For the 13 years I owned my pop-up, I never treated the tent fabric. Coleman was very adamant in the manual stating not to treat the tenting because it's factory treated. It could rain for days and it wouldn't matter. You could lay right up against the tent ends and never get wet. Not sure treating the ends is the right thing to do. Unless of course, the manufacturer says to. Some proofing treatments do a great job at first but, could eventually compromise the original waterproofing from the factory. At least that's the conclusion I came to years ago.

Just experienced this myself. It was condensation occurring at the same time as the rain but usually when it was a heavy down pour. We were camping on the east coast and the condensation came from the fog that rolled in on some days, or moisture from my CPAP machine Humidifier. Overnight temps often dropped to 11 to 13 C. I've also been in a couple of down pours since and not had any issues.
