My truck has the rugged cover 2 on it and it's pretty water tight... I never see wet spots inside and I live in Louisiana. It also has led lights built into the back panel. https://www.realtruck.com/rugged-premium-hard-fold-tonneau-cover/
Man this is a real bummer I feel for u guys. I cant believe the extra cost of this and the fact it was so poorly designed. My Sierra Denali came with a dealer installed bed cover thing and its never wet inside. Even here in Louisiana where it rains for days at a time. It crazy that GM will just kinda write off the very high trim level trucks which are pretty much all profit to dealers .
Watch for the rubbing on the bedside where the bumper touched inside the pocket. If it rubs thru the paint you could have a situation where u need to file and claim and have the bedside painted as well to prevent corrosion. This is pretty common on rear end collisions on pickup trucks.
I'm a painter, I wouldn't recommend taking this on by yourself if u are planning to sand and repaint it, unless u have some help from someone with experience. If this was me and I didnt wanna repaint it I would touch up the rock chips with base, and then have some clear bra installed over top to provide a moisture barrier. Then just wait until something happens and u can file an insurance claim to have it repaired properly... hint hint... sand damage , wind damage... these are covered under comprehensive and can include up to a complete paint job to repair rock chips caused by heavy wind and sand.
Yea it was morning time lots of Dew here . The inside is kinda what sold me on it , it's got the rear entertainment like my suburban and the kids really like that. I'm gonna do the hd hood swap they talk about in another thread I think.
