Before we start the returns processes and if you believe your tent/awning is leaking we will need to rule out condensation. Please see reasons for condenstion below especially in new tents or awnings and if you are new to the camping scene. If we feel your product needs to be returned to the manufacturer for inspection, we will return the product on your behalf. The more detail about the issue/fault you can provide in a written email email@example.com, the quicker and more accurate we can aim to resolve the product issue.
