I don't want to drag this on. I found this on AVVO.com/legal-answers/heartland-rv-lemon.

But there is also a federal lemon law that can cover travel trailers and the rest of every Rv and it can help you too; it's called the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act. Under this federal lemon law you only have to give them a reasonable chance to repair a defect. If they don’t get everything fixed within a reasonable amount of time and within a reasonable number of chances, either one, then you have a lemon. If you do have a lemon Rv, then you probably have the right to chose between getting your money back or getting a replacement. You should talk to an Rv Lemon Law lawyer.

Just trying to find out if anyone has used it or where i can get the best legal help.

According to Lemonlawcase the restitution under MM act (aka Federal Lemon law) is

Damages

The damages available under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act differ from those under state statutes. State lemon laws permit recovery of the purchase price for the vehicle. Restitution under the Federal Lemon Law is the difference between what you actually paid for your vehicle, and what you would have paid, back at the time of purchase, if you had known then what you know now about your vehicle.

I assume you've contacted the manufacturer. That would be my next step. Sucks when you have an RV you can't use.

Typically the Magnuson Moss act is used as the basis of the claim when a buyer sues an RV manufacturer. An Example.

That said you better have a strong case and deep pockets.
