Rain and snow don't seem to bother my tractor seat, not pleasant on my own. Sun is what destroys plastic seats. I use Armorall and when not in use keep them covered with what ever is available. Don

For temporary storage outside you could slip a garbage bag over the seat to keep the rain or snow off it. For long term protection you could sew up a vinyl cover with a drawstring to slip over it - avoid putting any seams where water may sit or pool.

Lot of times covering a tractor outside is worse than leaving it out in the open. Moisture will accumulate under the cover and be trapped there. Having a shed is the most important part of having a tractor in my book.

Hang around vast majority here very friendly, a lot of individual knowledge here and you combine it, its unbeatable. Almost never make something up answer wise... said almost :)
I believe it was the most wise Deerlope who once posted about a pic of a bunch of GT's setting out under a ton of snow (and I may be paraphrasing) ' I do my best to give my equipment my best care, because when I need them to, I expect them to take care of me.
The best answer is shelter the unit if possible as stated UV rays can wreak havoc but so can cold temps making the vinyl more brittle.
I'll close with most of us here have a deep affinity for our tractors, use but don't abuse, maintenance and repair as needed, and sometimes our wives come out to check on us when we are just sitting there looking at them, especially if we have a restored or refurbished one, it can become an addiction, one can argue that the Bolens bug can get you the worse.

I put old mineral tubs upside down over the good seats.

Try flipping the seat forward.

I see someone mentioned armorall. Does that make it slippery?
