Preventing Cracking/Pealing Of Thomas Payne Leather Recliner RV Furniture


Have read and heard about the chairs pealing and/or cracking? What is/was the problem and has it been resolved?

I actually have a friend that has the now discontinued Thomas Payne Euro RV Recliner 195-000033 and we haven't had that problem at all. The cracking/pealing issue is just a lack of cleaning and conditioning of the leather. It always comes down to how well you care for the leather. I see it all the time in cars and trucks because they get SO HOT in the summer and EXTREMELY cold in the winter. RV furniture is the same way. I takes a little more damage than your furniture at home just because when in storage, there are times where it will be below freezing and other times it's above 100 degrees in the camper. So it's safe to say they are put through much more than the normal furniture you have at home.

That being said, I personally have not seen this being an issue, but if you wanted to be extra safe I suggest conditioning your recliner often. During your routine cleaning, use one of these Griot's Garage Leather Conditioning Products like the spray # 34910963 or gel # 34911019. Simply spray, spread and wipe down your chair as often as possible. I like the spray the best, but that's just me. I HIGHLY suggest using a microfiber towel # 34914901 to really get the solution to absorb into the chair. All these products can be used on leather in your home, RV or any vehicle you have!

This stuff is awesome!!
