Are truck cap windows leaking?
A new cap, professionally installed should not leak for a long time. Certainly the windows on the cap should be water tight until the seals deteriorate, which should take several years. If it was installed properly to the bed, it should not leak there either.
ARE Truck Caps waterproof?
It is necessary to weatherproof your truck cap / topper, especially when you want to keep the truck bed dry at all times. You need someone to help you hold the topper in place during installation. The hardware required include; aluminum hardware clamps, 1.5 bolts with the 3/8 threading and washer for bolts.
Do Leer caps leak?
We sold Leer, Snug Top and ARE. They all seal very well BUT, trucks that have bed rail caps ( like almost all of the newer trucks do ) can leak at the bulkhead because it sits lower than the bed rail caps. We would always put an additional strip of foam weatherstripping on the bulkhead of the bed to prevent leaks.

The fiberglass all around and under the hinge mount is about 3 times thicker than the rest of the fiberglass ( Leer and ARE do not have this). The hinges are about 2+ times bigger and much stronger than the Leer and ARE hinges.

Can you store a truck cap on its side or end? I don’t think that’s a good idea. In other words, you should store it the same way as if it were installed on the truck.
How do you waterproof a camper shell?
How to Seal a Camper Shell Prepare the area where the shell meets the rails of the truck bed. Apply rubber weather stripping to the camper shell. Seal up any gaps in the camper shell body. You can find leaks by squirting a garden hose at the shell while observing the inside for any water that may penetrate.
Do camper shells leak?
The problem with a lot of fibreglass shells is that they use foam-based seals. Foam has a “memory,” so after it has been compressed for a while, it will retain that shape. As the truck bed will move somewhat independently of the shell, that shape will eventually develop gaps around it, and water will leak through.
