Vinyl Breaking Down on Dinette

We own a 2013 3050 DS, bought it Aug '13. We have used it possibly 15 times(we work full time and only have weekends to camp). Around Feb I noticed a break down in the vinyl seat of the dinette. Started with the actual seat and has spread to the side. We have Trident Appearance Protection which doesn't mean crap. Apparently if I were to vomit., urinate or draw with a crayon on the vinyl, they would replace it. But this break down in the vinyl is 'normal wear and tear'. It is just the two of us. Has anyone had this happen? And what do we do now? It is only going to get worse.

It sounds like they're asking you to get out the crayons and get creative. If you give them a valid reason to replace them then wouldn't they have to get you replacement cushions?

My unit is a 2015 so I can't say if this is normal for these cushions. However, I was in a 2014 3010 rental unit that a friend had this summer and I didn't notice anything with the cushions breaking down. I don't know if the material is the same between the bench seat dinette and u-shaped dinette but it seemed to be holding up and it has been used much more than 15 times.
