    Brother rolled ski.. now seats are heavy with water..any way to dry them out quicker?

    Is there any way to dry the foam out quicker without removing cover.....This happened a couple weeks ago. Already drilled a few extra holes in the bottom plastic but seats are still heavier than they should be.

    take them off and stand them on one end with the end with the holes facing down.

    make sure it is in the sun and maybe more holes. If these seats do not have the plastic wrap around them under the seat cover you may be stuck with what you have.

    Thats what I'm afraid of the existing vent holes where not covered and you can see the foam inside from the bottom.

    Good luck. Not sure what else to do besides splurging and getting a new Jettrim seat cover.

    Got to have air movement to dry them out. Doesn't matter if its 60 or 90 outside....you need air movement for it to dry. With little to no air movement it could take weeks to dry out. I'd get a fan on it in a controlled environment. 24 hours like that will probably do more good then a week sitting in a garage or any area with little air movement.


    P.S.: Even if its outside right now it may not be getting much air movement if the wind isn't blowing in the right direction.
