RE: Extended Warranty: Why do I need it?

Hi all, We just got approved for financing on a Fuel toy hauler with an agreed upon price OTD. The F&I gentleman just called us to tell us about the approval and the rate. Then he told me the payment and I was surprised to hear it was higher than I had expected at that rate. Of course with some probing I learned he priced in a 7 year extended warranty. I am reluctant to purchase these on vehicles in general. My understanding is dealing with warranty work on RV's is not as easy or convenient as it would be on an automobile, especially in the current supply constrained world we live in. I think no matter what 7 years is probably more than we want, but would maybe 2 or 3 years be beneficial? I've read that most major things are going to break in the first year and to expect it to be in the shop for a significant period of time in that first year. I've also read most people fix a lot of their issues because the warranty is such a pain to begin with. For these reasons I am thinking it's not worth paying for an extended warranty, but maybe I'm wrong? Thanks, Brian No,you are not wrong. If the unit is new, it usually comes with a warranty of sorts for at least 12 months. The F&I person has apparently added ($7K??)onto the original order that you signed? You need to set aside a reasonable amount of $$ each month for anticipated maintenance/repairs for what you want. Be prepared to get up and walk if they continue to play they play the numbers as you are being played with by these double talkers.

RE: Extended Warranty: Why do I need it?

You should tell the dealer that you don't want any any see if you get the agreed upon deal. You should also let them know you don't appreciate them adding to the deal. Do a good exam of the rig and get everything fixed before anything changes hands. That means tradein or deposit. Only take delivery and sign papers after all is fixed. Very well said.

RE: Do you run house AC while on the road

The below list explains when/how we have used the dash ac, coach ac, generator in our mh's. 1. When initially leaving, outside air temps determine if the dash air is turned on. 2. If needed, "always" set dash ac on Maxcool and fan speed of low, med or high. 3. Additionally, most mh's will usually have (2) fans above the windshield which usually are intended for defrosting if needed but we've found these help circulate the ac air when turned on low or med. High seemed to be a little to noisy. 4. When/if outside start going upwards,(90+) we will then turn on the generator and the front roof air to start assisting the dash air. The roof air stat is set to 70 degrees and the fan speed to manual high. Compressor will kick on/off as needed while the fan continually circulates the air throughout the coach. Whe will also use the described fan speed method for the roof air(s) when we are stationary at a park and the outside air is in the 90s. They are made to run; use them. 5. We have occasionally had to turn on a second roof air when traveling if the outside air continue rising upward. Nothing like arriving at your destination in a pre-cooled coach. 6. Fuel usage for us has been usually in the 1/2-3/4 gal range per hour with diesel generators. 7. Our yrly hr usage will regularly be 250-300hrs.

RE: What constitutes a "new" tire?

I agree/6-9 months is quite acceptable. Then do your part afterwards by taking care of them. They are new! Where is Toyo manufactured? If it's still Japan, how would you expect to find tires that are a month old? I have not looked into Toyo in many years so if they are now US built (not just distributed) I apologize! Big TOYO tire plant about 20 miles north of Atlanta. Don't know just what tire sizes are made there but its a big plant. Tires date stamped 6-9 months old are fine.

RE: sell home or not to sell

My thoughts also 100%. I recommend waiting a year before deciding whether to sell or keep the house. In the "real" world true full timing don't also work for everyone.

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

I cancelled my subscription also when it became known CW was involved with the magazine. That is my standard procedure when I find that they are involved in any way shape or form. Avoid them like the plague.
