We have something similar here in Texas. It's called "presumptive value". I don't know the details in your state, but one absolute protection from the county setting the value is a purchase agreement from a licensed dealer or an appraisal from a licensed dealer.
Have you read your state laws on how this works?
Hopefully a purchase agreement from a dealer trumps their attempt to "set" value...
It sounds like they're trying to "appreciate" your RV. Also note that most people do NADA wrong with RVs - they add back features that are standard on the unit and that skews the value. At the bottom of NADA is explicitly says not to do that.
