    I want to clean up my Taco a little to get some road salt and dirt off but I'm concerned about taking it through a car wash with the cover still in place. Has anyone run their Taco through a car wash with the high pressure water, brushes and air drying and what were the results? If I have to take it off I will but thought it might need a little cleaning too.

    Thanks

    I have an Access L/E soft cover and go through a car wash about twice a month... Lazer wash (touchless, high pressure). I have no problems with it...

    Most of my trucks have had tonneau covers. Never had a problem with car washes. touchless, or not. As long as the supports are there.

    I went to the car/truck wash today and everything went fine. It was one of those touchless kind. I was concerned more about the extreme forced air drying coming from the side and lifting the cover. All went well and I was glad to get the salt off. Thanks to those that posted.
