Help! think my 2015 Dutch Star is possessed

Had the new coach a couple of days now, and a st range thing has happened twice now.
Yesterday, I got up, put the kitchen lights on, and I hear a whirring sound, go back in the bedroom, and the bed slide is starting to come in!
Stopped it with the switch, and sent it back out.
Today, the wife leaves for a couple of hours, comes back, and the drawer slide in the bedroom is in!
Anybody have a clue what is happening?
I plan on unplugging the controllers til I can get it back to the dealer.
On another note, non of the fantastic roof fans work......
Is the thing possessed, or have I just bought a lemon?
All of this stuff worked when I picked it up???
Wondering if I should have kept the Meridian :0 (

Remember that the fans won't work if they have moisture on them Not sure about your other gremlins

You turned on your florescent lights the ballast if defective will send out a radio frequency and activate the controller.
The trouble is with the ballast in light.
If you know where the controller is remove the small 12 volt plug on the controller and slide will stay out after putting out, just remember you did it to bring in.
In QT's # 3 there is a whole section on lighting all types for Newmars and what some people did to convert and put in the LED lights and get rid of old type lighting.

Thanks for the reply, however, I don't think florescent lights are the problem, as my coach is all Led.
It also happened later, purely by itself. I have unplugged the controller, which incident ly had a code of E4 showing when I unplugged it. The wall switch also appears to be a bit "dodgy", so I'll let the dealership sort it out when I take it in for the MCD blind motors.
I appreciate all the input so far
Thanks again!

Similar to when we got our new Essex, and one of our first trips, and the fireplace went on. We called Newmar (Jeff), and he said that probably someone in a nearby spot in the park had a frequency that operated our fireplace, so what we did was flipped the circuit breaker whenever we were not using it. Problem solved.
