Patching canvas
« on: March 07, 2009, 09:17:21 AM »
Right after we purchased our older model pop up I hooked up electricity to see if the battery would hold a charge. I didn't realize the interior light had been left on by the previous owners. The pup was still down and when raising it to my shock and dissapointment the light had became hot and burned two holes in the canvas as it was folded inside. What's some suggestions for patching these two holes? Is patching available? the rest of the canvas is in great shape.

Work is what you do between camping trips...not the other way around.

If the hole is large, you can make a patch out of marine vinyl and glue it on with E6000.

I patched mine up as much as I could with some bits of canvas the p/o left with it and some bits of fabric from a deck canopy and my sewing machine. The spots I couldn't use the machine on I used marine goop and a bit of canvas. I tried to get some tear-aid from a local dealer to fix 1 more bit I can't get to with the sewing machine. They said they ordered it and would have it in a week or 2. They never did get it in for me. I'll have t try somewhere else. Sad.
I was unable to see your picture, hope you have no trouble getting it fixed!
