Mattress Deflates

I have a 2009 V-Cross VFKS-29 with the leather couch option. It came with an inflatable mattress which developed a leak. The mattress has a bottom section that sits on the floor and a top which sits on the couch with the cushions removed. Does anyone know the manufacturer? I have been told that it is Flair and I was given a phone number of 574/534-2163 X114.
Is the mattress fixable or do I need to buy a new one? I have pictures if it will help.

If you can take it outside air it up and spray with soapy water till you find the hole.

Had a similar mattress in the Georgetown. Came with Mfg ID and a patch kit with the books. Patches just like a bicycle tube.

If in warranty; Flair replaces free.
Out of warranty, Flair replaces "at cost" not retail.

A brand new air mattress was less than a same size Coleman without the electric pump. It was a no brainer to buy the replacement from Flair.

They also told me how to patch my old one, so now I have a spare that has held air for 2 years now. (not all the time of course!)

One thing about the air mattress beds is that they are not supposed to be left in the camper in below freezing weather. (if all fails, read the directions) From what I understand that is why a lot of them leak.
