Leaking BW Turbo Lite FS

Hhhmmmmm......

Stuck the kids (ours and others) in the backyard last night as we were overcrowded with relatives staying over. Rained steadily all night and the BW Turbo Lite FS 300 leaked like a sieve!

Water soak through the fly everywhere, then through the tent walls and roof at the unlined segments. This was general, all-over seepage, not a leak or leaks.

The tent is 20 months old. Last use was Fraser Is in Oct where it rained on and off for 4 days without a drop entering the tent. After Fraser, as we had to pack up wet, I pitched the tent in the garage for 3 days to dry it out before repacking for storage.

It's like the fabric has lost its water proofing. Very strange

I think it's just condensation. Had our Oztent in some wet and hot weather and it too produced condensation on the inside, and quite a bit.

BW are replacing the tent, no arguments, new one is on it's way. Purchased it in April '08 so that's pretty good service I think
