Roo Hybrid Bunk End Canvas Care & Maintenance

I was looking thru my paper work for my 2013 Roo 233s (mfg date 10/2012) and found these. Have read a lot on here about leaky canvas, "seasoning", and care. Posting this as here is what the mfg has to say about the matter. For those of us who bought new I'm sure these look familiar.

I found the same thing in our 2015 Roo we picked up last week. While doing the PDI I asked about seasoning the tents and was told they had never heard that and it wasn't necessary. I thought about calling them and letting them know about the tags from the Manufacture.

Just picked up our 2015 Roo 21SS. How do you "season" the tent ends?

Thanks, Jim

Thumbs up Seasoning tent ends

Congrats on your new ROO. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do ours. As for seasoning the tents, we opened them and used the garden hoed to spray both end till they we completely wet. Let them dry then we did it a second time. I don't know that it needs the second one but I wanted to be sure the seams had been soaked so the threads would swell. It must have worked because we haven't had any leaking. Good luck.

These dealers are idiots and have no business selling hybrids OR popups.
Seasoning popups' canvas has been around for at least 25 years, way before hybrids came on the scene in 1998.

Because they are dealers just like a car dealer they make money when they sell it but don't care once you leave the lot, maybe 10% of dealers do care, but about 5% really know there products, if I ever have a question I contact the MFG.
