New AC and extended warranty
While en route to store our 2008 Safari(but purchased in April of 2009) in Arizona from the Oregon Coast, we discovered near Twin Falls Idaho that our AC didn't cool and the heat pump had quit working(heating)
Knowing that I'd be in Arizona I contacted an RV repair shop in Kingman to look at it after checking that they were an authorized dealer and repair facility.
We have an extended warranty from United States Warranty and I also called them and gave them the numbers and got a pre-authorization to have it repaired. The Dometic warranty had expired three months before.
The extended warranty covered the cost of the new unit, but didn't cover shipping, a new thermostat, labor, or tax. My part of the $1700 repair came to almost $500.
I guess I'm glad they covered the 1188 for the new unit, but I feel they should have stepped up for labor and shipping too. The new thermostat they said was not damaged but they would not pay to retrofit an old thermostat with a new AC. Was I taken advantage of by the shop or the warranty company? We paid $1500 up front for the warranty, so it almost paid for itself with the new AC, but how do you replace an AC system if it is not shipped, or the labor is not paid, I live in Oregon and we have no sales tax.
