Forza 38R problems

I purchased my 38R it has been in the shop or waiting for repairs more than being used. The latest is a repeat pax slide issue. The coach is always leveled prior to slide use but the long slide's bottom gears seem to pull in prior to the top. I understand that both gears on each end are driven by two 300/1 motor's (1 on each top end) so the retract issue on the bottom (being faster or pullin in first) is a problem. The problem first appeared on Jun 2014 2 weeks into our Alaska trip. I called our dealer and went home. It was in the shop for 3 weeks waiting for new gears n motors as is required, as they said. Got it back in Sept 2014. Now It is happening again Aug 2015..with 12 month warranty over I suspect a big bill. Then again my other repairs are back as well...1. Sewer/Water basement floods when driving in wet conditions. 2. Water drips along inside top of windshield onto dash with wind noise at 70mph. 3. Gravel kicked up by rear tires knocked holes in rear bumper fiberglass. (Was told it is insurance issue not defect but is thin FG in this area). 4. Refrig/Freezer doors open when either is closed hard or when cornering. Screw securing device is long winded and inconvenient 5. Rear toilet red light prevents flushing...am told a solinoid is at fault but will be weeks for part. Spent loads flushing the B/W tank trying to fix. Other problems fixed: 1. No fixed door handle to grab from inside. 2. Drivers side window latch would not stop whistling..replaced window. 3. TV antenna satilite wires not identified. Was difficult to find. 4. Not much counter space so placed hardwood folding extension. 5. Placed two more 12vdc Maint-free batteries near existing four. 6. Placed protective metal under batteries, propane, and radiator. Not a happy camper.
