75-1221. Warranty by manufacturer; terms. Each mobile home and recreational vehicle manufacturer shall issue with each new mobile home or recreational vehicle a warranty generally in use in the industry warranting such mobile home or recreational vehicle to be free from material defects and to be manufactured in a workmanlike manner.
Such warranty shall be to the buyer or the buyer's assignee in interest and shall set forth in writing the following terms:
(a) That the mobile home or recreational vehicle has been manufactured in conformity with the code.
(b) That the mobile home or recreational vehicle is free from any defects in design, materials or workmanship.
(c) That the manufacturer shall take appropriate corrective action at the site of the mobile home or in the case of recreational vehicle, at the nearest authorized service center or at the place of manufacture, whichever is closer, in instances of defects in materials or workmanship which become evident within one (1) year from the date of delivery of the mobile home or recreational vehicle to the buyer, if the buyer or the buyer's assignee in interest gives written notice of such defects to the manufacturer at his or her business address not later than one (1) year after the date of delivery: Provided, however, That in the case of a recreational vehicle, such warranty shall not extend to the chassis or running gear manufactured and supplied by another manufacturer.
Such warranty shall be in addition to and not in derogation of any other rights and privileges which such buyer may have under any other law or instrument. The manufacturer shall not require the buyer to waive his or her rights under this act and any such waiver shall be deemed contrary to public policy and shall be unenforceable and void.
