Clean the tent by setting it up and wiping it downwith a mild soap (liquid hand soap) and lukewarm water solution. Rinsethoroughly and dry completely. Never use detergent, washing machines or dryersbecause they can damage the tent's protective coating and seams. Aftercleaning, be sure the tent is completely dry, especially the heavier,double-stitched areas such as the seams, before storing or mold and mildew arelikely to grow.
Clean the tent poles with a soft, dry cloth. Thisis especially necessary after oceansidecamping trips to remove salt spray so the poles don't corrode or stay gritty.
Clean the zippers with a quick dip in water andthen dry them off. This is especially important if you've been camping in alocation with sand/dirt. If you don't clean the zippers, the sliders will wearout and eventually the teeth will become inoperable.
We recommend use of a sealer such as Kenyon SeamSealer 3 or McNett Outdoor SeamGrip. Be sure to check directions on the side ofcontainer for specifics before beginning the seam sealing process.
Seam sealing should be done in a fully ventilatedarea. Set the tent up or lay the tent out flat. Taut seams allow for evenapplication and penetration of the sealer.
Decide which seams need to be sealed. For example,seams that will be exposed to rain, runoff, or ground level water are a mustfor sealing, while seams on uncoated nylon or mesh panels won't need treatment.You won't need to seal the seams in the roof or the factory taped seams either.We recommend sealing both floor & fly seams and reinforcements.
Apply sealant to the inside and outside of allexposed seams. Draw or brush the sealant along the seam, spreading it evenlyand liberally into all of the needle holes. Several thin layers will workbetter than one thick layer. Allow 30 minutes to 1 hour for the sealant tocompletely dry before storing the tent. Twelve hours for SeamGrip.
Ultraviolet damage to tent fabric is caused byexcessive exposure to sunlight. While our fabrics are UV resistant, anysynthetic fabric is susceptible to ultraviolet degradation. UV damage willcause nylon and polyester to become brittle and tear easily. Once your tent hasUV damage, it is non-repairable, but damage can be minimized by erecting tentson sites where exposure to direct sunlight can be avoided. We also recommendthat you use the rain fly even on clear days. It acts as a sunscreen to thetent. A rain fly is both easier and less expensive to replace if damaged.
Due to the nature of tent fabrics, color cantransfer from darker fabric to lighter fabric if two colors are in contact overtime when wet, damp, or exposed to the combination of moisture and high heat.This does not affect a tent's performance. To prevent/minimize color transferfrom occurring, always make sure that your tent is completely dry prior topacking and storage.
Make sure the tent is completely dry, then storeloosely rolled, in a dry, cool place. To prevent dust from collecting on thetent, cover it with a cloth. This allows the nylon/polyester fabric to breathe.
Ideally, the tent poles should be stored in theirfully assembled state. This reduces the tension on the shock cord, prolongingits life. We recommend that the tent bag be used only as a carry sack and notfor storage.
Use a ground cloth under the tent wheneverpossible. If you choose, Eureka!has pre-cut sizes. If not, trace the tent on the ground cloth and cut smallerthan the tent footprint to avoid having it act as a water collector. Groundcloths are easier and less expensive to replace than torn tent floors.
Try not to wear shoes inside your tent.
Bring a small rug or mat to put inside the tentdoor to wipe off mud and catch sand.
Sweep the tent floor daily to prevent damage fromstones.
Do not keep food inside the tent. Hungry critterswill chew through the tent fabric in search of a snack.
