Ghosthunter, I had a thought about this with my brothers tent. The thought was, if you opened the flaps on the eves  (if equipped for rope support) And ran a pipe under the tent mid-way on the shade side, it would create air flow. Cooler air from the bottom of the shade side venting out the top of the tent as it heats. A battery fan on the exit points would only increase air flow. Just make sure to zip tie some fine mesh on the bottom pipe for critters. It was a thought that never was tested. Just made sense to me. The heat coming from the exit points, combined with the outflow of air would keep the bugs out.
Just a thought !

You can get stove jacks on line from almost any tent maker.

Well I was reading on another thread that folks were having trouble with moisture forming between their sleeping pad and cot in a wall tent.

I have never had this problem in my wall tents. I did experience it in a friends one year.

I think the solution is not to have dead air space under your cot or empty air space. And more padding between you and cot.

Anyone else. ?????

I think part of the problem is the pad that I am using is a cloth wrapped foam pad, not one of those air up pads where you open the valve and it airs up.  The material on those would hold up better to the moisture I would think.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Also we keep a pan of water on the stove for moisture in the tent.  My daughter gets bloody noses from the dry air sleeping in the wall tent with the wood stove blazing.

I am considering doing the same this year but also am doubting that we will be able to have a fire so might not work quite as well. No fun sleeping with tp stuffed up your nose.  :o

I use a high loft bag with a foam pad under it and under that I have the bag stuff bag and other odd end bags. I store my clothes bags under my bunk. and keep all window cracked about four inches. No moisture issues.

No and when she gets them they are bad, big blood clots.  She has the same issue at our cabin in the winter, the air is so cold and dry outside and then dry wood heat in the cabin.  One step that we take is she puts Aquafor on a Q tip and coats the inside of her nostrils with that.  That seems to help as well.

 I have two wall tents.

One with the stove jack to the right of the door. Tent #1

The other has a door each end with the stove jack to the back right, or front left depending how I set it up. Tent #2

For some reason I like tent # 1 layout best even though #2 is a better tent.

Do you have a preference and why?

I have only known stove on the left and you walk in. I could hardly imagine any other configuration. But I dislike change too :chuckle:

I think the reason I like the stove near the entrance is itís easy to grab some wood just outside on same side. It might have to do with being right handed. :dunno:

I like that it keeps the mud/muck to a minimum at the entrance by keeping the ground dry there. Helps minimize mess the rest of the way into the tent. Also, when it gets to warm, you seem to be able to cool the tent down easier with stove by the door.

What do all of you guys do about patches for holes? Do you sew it or is there a good glue to use with some small patches
