So I'm sealing the inside of my the pullouts of my SF, but im not entirely sure what i need to do in order to get a good waterproof seal correctly.
Should I just be applying a thin layer of sealer over the actual stitching itself which runs around the inner border of the black circular patch that anchors the pullout point to the tarp? OR should I be using the silicon to form a non-permeable seal that physically 'glues' the black circle of fabric flat to the tarp material itself?
Basically what im wondering is where does water enter on these types of camping shelters, does it seep in along the seam where the stitching runs Or will it seep in where the edge of the sewn fabric meets the rest of the tarp material?
Right now I basically just made a very thin layer over all the stitching and did not apply any seal that would paste the black fabric to the tarp, nor did I brush any sealant under the black patch to glue it down against the tarp as well.
I hope this makes sense... sorry, im obvioulsy a newb.
