When I purchase my new ACE later this year I will transfer both warranties over to the MH.
The only problem I see with extended warranties is the dealers that do the work, they don't like working with EW, they like over charging you for work but the EW only allow a reasonable hours of labor. The EW says it only takes 3 ours to replace the part and the dealer wants to charge 5 hours of labor. Most of the time the EX warranty might go an extra hour of labor and maybe the dealer may except 4 hours instead of 3. But sometimes the dealer will want the customer pay our of his pocket the extra hours. In that case I would suggest going somewhere else for service.

I once had a dealer simply refuse to deal with the warranty company. Said heíd had too much trouble trying to get he required preapproval with their repeated requests for more information and too much time on hold when calling. I find that pretty easy to believe. This dealer said if I wanted him to fix it I could then request reimbursement for the repair. As it happens it doesnít work that way. If not preapproved there is no payment or appeal. That is why I selected a Good Sam plan - I figured CW couldnít back out of their own plan. But then I canceled it anyway and didnít buy one at all for my latest rig (used). Itís a gamble either way.
