wetting the canvas seams before camping, has been around for decades.
this is suggested for popups and hybrids.
my hybrid came with paperwork from the canvas maker, suggesting to do this.
it allows the thread to swell and fill up the thread holes.
don't worry about any leaks, if there are, they're minor.
if any of you didn't get paperwork with your owner's manual, for care and maintenance of the canvas, contact the manufacturer.
T.J. Snuggles does the canvas for FR hybrids. not sure if they do for the popups.
never believe a dealer that contradicts the manufacturer's instructions, even if they are large and established.
some do apply seam sealer after they've done the seam wetting and allowed the thread to dry completely.
