Howdy and welcome to the forum! Congrats on the Alfa See Ya! I'm not familiar with them nor the warranty, but I'm sure someone will be along to answer your questions.

The company went out of business in 2008. They had an almost cult following and it seems RVers either love them or hate them. Delamination and electrical problems seemed to be the worst and what some think put them out of business.

Click here for a short description of the company from Money Magazine and click here for a thread on another forum that talks about the history and problems the company had (I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post a link to another forum so if the moderator deletes it, I guess I can private message you the link.

We have several friends that have See Ya's and like them a lot. There are two shops that they talk about that are dedicated to the repair, maintenance, and customization of Alfas. One is in southern California (Fontana) - Alfateers (they were founded by former employees of Alfa), and the other is in the Salt Lake City area, Charile's in Sunset Utah. You might want to contact either of those shops for specific problems that are Alfa related.

There are also several Alfa owners' groups that you can join. They have rallies and other get-togethers. Here's the main one which is a chapter of FMCA: click here

Although there isn't an Alfa owner's forum here at iRV2, there are Alfa owners forums on the internet that you can join to discuss problems and issues.

Here's a thread on iRV2 that might be of interest too: click here and here

Congratulations and safe travels.
