Had a store try to sell me a warranty for a $1.79 audio cord. I said no, as I've said to all extended warranties.
The Applecare for this Mac would have cost me almost $300. I've had one repair at a cost of $100 ( Applecare would have expired by now ).
It is unlikely you will have to replace the fridge again for a very long time. If you maintain the bearings, you won't need to replace them either ( mine are original to the trailer and 7 years old ).
Extended warranty works for Sam.

I find the GS extended warranty may be good for a motorized rv but the cost is high for a tow behind. ETI covers the trailer for 2 years and you can get extended on the refer/furnace/a/c for less than the premium. Wheel bearings, brakes, tires are normal wear and tear items.

never in doubt, often wrong

Had my last trailer for 8 years, not half as well built as the Escape. In that time, other then yearly maintenance issues and not including the roof leak that took out the floor, I only had my converter go bad. Cost about $200 to self replace. For $752/year I'd self insure.

The floor would have run about $3k to replace, I did it myself for $400 and 3 weeks worth of time. Even had I paid $3k, I would have come out ahead using your insurance figure.
Happy Motoring
