As far as the bunks, several people have mentioned the seasoning... I had no idea and was not told.

I will have to go thru the manuals when I get the camper home to check on what it says that the dealer neglected to mention.
I had a PUP years ago, so I'm just curious, what does seasoning mean?

Bunk ends need to be watered down to seal the stitches in the seams, the sewing thread used is supposed to swell up. There's a sticky about it here on the hybrid section regarding seasoning and cleaning the bunk ends. Older popups and tents of canvas also required seasoning.

Good to know. Wonder why they didn't do that when they built it?

I was such a noob, I slathered Scotchgaurd on the canvas and never had a problem.

That'll work too! Back then there wasn't all the hi tech materials and sprays that we have now.

Had a pup for 10 years and did the seasoning trick back in '99 when we bought it. Never had an issue. Bought our first hybrid in '09 and did the same thing. No problems. Never used anything but cleaners. Just brought home our first Roo. It was so-o-o seasoned on the dealers lot the tents were stained (2015 23ikss). Dealer is so great that they are dropping tent cleaner (and the Welcome kit that was missing) off to our house. We spent 7 hours doing the PDI and other events that we never opened the tents. PS make sure you tow with your tanks empty. During their inspection they left the fresh, grey water, and Black full of clean water. With all that weight behind the axles and none of my stuff in it yet, she went squirrely down the highway. Threw the trucks antisway into a frenzy. Light flashing and engine shut down. Drove home real slow after that.

X2! The dealer showed us the "pillow in the microwave" during the PDI on our Roo. That was back in March of '08. Been doing it since. Always a pillow on the sofa - noodles left with the above ground pool.

Same here I guess, but we usually have the microwave filled with bread and buns.
