Forest River is using plastic packaging bands to support the cushions - and the people who sit on them. I know this is an ultra lite but doesn't this seem a little cheezy to you???
Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this THE RIGHT WAY? I certainly want better support than whats there. Any help would be appreciated.
If it was me I'd be contacting FR about it. One month out of warranty. I would think, notice I didn't use ASSUME, they would honor the warranty since they know how they put the cushion together. It couldn't hurt to ask. If they don't honor the warranty maybe they could give you some direction as to how to go about fixing it. Otherwise, you may need to take it to a local upholzterer. Hope I spelled that right, oh well if not it's close!!
Good luck, Charlie
