Fourteen hours later, and still no response from anyone!

Sorry, I know nothing about FCPP. However, when it comes to buying extended warranties, I always advise to 'tread cautiously'. Many extended warranties are not worth the paper they're written on, and the number of auto warranty companies that have gone bankrupt in the last few years has turned a lot of people off the idea.

Here's a few links for you ...
And Google will give you a whole lot more;
Hope some of that ^ helps,

Default Extended warranty

We just purchased a new r.v. and got the warranty on the finish of the unit. If we do not make a claim on it in 6 yrs. we get the whole amt back. we also got the warranty on the unit itself. [I] am not sure of the company or the price as we have not brought it home yet. The warranty does not kick inuntil we drive it off the lot. Piker

Good luck in 6 years. I suspect the fine print will dictate something other than a full refund. No company is going to cover people for free. Being that most of these warranty companies are independant from the RV place how are they making money if only those that make a claim have to pay. If something seems too good to be true it usually is.

Put away the money you'd spend on an extended warranty and use that to cover any repairs after the regular warranty period is up. Generally most stuff will go early (appliances, leaks etc) if its going to go and therefore is covered by the standard RV warranty. Take a very close look at what the extended warranty will actually cover and keep in mind you'll have to prove things like wear and tear damage as opposed to faulty equipment. I've known too many people who have paid big money for warranties only to have claims turned down on account of anything under the sun. Once these companies have your money they are in the drivers seat and they know it. Don't like it...sure you can spend 10k in court to TRY to get your 2k back or a 2k claim honored.

One other thing to keep in mind is that warranties rarely cover labor and often times that that cost eclipses the parts costs so an extended warranty at best may only cover a fraction of any repair bills.

Just some thoughts

I deal with f.c.p.p on a daily basis in car and truck industry, they are fine to deal with, if you get a detailed list of whats covered and not, get the plan # from the dealer, and call them, they will give you a list of whats exactly covered, and whats not,

heres the # 1-800-381-2580

i talk to them all the time, and for the most part, they will cover just about anything, depending on the type of plan you purchase.
treat your girl right...or i will.

The warranty company is good FCPP. I have even seen many customers get their money back when they haven't used the warranty over the full term.

The cost of the plan does cover parts and labour. Its a common sense warranty if it doesn't work they fix it. If you broke it too bad. Lots of stuff to go wrong in an RV, plumbing, electrical, appliances etc. Each time you take it out it has an earth quake inside. Things happen when these things bounce down the road. You chose what works for you. It is good piece of mind.
