If I remember correctly, the instructions I followed when I brought mine home was to set it up in a dry location and spray it down with water real well and let dry.

Interesting. Maybe I will just set it up in my yard and let the sprinklers hit it and then dry.  :chuckle:

That is all that is needed. Don't touch the canvas or seems with any sealant.

After I got mine, saw a good soaking rain foretasted. Set it up, it got soaked, no leaks. Let it dry out the next couple days, done.
I felt like a one legged cat trying to bury a terd on a frozen pond!

These come pre shrunk so there is no need to water it IMO.  Now if you buy a new wall tent that is not pre shrunk you soak it good, let it shrink....repeat 2-4 times and not worry about it again.  Canvas will stretch over time so you can always water it to shrink it back up as needed.  As for waterproofing / treating the canvas....it comes pre treated so just set it up and go.  We hunted in Idaho for 6 days last spring and it rained.....we stayed very dry.

My Springdale that I just got has been up over a week and we have had some stupid rains a couple of days ago and hasn't leaked a drop... Just waiting for a couple of nice days so it will dry and I can take it down.

If it was posted on here before I didn't see it. Any thoughts on Deluxe vs VX - windows are always nice but I worried about zipper durability.

It will be used the least during Aug/Sept due to harvest, and used the most Oct-June. I was kind of leaning towards the deluxe given that. June/July I'll typically be 5k or above, so it's never really that hot, nor do I spend much time in the tent during the day anyways.

I scooped one up a few months ago, deluxe and don't see a need for the other windows

Has anyone had this happen?  Itís the same on the other side; didnít notice until a couple tree frogs made their way in during a thunderstorm one night.

Never had that happen in all my years of using mine.
I'd give the company a call. Their customer service is good. Or at least was, haven't called and chatted in a long time.

Calls went nowhere but they were pretty quick to respond via email at first but after pictures and the problem they responded a week later telling me to take it to a boat shop. I asked if it was covered under warranty last week but no response.

For anyone interested, the company does not consider it a manufacturer defect so Iím having it repaired locally.  Great tent and hoping for many more years of use  :tup:

So, what do you feel caused that?  Did the poles get pulled out excessively?  Did you stake the centers out super tight before installing the poles?  I can't really see any scenario causing that.
