Thumbs down Brand new FR3 issues

Howdy, We were just wondering if anyone else has had any problems getting work done on their Forrest River units. We bought a brand new FR3 in March of this year and found a list of things wrong with our FR3 and have yet to have all these problems fixed or addressed.
1 windshield leaking.
2 Front stereo speaker with extra parts in it that are rattling
4 5 different trim pieces falling off
5 Kitchen shade crooked when pulled down
6 bent window tracks
7 scratched fridge door
8 broken dinette seat back
9 bedroom drawer not closing properly
10 bedroom closet door not closing properly
11 leveling jack foot fell off somewhere on the highway
12 screen door warped
13 hole in screen of screen door
14 we bought a new 800 dollar queen size mattress only to get the rv and find that the 2015's now have a king size bed
15 metal shavings falling from the front overhead bunk onto the dash area
16 the roof has a spot where a cross member has come loose and now there is a soft spot with staples or nails noticeably pushing up from under the rubber roof and has only gotten worse since we have had the unit.

Any words of advice or discussion would be appreciated...just hoping that we have not made a BIG mistake in with this purchase.

Welcome to the forum. Doesn't sound like your dealer did a very good job prepping your FR3. Alot of your list is pretty obvious things like the hole in the screen door. Just how many of these things were visible during the PDI and why didn't you have the dealer fix the issues before you signed away. Have you contacted dealer with your list?
