Just get a few cans of Camp Dry or a good spray tent waterproofing. Set up the tent and brush the flaky stuff off and spray the whole tent. Allow it to dry completely before refolding. I usually get about 3 years out of one application. The seam tape can be resecured with seam repair products. There are gels, tapes and what look like glue sticks.

We are getting rained on inside this tent. It is leaking at the seams. We received it as a wedding gift that we were registered for at target.


At camping stores you can find silicone based waterproofing spray. Just spray all of the seems according to the directions. In the mean time, if you have a tarp or floor saver under the tent it could go on top, tied down with guy lines if it is windy.

Oh, and be aware that even with waterproof tents, the water can sneak through if anything is touching the wet fabric. The waterproof fabrics hold onto water and lead it down, but the fabric itself is permeable, so keep bags and stuff away from the walls.

Need a rainfly for Super Dome 111 tent. Where can I get one?


Is this the ESCORT Super Dome? If so, then it is a Canadian Tire store brand and you can ask at your local store if there are parts available. I doubt that there are, and at the probably price of getting one made, you could just buy a new tent.

If the old one was rectangular you could try making your own.

If the old one simply leaks, then you can try spraying the daylights out of it to re-waterproof it. UV degrades the DWC layer on the outside, and wear and tear, and stretching, degrade the underneath layer--the real waterproof layer. You really need to spray that if you want it waterproof.

Of course, for this tent you may be better off to replace it rather than buy 2 spray cans at $10-15 each for quality products.

How do I set up a Kelty Pagosa 4 tent?


I don't have the instructions but I can offer you the link to Kelty's customer service information. They can get you a copy of the instruction manual so you have it for future reference.

Kelty is in Boulder, CO for reference

REI is also a good resource if you live near one, They will physically show you how to set-up your tent as it is a product they sell.

My tent has served me well but recently parts are starting to fall off. When I shake the outer cover dry there are lots of flakes that look like glue. 3 of the velcro attachments to the outer part of the...


Hi, the flakes you're referring to is the original weatherproofing that was applied by the manufacturer. This coating can be reapplied using a spray on product that is purchased at most camping outfitters. Before you spray, give the cover a gentle wash to clear any dirt and grime. Then using a mild abrasive pad, gently lift away the flaking weatherproofing. Spray the new coating as per product instructions.

Where can I find set-up instructions for a Kelty Cricket 2 tent?


Easy, dont need instructions.
Smaller pole goes to the foot end of the tent
Larger pole to the head end
assemble both poles, clip tent onto each pole then secure the "point" of the tent with a peg.

How do I maintain it?


Here's what I'd do:
Always use a ground cloth before putting the tent up.
Buy seam sealer, and recoat all of the seams.
Scotchgard by 3M will make the tent and fly more water repellent. Don't be stingy with the application.
Dry the tent if wet before storage to prevent the formation of mold and mildew. It isn't always practical to do this while moving your campsite, but do it as soon thereafter as practical.
Brush all debris out of and off of the tent before stowing. Clean off any stains and stubborn dirt with a mild detergent and water, flush well and dry before stowing.
Lubricate all zippers with wax.
Pack in extra tent pegs and cord. You never know when you'll want more strength.
OK, Does this stuff work? Yeppers! I have a Eureka! dome tent that I have used for 20 years, and it looks pretty close to brand new!
Best regards, from one happy camper to another!
