canvas protection

Ok. I have what I hope is a real easy problem to fix. My dad has a jayco pop up that leaks slightly during heavy rainstorms on the window canvas. We applied spray on fabric protectant but we're still getting some water leaking through. Is there anything else I can use or did I not use enough spray?

I would try some canvas waterproofing treatment that you brush on or apply with a garden type sprayer if it's a true canvas material and not vinyl tent ends.

Try seam sealer around any stitching too.

A 9X12 tarp over both bed ends works great for us.

I have been doing this from day one (2008) and call it my POOR MAN GIZMOs...

Never leaks - cools down the inside better with reduced sun load. Also darkens the trailer inside

We get around three seasons out of the tarps. We can change our color scheme also.
