2013 Adventurer (SLIPPERY SEATING !!!)

Hello to all. I was hoping maybe after a couple of seasons the "leather" seating in my coach would break in alittle and become less slippery. It hasn't !! Compared to some of the issues other folks have with their coaches I do realize this is minor. But there has to be something that can be done about this. If anyone has the solution for "slippery" seating it would be great to hear it. Thanks in advance !!!!!

Is it possible that the dealer put some type of "treatment" on the leather to help protect against stains and spills? We have the same motorhome and have never had a problem with slippery leather. Ours is well broken in with a trip to Alaska, a couple trips to Florida, and a dozen or more trips around the upper Midwest. With a little over 20,000 miles on the odometer slippery seating isn't and hasn't been a problem.

I agree, mine is kind of on the slippery side also. I was hoping it would break in and get a little less but I have not used it enough to get there.

I agree, we were disappointed when we could not order a cloth couch. My DW tried to sleep with our granddaughter on the couch in a nylon sleeping bag, long night!!!

Mine too. I've done some searching on here and found that a solution of 1/3 rubbing alcohol 2/3 water will take the slippery wax off the covers without harming the material. Then use some cleaner/conditioner on them. I plan on doing this before my next outing.. but I'm going to try it on the backside of a cushion first.

On a related note,

I opened the zippers about 8" on the cushions in our 34B, this allows the air out faster when your sitting on the sofa and allows your body to settle into the seat and seatbacks.

Might help.....

It's interesting you mention that. I end up on the couch about half the time. It's easier to move to the couch than to try to kick the dogs off the bed. Even when I do manage to get then off the bed I usually wake up an hour or so later to find they're in almost the same spot I moved them from. I don't understand how they can be so quite and careful as to sneak back in without waking me up a second time.
