Default maintenance on new board

so i got a rossignol one magtek with burton cartel reflex bindings. I've accumulated a few questions in the past few days. First off, on my base side, there is a couple inches of the metal edge not perfectly flush with the rest of the base (there is a gap between the metal and the ptex). to me this seems like a huge flaw in the production of the board..i've ridden on it twice already but is there some warranty from rossignol that will cover this? If theres nothing rossignol will do about it then should i just try and melt ptex into the gap?

another question i have is what tool should i buy to sharpen and tune the edges? the board has magnetraction so there are a few small curves on the side edges. also, correct me if im wrong but the edges should be at 0 and 0, forming a 90 degree angle, right?
The place where i've been snowboarding lately has crappy snow and i end up having a lot of small scratches and nicks after im done riding. the edges of course take some damage and i would like to fix that. If i tune my edges after every ride will the metal edge soon be too small?
seeing as i spent 700 dollars on this board, i would like to keep it in the best shape possible. will waxing after every ride keep the base in better shape or is that overkill? Also what is the best/cheapest bulk wax i could buy? i dont live close to any snowboard or ski shops so i'd like to buy it on the internet.
thanks for the help beforehand.
