[pct-l] Nomad Lite tent

Good morning, Lindy,

I have done several patch-jobs with various kinds of seam sealer, and all
have been successful.  I usually dose every seam, crease, or pierce that I
can find while I have the stuff uncorked.  I recommend a liberal test with a
gentle lawn sprinkler after the sealer cures.  You might find some
vulnerable points that were previously overlooked.
