Keep in mind, I'm not an extended warranty kind of person. About the single most expensive item on my trailer to replace will be the refrigerator. I was offered a extended warranty from Dometic to extend my coverage for 3 more years. The price is reasonable. So I went on their website and looked at the "fine print". It requires an annual inspection. My trailer is almost 2 years old and I have yet to do this. It looks like a fairly extensive inspection and should take about an hour. Of course I have to pay for that and labor in my neck of the woods is in the $100.00 an hour range. So now the cost of the warranty just went up about $300.00 for the cost of the inspections. Now the final cost will be about 1/2 the cost of a replacement. I will need to show proof of these to collect on the warranty. Anybody else do this? Whatya think?

Ihad the same reaction that you did when you read the fine print. Not for me.
It is like the fine print on a lot of extended warrenties for your Motor Home, They require that you change your oil at 3000 miles or every 6 months. That's not resonable if you store your RV for 6 months in the winter time. You miss the 6 month change and then when you have a claim and they deney it because you missed the oil change, even if the claim is for an unrelated part. So you got to read the fine print like you did.
