Waterproofing the side of the bunk ends

We went camping this past weekend and it poured. Like usual, we had some problems with wet sheets, pillows, and stuffed animals.

The sides of my bunk ends on my 2009 Roo 233 are weeping. I'm talking about the window flaps in particular. They get saturated and water runs down and pools where the velcro flap attaches to the bunk floor. Naturally anything touching the window flaps also get damp. Before anyone asks, this moisture was not condensation. The temperatures were moderate. We had no heat on. The camper wasn't buttoned up tight (vent open with MaxxAir). PUGs were on. Windows under awning were cracked.

The window flap material feels more like a fabric than a vinyl to me. What have people used to waterpoof this?

On a positive note, there was no water dripping from the top of the canvas! This was my first trip with the PUGs I'm happy so far! Unfortuntely the rain gutter made a small tear in one of them. Going to add velcro before the next trip. The PUGs already have velcro on them.

I have used 303 Fabric Guard and it has worked very well for repelling water. Other people use other products, and will chime in shortly.
