to the Forum!

I recommend you resist all offers for exterior sealants and carefully read the fine print on any extended warranty. If the dealer goes out of business (or changes their name, or sneezes), who will pay you back the $2500?

Enjoy your new Winnie and Happy Camping!

I found this on the Resistall:

http://www.ctpc.com/products/resista...tion-products/

The warranty is up to you, check out the company that is writing the paper, check their rating, have your local or trusted insurance agent or somebody in the business check them out. It does give peace of mind, especially if its bumper to bumper. But, like all insurance, it's betting you won't have to use it......

The Resistall is similar to the product I used and put on myself, called Poly Glow, on the exterior walls of the coach.

Here's a link and it's only about 120.00 but lots of prep work. If you aren't into it, go with the Resistall.....

And lastly:

WELCOME!

wax often is the answer. It keeps you up close and personal with the rig.
Extended warrenties are the snake oil, IMHO. But that said you better be able to turn a wrench.
