RE: Roll up tonneau cover for GMC 2500HD Short Bed

Can’t comment on the roll-ups your interested in, but want to suggest an alternative. I’ve had a 3-fold TonnoPro on my 2013 Silverado SB for 8 years and love it. It was less expensive than most. The soft vinyl cover holds up well (3-4yrs of snow in MN winters). I flip fold it to the front when running with the 5er. It doesn’t require any additional rails or hardware that impinges on the bed opening. Give it a look. That's not a bad idea, I'll take anther look at them. Had one on my Colorado and didn't care for it, but might be easier to use with the 5th wheel. ACCESS LORADO ROLL-UP COVER This is the one I use. It is low-profile, that has slightly canted rails, to allow better clearance for FW towing. I have used several versions of ACCESS covers for 20 years. they are good quality, will last forever. Jerry I'll take a look at them, thanks. I have the Truxedo Lo Pro on my Ram and hit the rail a couple times with my pin box on a real sharp off angle turn. Reason is I have an air ride pin box and let the air get a little low. Last time I had to get a small maul and a block of wood to beat it back in place. Yea, that's what I'm afraid of. I don't have an air ride pin box though, maybe I'll just have to to out to a big parking lot and do some measuring...

Roll up tonneau cover for GMC 2500HD Short Bed

Hi Everyone! I used to have a '08 GMC 2500HD short bed with an Extang RT low profile tonneau cover on it. We towed a 30ft Weekend Warrior 5th wheel with it. Worked fine, until I impacted the rails of the cover with the hitch pin on a couple tight turns. One time, just left a dent in the rail, 2nd time, ripped it off completely. Currently have a '13 GMC 2500HD (same body style) and tow a 30 ft Cougar with it, and currently searching for a roll up tonneau cover for it. I really like the Truxedo Lo Pro, and X15 series (have an X15 series on my Colorado), but am concerned about impacting the rails for the tonneau cover, since they are low profile, they mount inside the bed. Secondly looking at a cover that mounts on the bed rails, but I really don't like the look and don't really want to narrow the clearance between the rails and 5th wheel. Kinda of hard to try these covers out before hand, and they are expensive to buy one that might not work. Anyone have any experience with the Lo Pro and/or X15 on a GM 2500HD short bed towing a 5th wheel? Issues or impacts/damage the cover rails? Or any thoughts on the best option for a roll up cover? Thanks!

Slide propane line - upgraded to steel braided line?

I have a rubber propane line on one of my slides that has a kink in it. While I've tried to re-route it so it doesn't pinch, the kink in the line isn't going away, and causes the line to kink anyways. Gonna just replace it. Was gonna go with a steel braided propane line as a replacement, figure it would be better. Just wondering if there is any reason NOT to go with a steel braided propane line in the slide area? Too stiff, other issues? Thanks for the advice.
