    anyone else have this problem? It angers me, I have the truck all nice and clean then I drive off and by the time I get home water has ran from the edges of the bedliner all over the rear quarterpanels. :mad:

    I rinse with purified water so it doesn't leave too many water marks. But yeah, happens to me too.

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    So wipe it off with a microfiber cloth when you get home? It takes two minutes. That's what I do.

    Go to the auto parts store and get the special towels that will not scratch your paint. I dry off everything good. I bought my towels at Autozone for 8 bucks for around 16 towels that are around 1 foot square. I have a 09, my 08 that I traded in got to the point that I could not get the water marks off. The dealer did though as I saw the black 08 in the lot after the trade-in. Guess they used buffers.

    Use a leaf blower to dry off the truck if it bothers you that much. Blow the water out of the tight spots and wipe dry with a towel.

    Trick carried over from motorcycling. :)

    I blow the bed out with a leaf blower...then rinse the bumper one more time because the water that comes out of the bed is not that clean.

    Washing on an incline (nose up) helps too.

    If you add a capful of a waterless car wash, say Optimum No-Rinse, to you wash bucket you will help out those water marks tremendously.

    Just gotta go over it a couple times with a microfiber towel. The water under the bed cap will eventually evaporate as it sits there.

    Be careful...vinegar is acidic and therefore eats paint (allbeit a small amount). Gelcoat is far thicker than automotive paint and is more forgiving.

    I use my air compressor. I blast around the door handles, grille, bedliner, etc. It works great!
