Looks like the hybrid guys know the proper method, set up soon as ya get home and wait for dry weather if necessary. Sounds like a plan.

I think I would still open it up for a few days when you get home to make sure it is completely dry or you are just asking for troubles. :lightning:

I think most of us have that "dry it out ASAP" mentatality, and thats good. I want mine completely dry as soon as I can get it that way. Although, there could be special cicumstances like an emergency where you would have to wait.

I don't think it will mildew and rot for quite awhile. I don't know how long it would take to start, but I wouldn't be afraid to let mine sit closed for several days (outside the tropics). When it's open it's still "breathing".

I dont know either, but I do know when clothes get left in the washing machine or a dish towel gets left out wet too long, they start to smell quickly even before the mildew starts. I figure camper stuff will do the same thing. I try to get all of my camping gear clean and dry as soon as possible after a trip weather it is backpacking or in the TT. I think it will make it last much longer and stay nicer in the long run.
