Leak on corner canvas

[size=14pt]Just wondering if anyone has a problem with water leaking in the corners on the outside bed end. When it rains it comes in at the corners. It looks like the canvas has shrank and it doesn't go together right there. Any suggestions to pull it together so it won't leak. [:(] [PU] [SCOTR][/size]

Is there an actual gap at the corners? if so, adding fabric (many use the Speedy Stitcher Sewing Awl for such projects), and sealing the seams and waterproofing the fabric may help.

If there is not a gap, sealing the seams and re-waterproofing the fabric should help. Many types of pup fabric need the waterproofing re-done from time to time, especially if the tenting has been cleaned with a product (e.g. mildew removal). Look in your owner's manual for the recommendations for the type of fabric on your pup. if you don't have the manual, look in the manual section through the link above.

This section has reports and questions about canvas, too:
