Has anyone with the factory Mopar rolling tonneau cover had problems with water pooling in a few spots between the crossbars? If so - any ideas for fixes or a way to tighten the cover up some? Thanks!

Same. Thinking of maybe bowing the crossbars some and see if that will help the water run off.

@Gr8ful do you have any pictures of what yours looks like with the water pooling? I want to see if ours is doing it similarly.

The pools are small and blow off with 15-20 mph. The left side doesn't fold over nicely as the right side does. This may be why. I do remember someone having their cover replaced by the dealer. I have zero faith in dealer service so I stay away from them if at all possible.

Yeah mine are similar I think. They are around a foot or so and seem to blow off when driving around. It seems like over time it may stretch it out though. I don't want to deal with the dealership either.

Yep, same here. Even froze once so I had ice-frisbees that looked like throwing stars at the cars driving behind me! I'm sure they were happy.

That sucks. I think i will try to bow the crossbars some and let you all know how it goes. There doesn't seem to be any other way to increase tension on the cover.
