Good luck with a lemon law. Every article that I have read about the High Desert package states that it is "water resistant". Kinda like the difference between my work boots and my waders.
I can not answer that. All I know there are three boxes in the bed that have new panels in them. Since it's going to be 3 weeks for the rest of the parts to arrive, I've picked up my truck with a disassembled insert. I have not compared the old panels to the new ones..
Mine is in the process of having the TSB work performed. The bag of seals and gaskets that has the correct part number is wrong. They've talked with "parts tech" and the correct seals are still being manufactured, 2-3 weeks before they arrive. The"fix" includes new panels, seals and gaskets, hopefully it will correct the issue. The TSB is for the early models, wonder if anybody with a 2018 has leak issues.
I've been waiting 6 weeks for the dealer to get the parts. At first they just blew me off, but I sent an e-mail to a contact in Chevy corporate and that got the ball rolling. I put dielectric grease on all the seals, it helped a little.
It books at a 4 hour job, looks like you have to totally dismantle the insert. Might as well have it done, may not make it totally waterproof but it might make it better and if GM is going to cover it...why not.
On my 14 Silverado I painted the Bow Ties with gloss black and then added 2 coats of clear, they looked great and waxed fine. The only problem was stone chips, had to redo the front one. On my 17 Silverado I used plasti-dip and left them flat black. The flat looks better in my opinion.
