Default 3 year warranty from KS2 for Ecotrek batteries

KS2 has announced that they will be providing a 3 year warranty on the Ecotrek batteries, Roadtrek dealers can contact them to get warranty support. KS2 is the company that manufactures the Ecotrek batteries and is going to continue to manufacture the battery modules and provide spare parts. Some of the independent service providers, e.g., Tony Pineda in CA, also are getting parts and warranty support from KS2.

EDIT: Clarification from KS2. 3 year warranty will be on new Ecotreks they sell and will not cover existing Ecotreks already installed in vans...

I don’t have a link. One of the members on the Roadtrek and Hymer Owners Group contacted KS2 and got the info directly from them...

Join that group and you can see the emails...

If I had to guess, I would guess that he uses a contract electronics manufacturing company to do the actual build of the Ecotreks. Could also use contract electronic design engineers or do that part himself. He may be a one person company...

In any case, there has been a clarification that KS2 will only be providing a 3 year warranty on new Ecotreks they sell, not on existing Ecotreks already installed in vans. They will provide the parts needed to repair Ecotreks. I wouldn’t be surprised if they will also provide the parts needed to upgrade existing Ecotreks to the newer version.

As near as I can tell it is a very small (maybe one person who contracts out a lot of the actual work) company that does a little bit of everything based on their website. At this point, I think the Ecotrek production consists of sourcing parts from China, getting the boxes made somewhere, getting other parts fabricated, and assembling the module. Not really much to it and probably not something that requires a lot of debt for the company. Obviously the total number of Ecotreks being produced will reduce if RT goes under but there should be a higher profit margin on the ones produced going forward since they will be direct sales to dealers or service centers with them keeping the Erwin Hymer mark up if they keep the price as high as it was. I would think it would be relatively lucrative business for as long as there are Ecotreks out there to be serviced.
