Currently installing the Retrax Pro XR and have a question for those with any Retrax cover.... as I think this question would pertain to all of them. The weather seal for the canister's top plate that sits on the bed near the cab window... it extends past the Retrax rails by a small amount on each side. I see their installation manual references that it should be trimmed to NOT extend past the bed rail caps. Currently there is a small gap as it rises over the bed rail cap and under the Retrax rail... I see this as a possible water entrance if not trimmed. Can anyone offer any insight on this matter? So many videos I've seen from resellers showing the installation do not mention trimming it and show it extending past the Retrax rails. See note on page 3 of their PDF https://truck-hero.com/images/Install_Guides/RetraxRetractableBedCoverInstallInstructionsRev73018.pdf
On a positive note... great to hear of that customer service... but disappointing to hear the leaking with the second canister. Love the look of the cover too... picked up the XR since they were running a promotion for the last 2 weeks of April. XR is the RetraxPro MX with the T-Slots... mail in promotion gets a set of Yakima cross bars (Short Rack Package) incl. Towers, Pads, and Locks. Promotion ended 4/30
Yep... that original small weep hole on the far right side can't be more than an 1/8" in OD... which could easily cause any decent amount of water to back up right to the canister should any small item clog it. Like so many... looking for a reasonable option before drilling. As far as leaking between the metal slats (assuming that is where you're referring to)... I've seen videos of such and it was a concern... but also know of owners of the RetraxPro who say they haven't seen that happen... just water near the tailgate. How long did it take for those leaks to appear?... since you've had it for 3 years.
About to install a RetraxPro cover and have been hesitant to drill out the passenger side far right drain hole for the OD of the drain tube. Is that a brass reducer in the last photo for the passenger side drain tube? If so... what size reducer if you recall?
Currently with the GM liners... the Husky GearBox rests in front ( or outside ) of the molded lip on the GM liners... so the Husky is sitting on the thickness of the liner's floor... no ridge or lip is in the way. With the seats down there is a 1/4" gap on the inside perimeter... and flush on the outside near the rear doors (between underside of seats and Husky). Thinking it has to be the thickness of the GM liners at the center seam area.
Picked up the Husky Gear Box under seat storage for a 2018 Denali CC with the GMC all weather floor liners from factory. Having an issue getting it to sit flush on top of the rear floor liner that goes under the rear seats. I've seen reviews of those who purchased it and said it fits fine and flush over the Husky floor liners. Are the GMC ones thicker than 3rd party after market ones?
Thank you all for the feedback. Much appreciated! I'm leaning towards the Retrax Pro MX... and today they announced a promotion on just that model of tonneau. When purchased thru participating resellers till 4/15... a free SwingCase via a mail in process to Retrax. FYI... if anyone else is shopping for a tonneau. Also... I watched an install video for the SwingCase... I have to think there's some noise and/or vibration with them?... unless that latching system is super tight. Any thoughts?
Agreed... and as you said earlier... it simply comes down to preference of the look of each. As I recall... the Roll N Lock only locks at specific stops along the length vs the Retrax being able to lock at any location?
I initially liked the Revolver's low profile look... but kept looking at those segmented plastic sections rolling up each time in each demo video I watched... then saw the sealed bearings on the others.... night and day! 2 sites have 10% OFF right now on lots of covers... so it's a decent savings at the Retrax MSRPs... TonneauCover World and RealTruck Over here in PA/NJ waiting for springtime to detail
Thanks for that feedback on Retrax customer service re: their cost U/Gs offered to you... that alone gets them 'a look' and consideration. and yes... the 1'x1' canister space requirement is the tradeoff for security.
So true... my concern on the BAK Revolver series... are those plastic sections ( 2" long each ?) along the bedrails that their locking collar grabs onto... roll up... roll out... roll up... roll out... and after a while I have to wonder how those hold up too. I agree... Roll N Lock and Retrax look like the most secure.... just coming to grips with the price... Thanks... your feedback has helped Any recommendations for resellers?
Considering a cover for a 2018 Sierra CC Denali... saw the demo rack at the dealership for the 'REV' version of what looked like the BAK Revolver X2 cover... and now I see BAK has the Revolver X4 version. I was considering one of those till the Retrax PRO was mentioned here on other threads. The MSRP of the Retrax seems to be the going price lately... haven't seen them discounted until today with 2 sites offering 10% off till next week sometime. Any feedback on these covers? Thanks!
