Angry Problem with 2016 2904WS

Bought a brand new camper in June since then it has been back to the dealer 3 times. First time for not being set up properly on hitch, refrigerator not cooling well they got the hitch right had to order a new refrigerator and on our last trip oven stopped working. Hard to light and would go out when you closed the door. Just got a call new refrigerator is in and working great but now they have to order a part for the oven. Getting really tired of all this nonsense. Is there any recourse for this?

Forest River does not make the fridges and stoves/ovens. Just like any other business, they are at the mercy of their vendors. They take the heat because their name is on the final product. Try ranting at the mfg of the fridge and stove/oven and see what they say about their products. The hitch setup was a dealer problem. Just saying....................

Actually you really don't have an excess of problems! I'd guess this is your first RV, right? Unfortunately, RV's are more like US made cars of the 70's, and not like the cars we buy today. After owning 12 different new RV's over the past 25 years, I can say that typically it takes 6 months on trailers and a year on motorhomes to get them "sorted out".
Just chill a bit, get the things fixed under warranty and enjoy your RV!!!!
