Seasoning

I read somewhere that I need to (season) the bunk ends on our new x23b by lightly hosing them down a few times. Is this true, and what is the proper way to do it.
Thanks

The owner’s manual will tell you how. Setup the bunks and give them a few light sprays with water, and make sure it dries in between sprays. It is suppose to help seal up the seams.

Yes. Spray the entire bunk end with a gentle spray from your garden hose, focusing mostly on the seams. Then let dry completely. Repeat a couple more times and your seams should be seasoned. I followed up with liberal use of Scotch Guard on seams and canvas windows. Never had any leaks or weeping.

They'll get seasoned the first time it rains!

I was thinking the same thing.
