Adventures in Wyoming – Part III

All the data is in. The wheel bearings on the left front wheel on the RV failed. That failure caused a cascade to a variety of other related systems. The repair place went to extreme efforts to communicate with our Extended Warranty company only to find out that only the initial failure, the wheel bearings, is a coverable repair. They will cover a whole $305.75 which, with our deductible, means they will pay $105.75 of close to $3800 in repairs. The only good news is that we will be able to request reimbursement for hotel/food expenses.

We still hope to be back on the road towards Utah on Friday.

Word of advice from the recently learned……DO NOT BUY EXTENDED WARRANTY COVERAGE! It is a complete waste of money!

  1. I remember well my Mom paying for an extended warranty for close to 20 years on a garage door opener. We had to fight to get them to replace the broken one even after they admitted they no longer made parts to repair the original one. She paid in premiums enough money to buy several garage door openers. Guess it is called planned obsilescence. Hope all goes well on your journey.
