I did it to mine but it was just last week I picked it up. I'm going to open it up later today and spray it down again. There were instructions to do it so I figured...why not?

You should. Give it at least two hose downs with a complete dry in between. During the second one, i checked for leaking. You do not want to be surprised on your first rainstorm. (Mine had none, but piece of mind is priceless).....

What GalsofEscape said. Better to do it when you have control of the water than when mother nature has control.

Picked my new one up Friday. Dealer said no need to with mate r I also now. Had tags right on windows saying to wet it down twice. I did t hat over the weekend to play it safe also. Gentile wetting, not power soak! All was good.

Don't put your mattresses on the bunks when you do it!!! Wait until you know the seams have sealed themselves.
