New to RV life

We were so excited when we bought or new 2015 Salem 27RLL, we just didn't realize that it would be so costly to maintain. My wife and I both work so we can only take it out, within 2 hours driving, for weekends or holidays. In the 1.5 years we have had it, and about 6 or 8 trips, we had to replace the AC unit, the control for the stabilizers didn't work, the wheel bearings had to be replaced, the roof membrane needed to be serviced, even though we had 3 inches of rain there was no leak inside, the shower seal was creased and water leaked into the living area ruining the contact paper finish. The AC circuit breaker pops when you use the microwave oven. I am panicked as this will be to expensive to use, and we haven't even used it more than 4 days. If I had known how bad camping in an RV was I would not have bought one.
