TONNEAU COVER INFORMATION & CLEANING

QUESTION 1

CAN WATER AND DUST ENTER THE LOADBIN ONCE A TONNEAU COVER IS FITTED?

Yes, water and dust will enter the loadbin via the openings in the tailgate. The pvc or canvas part of the ton- neau is waterproof. If you have a clip on cover fitted and you open the tailgate and look in under the cover, water will come through all the gaps where the light enters. If you have a tie on tonneau cover, water will drip through the stitching holes of the support belts stitched across the cover to hold the braces. Again if you look underneath through the open tailgate water will enter wherever the light comes in. Pack your luggage in refuse bags or plastic containers to keep water and rain off.

QUESTION 2

WHAT IS THE LIFESPAN OF THE COVER?

The manufacturers of pvc and canvas will give a 2 year limited warranty on their products. The sun will damage the cover over time, as well as, all the incorrect products used to clean the material. Car shampoos, car / dash / tyre and leather polishes will damage the tonneau cover. It is recommended that only products without silicone be used to clean the cover e.g. a bit of sunlight dishsoap mixed in a bucket of water used with a soft sponge to wash the cover and then rinsed off with clean water. BH-38 can also be used to wash the cover. Dubbin can be used as a polish. High pressure water hoses will damage the cover.

QUESTION 3

CAN SPARE PARTS FOR THE TONNEAU KIT BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY?

If you purchased a Taunotent product and loose any part e.g. support brace or corner piece etc, it can be purchased separately from us. If in a few years when you need to replace the tonneau cover because of normal wear and tear, you can purchase just the tonneau cover without having to pay for a full kit.
