F150 soft bed cover unlock to roll...??

Okay. Not quite a Jayco question...but I have this soft bed cover. I've never had to unlock or unroll it. HOW does it come unhooked? Theres a lever but I'm not quite sure if you pull or push. it, etc. I've been assign with it but I don't want to break it.

Mine you first pull that lever towards you to release the tension. Then lift the edge up to release it from the U shaped slot the ends are in. Then roll.

To put it back lift the tailgate then unroll and put the back edge of the front lip in the slot and push down firmly.

I wasnt able to test it yesterday because of the rain and my EcoFlow being n the back. I've applied pressure both way and it doesn't want to budge. I'd try harder but it would be nice to know which way to actually push it. I'd hate to push it so much I mess it up, then my cover is slack and I can't have that...I'm leaving in about an hour.

I'll try it once I get home in a few days.

I gave you wrong info. Pull it towards you and the top will release. Sorry!

Even thru a car wash it's dry. Of course it's rolled up when I'm towing the 5er.

The picture I just posted was taken 10 minutes after I came thru the car wash.

Ive never had a tonneau cover, but wife wants us to get one now that were RVers and need to use the bed for storage on our trips. I worry about leakage so found your comments about the dryness after a car wash interesting. What brand and model do you have?

Thanks, that must be a good tonneau cover. I've asked a lot of people the same question and the usual answer is that they leak a little or a lot.

What cover do you have?

Not necessarily a recommendation however, my 2017 Chevrolet came with this style tonneau cover (dealer installed and not branded) and it has never leaked even a drop of rain or car wash water. I wasn't sure if I would like it however after 7 years, no leaks, still looks great, it appears to be a very good design. I leave it on most of the time so perhaps that matters and I like the roll-up design over the hard covers. ~CA

I ordered it online. It's a Gator brand. Good quick shipping and good customer service also. I ordered a tri-fold that would not clear my fifth wheel hitch when folded up. They sent me a roll up model that was easy to install and paid for the return shipping.

I have had an undercover tri-fold worked great on two different trucks about 5 to 6 years then the seams started leaking. Not terrible but still a leak. Have purchased a TruXedo Sentry CT and the only place I have seen water was around the tailgate but not into the bed so everything is staying dry. Have had about 3 years and it has been thru Florida and surrounding states in the rain and even in Southwest Missouri with no problems. Like the rollup as it gives me full access to bed which the tri fold did also but if I needed full bed it was always folded up against back window. Rollup fits fine rolled open and can still se out back window.

I did get the cover unlocked, finally. I pulled really hard and it finally un-latched. I worried I'd not get it re-latched, with rain coming that night, but I was eventually successful.

Put a little down pressure on the top, just above the latch. Should make it easier. You have to be careful when latching it to make sure both sides are in the correct position before attempting to latch it.

I broke a small plastic piece on mines latch and they were fast to send a replacement part.
