SEAM SEALING WHEN NEEDED
We recommend preparing a seam sealer for emergencies. All major seams are factory taped.
Camping in conditions which cause the original seams to be continuously exposed to heavy rain, runoff, or ground level water, apply extra seam sealing to seams which have 2 or 3 layers of different fabrics stitched together. Seams on uncoated nylon or mesh panels don’t need extra treatment.
There is no need to seal the seams in the roof or the factory taped seams. We recommend sealing of leashes and reinforcement points. Over time seams could experience delamination. Simply clean the seam and apply seam sealer that can be purchased at most outdoor stores.
Apply sealant to the inside and outside of all exposed seams. Several thin layers will work better than one thick layer. Read and follow manufacture’s instructions.
