Instead of killing poochie (Please say u were joking), try to use Dawn Antibacterial dishsoap at the car wash, after that use a silcone base water repellent.

that is another concern, does a person want to water proof the canvas. im thinking ,it breathing helps with condensation. my worries is it will fade when washed, or worse, shrink if i use hot water.by the way, she ( the dog) did live. i waited till the next time she tried to get in and explained why that was not nice.

If you use a mild soap such as dish soap it shouldn't bleach it out. As for waterproofing? I would suggest it as it will also help to prevent rot. I have washed older canvas tents with no problem.

hey you can remove the canvas and take it to the car wash and wash it off let dry and wala its done. if all you want is the hair and smell off this should do it (just dont go overboard and get to close the water will ripp the canvas if you give it a chance). ive done this with my trap 2 (the cat found a warm sleeping spot kept the mice out)and you will want to spray it with water repelant. if your worried about condensation just dont spray the sides. hope this helps,

pj4, for what it's worth, I found simple green to work very well for mildew stains on a pop-up camper I once had. Spray it on, let it soak in, then scrub with a brush.

    • friend good luck to you and your wife!!!!   I do know where you are at....  my prayers to ya............
    • Anyone been out this past week? My bird hunting has been cut short this year so I am depending on others to keep me up to date. My wife has Breast Cancer and is starting radiation treatments soon, lasting a good part of October. I may be able to do some deer hunting depending how she is feeling. She has had surgery and the outlook is great and she feels great so that's the main thing. Good luck to all you hunters.
    • dont everyone post at once!!!!!!🤣😂 hummers bailed from itasca county, got a couple still around cold spring, seen them yesterday. but i havent seen any robins in a while. anyone else???????????????????????????????????
    • My routing was keep all the drive train zerks greased every few outings, change oil & filter yearly and front and rear diff by-yearly unless I did a lot of swamp running.  There are a bunch of helpful videos on the Tube. 
    • I was out today putting up a deer stand and came across a lobster mushroom. I don't think I have seen any this late before. I will be enjoying the little gem tonight.
    • thanks for the write-up - and great pics!  hopefully these stories will keep me interested until i have my own west hunt.   good luck to all
    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
