I've read thread after thread about folks with the Good Sam ESP.. Majority of the threads and replies urge folks to not invest. But i've also seen the expense a lot of people have paid and they seem to be very high.
I got a quote from Good Sam for my TT, and it ranges from $355-650 for 3 year premium (depending on deductible chosen). I'm familiar with the fine print - but in doing the math, if i lose a slide out motor or AC unit, the premium has already paid for itself.
We're a little nervous with Cruiser as its my first Cruiser rig - and we've had quite a few things repaired on it that would have been very pricey. We're considering jumping on this, but curious if any of you have had one for your TT specifically, and what your experiences were..?
I recently sold a MH that had the GS Extended Warranty and the tire/wheel protection. I turned all the info to my dealer. My question is how long does it take to get a refund and does anyone have any contact numbers.
It has been about 6 weeks
In the past forty plus years I have when buying a new RV purchased the extended warranty which cost several thousand more. From what Good Sam is telling me, it only cost about seventy dollars a month or I can buy quarterly or yearly.
They are telling me that there is no big out lay of cash or a lump sum in the end. What is everyone's thoughts on this and what are your experience dealing with GS on repairs, payouts, and do they drop or raise you after a few claims? This would be on a 2007 Keystone Copper Canyon.
Thanks guys, appreciate any info good or bad.
OK, the A/C dies the first day out of a 68 day trip. Buy a big fan at Wally World and live thru it as no place can get you in within a couple of weeks anyplace even if you wanted to do a major modification to your plans.
Get home and take 5er in to Camping World. Ask them to fix the A/C and a few other things.
The few other things don't get covered as it turns out because "in the fine print" it says blah, blah, blah and this is how WE mean that.
And, the A/C is cranking out about 8% of what it should be so it really has not had a "failure" - nothing mechanical wrong with it. HUH?
OK, think we did get thru getting a new upper unit OK. But, guess what? The new Dometic is not compatible with the thermostat you have so you need a different circuit board and that is replacing an obsolete part and you need to read the "fine print". Not covered.
So I get a new unit but it will not work unless I shell out the bucks to either get a new thermostat or the board to make it work I ask? Yup, you got it, he says.
Oh, BTW, shipping of the new A/C is not covered. You get to pay that as well.
Why, in God's name, do I continue to have an extended warranty with GS or anyone (would imagine they are all the same).
There, now I feel better! :-)
We purchased our plan/contract, at time of purchase from Camping World RV sales. We are quite pleased with our contract issuer. They have been straightforward and prompt to review and pay valid claims. If we are allowed, we will purchase a new contract plan when this one expires.
I got a call this morning (half asleep) in response to my enquirees about this. Here is what I understand
Unit is a new TT worth about 30K currently covered by storage insurance.
1) pricing seems very reasonable I believe they quoted me $150 a year with a $500 deductable
2) covers replacement if it is written off or destroyed in a fire etc?
3) cover repair of problems like slide, fridge, etc
4) Does it cover leak damage?
5) Apparently I can suspend it temp with 30 days notice. An advantage since it will be in Mexico 4 months a year and not covered anyway, except by Mexican insurance
6) Apparently it is US residents only and I live most of the year in Canada, but I have a US mailbox (I live right on border), so they said that is OK.
Right now I have insurance on my current RV which does not cover things like appliances or leaks etc. It does cover if I write it off or a tree falls on it, etc. i pay pretty close to what Good Sam is quoting, so Good Sam seems like a much better deal. On both RV's I have to purchase liability from my regular insurer which in my case is ICBC.
Anyone that can provide more insight?
