really annoyed with bimini poles staining the tent

(1/2) > >>

grecamp:
it is QS 8.0. I cleaned the tent inside nicely and now again horrible black stains. I even used the recommended silver polish on poles (BTW, I am originally Polish...) and that does not seem to help very much.

As much as I like the camper this is really frustrating, impossible to keep the tent clean.

Anyone came up with an idea to wrap those poles with some type of tape? I was thinking regular duct tape but am afraid that it would perhaps leak glue in heat.

KI4MTB:
What about heat shrink tubing?

grecamp:
ensuring there is no tent material between tubing when closing the camper is a challenging game. Have you found a fool-proof way to accomplish that?

Bike tape may indeed work. Thanks for the idea.

EDIT: kill the bike tape idea. This would cost fortune.

That would be great, but huge shrink tubes would be needed. It would end up costing mucho dineros

Astrolite:
What diameter are the poles? Could you use some of that foam pipe wrap that's slit down the side and just slip it over?
