Some dealers do that, but not all.
The large multi-location dealer in this area does not prioritize service for those who bought locally and when I tried to get service for a disabled rear view camera I was told there was a 3 month wait, even though I bought the RV from them. Given that an issue can easily completely prevent use of the RV this is a big concern for me.
One of the smaller local dealers is now touting that they belong to a nationwide organization that guarantees quick service to those who buy RVs from other dealers in that organization, and perhaps that is something to consider when buying a new RV. At least until the current glut of new RV sales ends, if it ever does.
