Again, if the coach is new, you have a 1 year warranty bumper to bumper and other appliances within the coach may have 2-3 year warranties.

With that said, I would hang onto your money and look at a Warranty/Service Contract at the 5 year ownership mark.
Most appliances now have a 2 yr. warranty-with conditions.

I've had an ESC on our MH, the first one paid every claim submitted, BECAUSE I had read the fine print before signing.
If one does not purchase the gaskets and seals rider, mr.tommy found out the result. No claim is paid as a result of consequential damage. Our2nd contract, no claims were submitted, so I never renewed.

I also chose not to purchase an "Extended Warranty". I was offered one by the dealership I purchased our MH from for $7000 for 7 years. Remember that it's not only your monthly payments that you have to consider but also the deductible for each claim (normally around $400) to get to your total out of pocket amount. If, God forbid, you have 10 coverable claims in those seven years, you don't get to break even until you hit the $11,000 mark in insurance payouts. Most who forego the extended warranty take the money they would have paid in premiums and put that on a monthly basis into a dedicated savings account for RV unexpected maintenance events. Hopefully you don't have to use it all, and whatever you don't use is yours. And maintaining your MH per how your manufacturer recommends is your best preventative for big unexpected events. Good luck and safe travels.
