When you say you slide yours back do you mean towards the tailgate? Do you have the tailgate step?
I did 2 hours of reading last night and it seems everyone that has water issues around the tailgate has the step and due to the low areas where the step is no one has figured out how to stop water from coming in there yet.
I just installed my F1 3 days ago and had some water inside the bed yesterday after driving through a 15 min heavy storm.

Unfortunately you will not get it 100% waterproof. I get a little in here and there after almost 4 years but I use a bedrug liner so nothing gets wet because everything is up higher than the bed floor.

I have had mine on now for almost a year and i only get a little around my tailgate and i have the step as well.. but its nothing major and still better than having to deal with removing my old hard cover ( that would leak around the side seals if driving long distances on the freeway in a rain storm) so i guess it serves its purpose well enough..

I slid mine back a little so more of the flap covers more of the tailgate.
How does the bedrug stop things from getting wet? If the water drips in from the tailgate it rolls under the rug?

Thanks

I know this is an old thread an all, but have any of you that are having issues with leaking double checked to make sure your drain holes are lined up? I've noticed a couple of times climbing in and out of the bed that they'll move.

We had some rain today for about 30 mins and I'm still getting water in both front corners and some over the wheel bumps.
Tonight I hit it pretty hard with the hose and I see where it is coming in on the front corner driver side. In the pic just to the left of the drain tube you can see a little silver looking circle...that a water drop. Seems there is also a small gap between the outside front corner and the seal. Maybe I need to re-tighten the clamp down near that end of move it down closer to the drain area. It also looks like my holding down bracket on the driver side rail is bent. Not sure if that is causing issue.
I've also noticed it coming in around the bottom of the drain hose on the passenger side where it goes thru the bed. Has anyone put silicone around these?
Regarding water over the wheel bumps, it seems some of my rubber seal is not sitting flush along the rails.

Also...I emailed Julian at Bak to get his thoughts. Got an email back giving his new "@me.com" email address and said for any Bak related correspondence to email a guy named Charley. So I did. Seems like Julian isn't with the company any more...I was under the impression he was the owner.

I have not had a chance to have the truck sit in more than 30 mins of rain and if I'm getting this much water in a short period of time I can only imagine if it rained overnight!

Pics attached.
Thanks for the help.

Julian sold out. Good thing because he was useless with the countless problems I had with my rollx. Problem is, Charlie isn't much help either. He will blame you for installing it wrong.

I've now sent Charly 2 emails (one last night and one not long ago) and no reply yet.
Trying to figure out if I need to do some more tweaking of the install or if the top is bad.

I read posts where some people have really no leaks at all and then ones where people have leaks. Not sure what makes the difference!
