When RV owners are in the market for a warranty for their vehicle, they often ask two questions. First they ask, “How much will I pay for repairs?” Next, they want to know how a warranty works—how do they use the service? The two questions are connected, so we’ll take a look at how customers apply their warranty to repairs. In doing so, we’ll give a thorough answer to the question of cost. Easy To Use While warranty contracts are complicated, a warranty is easy to use. For customers, the process is simple and straightforward. It needs to be, since RVs break down often—the majority of RVs will suffer a major breakdown within five years of purchase. A warranty not only makes repairs less expensive, it also makes them more convenient. Think about it: no haggling, no shopping around for the best price, no worrying if you’re paying too much…

Extended RV Warranty

GET A QUOTE RV Clubs have been around almost as long as the motorhome itself, and for decades they have brought RV enthusiasts together and saved them money. Full-timers and veteran travelers often join clubs to save money on campground stays and RV-related costs. For those who live in their RVs year round, campground savings alone can add up to thousands of dollars each year, especially when RVers prefer luxury parks with additional amenities. Not all organizations are the same, though. Each club offers different perks and discounts, and membership costs range from small monthly fees to thousands of dollars for multi-year memberships. Some clubs only operate in certain areas of the country, whereas others are truly nationwide. Some provide a total RV experience, while others focus on campground discounts or access to private campground networks. ALL-PURPOSE RV CLUBS These organizations are what most people imagine when they hear the…

Winterize Your RV

As the temperatures drop, your RV needs a little extra protection from the cold. Water expands when it freezes, which can lead to leaking or burst pipes in your RVs water supply or drain lines. The main objective of winterizing is to replace the water in your lines with antifreeze, which will remain in liquid form even at very low temperatures.  RV repair facilities will professionally winterize your RV for you, but you can save money by doing it yourself. For this project, you’ll need: A few gallons of marine/RV antifreeze—exact amount varies by make and model A water-heater bypass kit if not already installed A cleaning wand (see #2 below) Water pump converter kit or tubing to connect to pump inlet valve Hand tools to remove drain plugs Step 1: Remove or Bypass Water Filters An RV owner’s first step is to remove or bypass any inline water filters…

RV Warranty Cost

For recreational vehicle owners seeking the ultimate peace of mind for their home-away-from home, an extended warranty makes a lot of sense, and the internet contains numerous articles detailing the benefits of warranty coverage. But for those researching warranty plans, one question remains largely unanswered: “How much does an RV warranty cost?” Unfortunately, there is no simple answer. The cost for coverage varies wildly, which is why RV warranty companies ask RVers for information about their rig before providing a quote. Warranty prices can range from the $1,000s for a short-term travel-trailer plan to $20,000 with some companies for a top-of-the-line, high mileage motorhome. Several major factors affect the price of an RV Warranty: Type of RV – Motorhomes (Class A,B, or C) are more expensive than towable RVs like 5th wheels, toy haulers, and travel trailers. Make/model – Generally, the more expensive the RV, the more expensive the coverage.…

A lot can happen on the open road. Adventure, spontaneity, the unexpected—these are reasons many people choose to purchase an RV and see the country. Unfortunately, the unexpected isn’t always good. Sudden breakdowns or accidents can put the brakes on your travel plans and empty your bank account.  RV Insurance and RV extended warranties are the inverse of each other, providing separate and complementary protection based on the reason for repairs. Simply put, insurance covers damage caused by accidents and other events, while warranties cover mechanical failures and wear-and-tear. But there’s more to it than that. RV Insurance An RV insurance policy functions similarly to car insurance. Motorhomes, whether they are Class A, B, or C, require the same amount of minimum liability auto insurance as a car to drive legally on the road. Liability insurance has a specific function: if you cause an accident, the insurance company covers the…

GET A QUOTE When buying an extended warranty, the options can be overwhelming. The different policies and add-ons can confuse RV owners, leaving them unsure how the plan saves them money. Nothing seems simple about finding the right warranty plan. Warranties are complex, but they’re straightforward. With a little information, it’s easy to understand. Warranties assist with repair costs when an item suffers mechanical breakdown. Where plans differ is in which items they cover. There are two main categories of extended warranties: Exclusionary policies and inclusionary policies. They may offer similar coverage, but they do so in different ways. Exclusionary Coverage Exclusionary policies are the most comprehensive plans offered for RV extended warranty coverage. They are also the simplest policies to understand. An exclusionary policy lists the items that are not covered under the policy, and anything not listed under the exclusions is covered. America’s RV Warranty offers the Complete…
