Driver, Passenger & Sofa seating

We have had our Georgetown just 3years now and the furniture fabric (faux leather) is breaking down...we have not abused this furniture...has anyone else had this problem? We have notified Forest River no response yet. Otherwise really enjoy our MH.

We are having the same problem with both captain chairs and the sofa! I thought it was due to them not being armor all or lotion put on them but they are TERRIBLE!

Send a message via Skype™ to Falcon35
Can anyone tell us if there is something that we can use to keep the faux leather from breaking down? We had the same think on the chairs in our fifthwheel and I thought it something I did in trying to clean them.

Cool

The same thing happen to me.
(2008 Georgtown 373) about a year after we got it.
The service Dept at the dealer changed the 2 front chairs "no charge"
and then a few months after that, the dealer closed so i had to deal with
Forrest River on my own about the sofa cushins
They sent me 3 sofa cushin replacement covers
Good luck, "They know about this"
Let us know how you make-out!

Williamsburg Furniture Inc made the captains chairs and sofa I hope FR has discontinued using this supplier. FR agreed to pay shipping for the replacement of our seats and sofa cushion covers since the warranty was up. We have had 4 RV's and have never had this problem before. Very disappointed; live and learn.

Have you been happy with the replaced seating? Worried that the new ones we have ordered will do the same thing.
