    Caring for Sofa and Theatre seating

    We just got our 303 and I am wondering if anyone knows what to clean/carefor the sofa and recliners? They appear to be leather, but I am sure they are not real leather. I forgot to ask our dealer when we were doing our walk through.

    I too, am watching this. I have leather in all of my vehicles and use Meguiars Gold Class cleaners and conditioners. I am not totally sure it is right for the fake leather in our 303. Our doggy uses the couch most of the time and I have used Aerospace 303 to wipe down after a wet rag cleaning but wonder if a leather conditioner is right for the material used on the furniture in our coach. I wonder what GD/Lippert recommends?

    The "leather" on the LCI seating (theater seats, sleeper sofa) in our Reflection is not full-thickness leather. It is a manufactured leather product bonded to a fabric backing. Whatever you use on it must be labeled as safe for manufactured leather products. I use regular leather products on the seats in the truck since they are "real" leather. I don't use anything other than a damp cloth to clean up spills on the RV furniture.

    It's bonded leather. There's a thread on this forum about it or you can google "bonded leather". It's not a very good product and once it starts peeling there isn't any stopping it and it accelerates very fast. We keep our two sofas covered with sofa covers to keep the dog's claws from damaging the bonded leather. The last time I had this product, it didn't last two years.

    Just accept the fact that this stuff is likely to peel. I have a Costco chair with this pleather and once it starts peeling there is nothing you can do to stop it.

    Sweet Project Cars' method?

    Well this thread is depressing. As I've mentioned before, I watch a YouTube channel called "Sweet Project Cars". I think I'm going to try his method on my RV's furniture. Can't hurt, based on the experience of the individuals that have posted on this thread. If you're curious, watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcl59LfDHLo

    Bonded Leather....What It Is and How To Care For It: https://www.officechairs.com/blog/bonded-leather

    Like I mentioned above....take care of it in advance because once the smallest piece starts to peel, it's pretty much garbage within a very short period of time.
