Since they didn't get it fixed the first time;having the rv for three months, so now you have to spend the gas and time travel, should they pay for the gas? 3. How would you handle this situation?
Before I answer what I would do, I have a question or 2.
When you picked up your 5th wheel, did you check before leaving the facility that the job was done and done right?
Have you called them and spoken the the facility manager to explain your displeasure?
Is this a warranty issue that is paid for by them or out of your pocket?
I think with answers to these questions, we could offer a bit more help?

We're not perfect by any means but both Dutch & I go over any job done by someone else with a fine tuned comb before heading out. That said, we did had a "fix" that worked when we left [2 years ago] but later the same problem showed up again. We had paid for the work out of pocket and did have it done at a Camping World. Because we were over 1,000 miles away, I called them, explained the situation and told them there was a CW very close to where we were traveling. They called the new CW, made an appointment for us and this time it was fixed at no charge to us. They billed the 1st CW. Hugs, Di

Depends on how fastidious you are. I use a polyethelene plate between the pin box and 5th wheel and only lube the kingpin and hitch jaws. When they need cleaning or I want to apply fresh grease, I wipe them down with disposable shop towels and re-apply.
