From the RV Repair Tips series
What a fellow RV technician said to me: An owner gives us a list of repairs to be done and hands us an extended warranty contract and says to fix it all because everything is covered bumper to bumper, then goes nuts when he/she finds out something is not covered. Extended Warranties have limits on what they can repair.
My thoughts: OK THIS ONE'S HUGE! I totally agree with this and there are so many things an owner doesn't realize when they purchase the warranty, I'm not even sure I can list them all, but here's a few:
NOTE: I'm in no way saying extended warranties are bad, I just wish the dealerships selling them were more up front about what is covered. This is made even harder when an owner is being sold the warranty while in a finance office of a dealership being pressured to add it into his or her financing. Remember, the person selling the contract is normally receiving a GOOD commission for selling it to you.
