Extended Warranty Renewal... Options?
Yeah, yeah, I know... yet another extended warranty thread. But I haven't read too many from this point of view:
May 2018 will mark 5 years since I bought this rig. As part of the purchase from Camping World (and since it was my first ever RV) I opted for the 5-year Extended Service Plan from Good Sam... which, is due to expire in May.
For the most part, it's been a good rig. A few issues, for sure, but nothing really major. That said, I have had reason to use the Plan on a few occasions, and I'm now considering options to extend the coverage another couple of years.
While I used to be pretty handy with the tools... after the spinal injury I suffered 18 months ago, I'm not nearly as able to find & repair faults as I once was because of mobility & strength issues. And as the rig ages & gets more usage, I'm sure I can expect a few more issues as I go along.
Of course, the easiest thing would be to simply go back thru Good Sam... but I have to admit I'm kinda disappointed with some of the items I've learned over the years that they don't cover. The most recent example was when the OEM front-door steps suffered a metal fatigue failure last year. Turns out they would have covered power steps in a motorhome, but not plain ole manual steps on my 5th wheel.
As such, if I'm going to shell out money for a plan again... I want one that's going to cover damn near everything on the rig: structural, electrical, mechanical, plumbing, and appliances.
I've read about Xtraride and Cornerstone here on the forum... but are there others, and what (if any) are the main differences between their coverage options?
So I guess what I'm asking is... have any of you ever renewed an extended warranty on your rigs? If so, did you opt for a different company or stay with who you had?
