      Update from Texas Assn of Campground Owners re: Evacuees   08/28/17

      Good morning, There are now at least 18 privately owned and operated campgrounds and RV parks across Texas that are accepting evacuees. The attached news release, updated from the one the association issued yesterday, includes the names and contact info for the parks. Consumers can also do their own research to identify parks with RV spaces and rental cabins at www.TexasCampgrounds.com and www.TexasCabinRentals.net. Please contact Brian Schaeffer, executive director and CEO of the Texas Association of Campground Owners, on his cell phone at (817) 307-0129 for any questions. We will continue to update this release over the weekend based on the feedback we receive from campgrounds and RV parks across Texas. Many thanks for including our information in your reports yesterday. We appreciate it. Sincerely, Jeff Crider

I have a 2008 class A Presidio. I just started RVing in May.

My 2 front chairs are loosing their leather skin also happening to my sofa. They didn't seem to have problems when I bought MH.

Am I doing something to cause the problem? I plan to replace or reupholster but don't want the same problem reoccurring.

Any suggestions to this newbie would sure be appreciated. Also suggestions where to buy inexpensive replacements or get the reupholster.

Thanks in advance for your input.

I believe you RV was made by Thor. I have a Four Winds Class C made by Thor, purchased new in 2009. Before the end of the first year, I noticed my drivers seat starting to peel. I was fortunate enough to catch it under warranty, so they replaced them. I had later read several complaints on other RV sites about other coaches made by Thor that were having the same problem that you are having. If you google "peeling leather seats in motorhomes" you can see some of the post.

Have the same problem with my 2008 Challenger by Damon, another Thor product. Called Thor, they sent me replacement covers for the driver and passenger seats but will not do anything for the couch. Installation of the new material is at my expense. Have talked to other owners with the same problem and some furniture dealers at RV shows, they say Thor provided the original material to the furniture mfg. and there are many problems.
