How to patch hole in inflatable bed?

I knew it would happen, but hoped it would not happen so soon. I have a small hole in the air mattress. It is on the 'felt coated' part of the mattress. Any ideas on how to patch this surface? The patch which came with the trailer does not seem to stick to the fuzzy surface.

Thanks,
ParTimCmpr

Remove the cap on the air valve, put a new matress down and replace the cap. Best I can think of....

You can use something like fine sandpaper to remover the fuzzy stuff. The the supplied patch kit will work fine. One thing I never do is fold the mattress up in the couch...too many pinch points.

After trying to patch the mattress we gave up and folded it away. When I unfolded it to look at today, it seems the patch has actually dried and seems to be holding.

If it starts leaking, I will pull it off, sand away the fuzz, and try again.

Anyone know where I can get 'vinyl repair kits'?

Thanks,
ParTimCmpr
