I've heard of dealers selling last years models as this years. If the vin sticker says 12 and they sold it as a 13 then you very well could have recourse. I think I would talk to a lawyer at this point.
Like I said I would get a lawyer or at least talk to one and see what recourse you have. No one should have to put up with that many problems in that short of time.
X2 on getting a lawyer involved.

We have a 2012 Heartland Bighorn and we have had a few problems most I was able to resolve myself, including a slide that wouldn't go in or out. Nut which secures the hydraulic valve fell off. The list of problems that you have had are average in the industry. Refer and AC problems were caused by a different manufacturer, the one who made the appliance. Driving them down the road will shake things loose so you will be repairing more things which is the nature of the beast. It sounds like your dealer is making an honest attempt at resolving the problems.
Soon the outstanding issues will be resolved and you will be able to enjoy your new FW.

If it were me (easy for me to say), I would re-read the Lemon Law info you have to see if you have recourse (I think someone already suggested this). Secondly, I would talk to the dealer and/or the manufacturer and ask for them to pay for a 5 or 7 year extended warranty policy in light of the many problems you have had and the anticipated future problems. If this is a no-go, I would ask the manufacturer to extend their warranty (probably one year) for an extra year.
In my opinion, you are having way more problems than what would be considered "ordinary" so you need to pursue this. Also, my suggestion would be to only engage an attorney as a last resort...just my opinion
