What is an Extended Service Contract and Why Should You Get One

Purchasing an RV is a big deal and at Lichtsinn RV we want to help you every step of the way – from identifying your travel needs to matching you with your dream coach. This support continues into the business office.

In or before your closing, one of our business managers will offer you an extended service contract. Your immediate reaction could be to skip it, but that gut reaction could end up being a very costly mistake.

The simple fact is: RV breakdowns happen. And when they do, it’s expensive! Investing in an RV protection product like an RV extended warranty could save you big down the road. However, it’s important to understand what exactly you’re purchasing.

What is an extended service contract?

What is commonly referred to as an RV service contract is a form of mechanical breakdown protection. Lichtsinn RV works with a well-known extended service contract provider to provide you with complete protection for your home on the road. This service contract extends the 12-month/15,000-mile basic limited warranty from Winnebago to 5 years or the number of miles to match your engine coverage.

Lichtsinn RV offers comprehensive coverage for both NEW and PREOWNED RVs covering the motor vehicle components – like the engine, suspension, and electrical and the home comfort systems like the water system, refrigerator, air conditioner, generator and more.

The business office team at Lichtsinn RV wants to help you protect your investment from costly, unexpected repair and replacement costs down the road. Without the extended service contract, you could end up paying for costly repairs out of pocket.

Protect Yourself from these Unexpected Repair and Replacement Costs –

  • Engine: $7,985 to $44,416
  • Transmission: $4,043 to $12,696
  • Refrigerator: $2,428 to $14,503
  • Air Conditioner: $1,892 to $8,344

The costs above are representative potential repair costs that can be expected over the duration of your ownership. Actual costs will vary by make and model.

If you have any questions about RV service contracts and whether your RV is eligible, please contact the Lichtsinn RV Business Office at 641-585-3213.
