Sanibel 3600 - too much flexing in front of RV

We purchased a new Sanibel 3600 last July and have taken 3 trips so far. We love the RV but have had some issues that should have been found before leaving the factory. To date we had the bedroom door (stain on the glass) and exterior door (warped) replaced, and a new air conditioner. Our latest problem is the paneling / trim in the front right corner on the closet started bulging and coming apart . The dealer tried fixing the problem but it reappeared as soon as hitched the RV to the truck. I also noticed at that time that the outside panels were sliding breaking the exterior caulk. The dealer spoke with the manufacturer and after providing some measurements they decided the RV needed to be returned to the factory! At this point the RV has been at the dealer more than we have had it to use. I could have saved some storage fees if I knew this would happen. Has anyone every had their Sanibel returned to the dealer? If so, how long did it take to get it back? I understand there was a problem a while ago with broken welds? Maybe that's my problem. I believe the RV was built in January 2013 but there was rust all over the under body when we purchased. We have been very patient so far and hope we have not purchased lemon. We have a two and a half month trip planned to Florida this winter.

It sounds a lot like this thread: Problem with my 2012 Sanibel 3500
