     Instructions:
    • Stake out the back end and the front tip of the tent. 

    • Unzip the mesh door and sit inside of the tent with the ‘ceiling ‘of the tent on top of your head. 

    • Insert the ridge pole through the sleeve in the center top. 

    • Insert the tip of one trekking pole into the open tip of the ridgepole and place the handle of the trekking pole 
in the corner of the floor. 

    • Insert the second trekking pole on the other side of the ridgepole. 

    • Make sure the trekking poles are extended so the fabric panel between the door and window is taut. If you 
cannot get this panel taut, step out of the tent, and move the stake at the tip of the tent an inch or more in 
towards the back end of the tent 

    • Once you have the trekking poles set, from the outside of the tent, tighten the cords at the top of the corners 
with the line lock so the tent is taut. 

    • Now, stake out the y on both sides while the fly is zipped shut. The fly will not come all the way to the ground 
providing some air flow from underneath. 

    • The rain fly can be buttoned back both over the door and the windows for increased ventilation. 

    • The ridge vent has a short plastic ‘stick’ at the bottom. Velcro the stick to the vent covers to open the vent. 
Lowering the stick can close the vent.

    Seam Sealing

    It is easier to seam seal the tent when it is set up. You must use a silicone based seam sealer such as McNett SilNet seam sealer.
    1. Seam seal the fly from the OUTSIDE. Seal the entire ridge line from tip to tip
    2. Seam seal the floor patches from the INSIDE of the tent as well as the seam in the floor.
    3. Seam seal the edges of the bathtub floor for at least one foot from each end of the tent.
    4. It helps to place a few rows of seam sealer along the floor to provide traction.

    You can make your own seam sealer as follows
    • Clear silicone caulk (Purchased at any hardware store.)
    • Mineral Spirits - Commonly used for cleaning paint brushes.
    • Small brush to apply the sealer - a small foam brush works well.
