Our 2008 Georgetown had the same issues, plus they do suck after a few hours of driving. We switched them out with Flexsteels with adjustable armrest and manual lumbar adjustment. We went with the Kashmira Microfiber in the Bark color. BIG improvement. The cost in 2013 was around 2100.00.

I believe its a cheap fabric, it happened to ours and there was no sun damage or chemicals used lucky it was during the warranty period and was sent replacements for both chairs. Have them in storage until they give out completely..

Go to Forest River Rally next year in Goshen. They replaced my Captain chairs and lounge chairs with what appears to be a quality material. No Charge although these were originally replaced under warranty in 2011.

Maybe it's cracking because it's apholstery. Upholstery may be OK.

cracking furniture

FR uses very inferior furniture. Our captain chairs have already been replaced once and they are cracking again. The couch material is disintegrating as well as the recliner chair. Our MH is a 2012 and we only use it on the weekends and have barely 5000 miles on it. Very expensive to get recovered or replaced. Workmanship in FR products USED to be very good but, apparently they are cutting costs. Good luck in getting them to do anything. With all the complaints listed on this forum maybe we could file a class action suit against them.

This cracking and peeling has nothing to do with cleaning or sunlight. The material is cheap Chinese. Mine were replaced under warranty and a year later started again on both Captain Chairs and Euro's. Went back and forth with Georgetown with no luck but went to FR Rally in Goshen this year for the first time and they replaced everything, no charge. The new material looks like quality but only time will tell.
