    Can I waterproof my RTT?

    Does anyone out there own a RTT? If you do, have you ever waterproofed it?

    I have heard that when you clean the tent, it starts to break down the waterproofing of the material, and because of this you can apply some waterproofing agents to your RTT.

    I have been doing research online, and I came across a couple of products. Does anyone have any experience with 303 Fabric Guard or Atsko Silicone Water-Guard? If not, have you found a good product that worked well for you?

    Thank you so much for your time and your help!
    Have fun out there!

    Can I waterproof my RTT?

    I have a 35 yr old tent that i still use. Iíve only cleaned it a few times. Waterproofed once a year when used heavily.
    By clean i mean fully air dry and hand wash with water and some mild soap to remove mud.

    When we were in scouts, we camped monthly (Fri thru Sun) and 2full weeks annually, for 6 yrs.

    I use the Atsko Silicone.

    However I would follow the manufacturer recommendations.
    Some chemicals can do more harm then good.
