2017 Forest River Wildwood slide leak

I purchased a new 2017 Wildwood 282QBXL with one slide out. After two months the top D seal was missing and we had water damage. It took 4 months of fighting with Camping World in Fort Myers, FL and Forest River to get the D seal replaced and all it was finger pointing. FR thinks CW doesn't do anything and CW was amazed that FR didn't automatically honor the warranty. They also fixed a cabinet (water damage), the pantry fixed (shelves completely fell apart), trim falling off, and outside light lens fell off. CW could not get anywhere so I had to call FR and had to fight for every single item.
I finally got my camper back only to have it leak and now the exact same thing is happening with FR and CW. I took off the top D seal and found that the D seal track is very wavy and droops down in the middle so the water will simply puddle up in the middle and most likely is the cause of the leak since the slide was closed. It leaks on top of the slide then runs to toward the front (my camper was slightly tilted towards the front) then runs down the side of the slide and bounces off the horizontal rails (for the slide motors) then splashes on the entertainment center. Also, the wipe seals around the rails have gaps which CW says is a design flaw. I said these should be replaced and cut properly to seal around the rails but nothing has been done.
All I know is that I will never by a FR product as they DO NOT HONOR THEIR WARRANTY and CW won't do anything unless FR approves it so basically they won't do anything to help their customer. I have every email and picture saved for legal purposes so if anyone files a class action suite I will join. There should be a lemon law for campers.
