Flex steel "leather" peeling off. Any fix??

Our 2010 357 qs has peeling on one captain chair and one sofa cushion. Is there any kind of a patch kit or anything anyone is aware of????

One the captain chairs are not Flex-Steel products but just a knockoff.
Many people have had the seat break apart but if you look under the captains chair their should be a piece of paper between the metal spring and cushion.
It will have the manufacturer of the chair as well as the model and color of the material.
You can contact them and buy a new replacement shell that you or someone will have to install.
Some people have done it here already.
I had mine fall apart in my first year and the company sent me a new slip cover to reinstall but I haven't done it yet.

Here is a few pictures of my seats and my label.
Good luck.

I am replacing both of my captains chairs. They are in good shape and are in a 2011 Berkshire. They are dark brown and could be had very cheap. I am redoing the couch as well. No worn spots yet and no rips. I will give them to anyone that wants them for the price Brad at Brad and Hall will pay me 100 each. They will be in Elkhart on the 9th of June and will be at the FMCA Glassarama for the week. I don't want to ship them and I would give you the couch. The air mattress is gone but all in good shape if someone needs them.
