Interesting, forced into yearly inspection at your cost to keep warranty! Monaco used to perform inspections free!. Does anyone find this troubling? Especially at the cost of trailer we paid! Crossroads should pre worn potential buyers before spending all the money. Your thoughts on this?

How about yearly inspections and when dealer finds sealer issues, Redwood considers them "your responsibility" even after less than a year?

Fair warning... some dealers see the inspection as a golden profit opportunity and search high/low for ways to make money. Redwood won't authorize any seal-oriented repairs after the inspection. The dealer charged me a couple hundred $ for this. They even charged to put air in my tires... Ugh

Our dealer clearly stated the requirements for maintaining the warranty prior to purchase.
To maintain the tow vehicle, or any vehiclewarranty we must perform the OEM required maintenance and inspections, at our cost. Why would the RV be any different.

Because on most quality purchases, the manufacturer stands behind the product for a least a year. I didn't install the sealer... they did. Further, Redwood has a 2/5 Warranty... My unit is only 11 months old.Edited by: 5th_Time

Yearly inspections for five years is a dealer incentive. Not covered under warranty prior to one year end and you must pay again ? Do you have an extended warranty that will fix problems after deductable that you have paid for and what does it cover? Why take it in for the 5 years if you have an extended warranty that will take care of the problems after your deductable. One should be checking these things anyway if able. Just look at what the one year required inspection looks at. Really. Three cheers for the Redwood cult.

You have some valid points.

Thanks.

My quess is, after they remove the roofing for sheeting repairs. they could do there inpection after roof re-installed and they re-sealed the unit. Should be free, right.

Lilyputz,

Did you have a problem with staples popping up or sheathing issues?

Just curious.

Dave
