I'm tired of these having to be put back on almost every time I drive. Does this happen to anyone else?

Yes! And I noticed it after I drove my truck home 250 miles from the dealership. The dealership put in a line x spray in liner and now the little Tabs are to short to keep the covers on so what I did was to buy a rubber bed Mat and put the covers on and then put the rubber bed mat over the top of them that holds them down but yes I have the same problem.

Gotta be your Liner causing this. I have no Liner and have never had this issue, wish I could give you a suggestion on a fix, good luck.

I just solved this issue coincidently. I have a spray in liner as well and went to put them on and there was not way they were going on without destroying them. The lip of the plastic ring needs to fit in a lip on the 5th wheel ring coming through the bed. Bed liners make it more problematic as it raises the bed level enough to be an even bigger pain.

What I did was stick the 5 pieces on a baking sheet and place them in the over on the lowest setting, about 150F I believe for about 10 minutes. I removed each one at a time and ran out to the back of the truck and snapped them in place by starting on one side and ringing it around the 5th wheel piece. I also used a rubber mallet to make sure the flanges where as flat as could be on bed while warm right after I snapped it in. I took me almost a year to finally get around to putting them on because I tried a few times when they were cold and there was not way. Try at your own risk but it worked great for me and they have not popped off.

I had the same problem with mine... solved the problem by replacing them with these caps.

What year is your truck?? I have a 2012. I Zoomed in on that picture of yours and the caps and the top of the gooseneck look different then mine. Basiclly the cap seems to go out around the hitch where on mine there is a part of the cap that gets pushed down into the inside. I got to grab a screw driver every time just to pop them out.. If there is differences threw the years I wasn't aware of it..

I had a spray in liner put in and mine do the same thing. The liner added heigh which reduces engagement. Yes...it's a pain. No, I haven't done anything about it yet. No, I probably won't spend $100+ fixing the issue (although the CNC machined ones listed above do look good).

I guess a guy could always take a Xacto knife to the bed liner around each opening and make a cut, or feather it down to where the caps would sit low enough to engage the bed.

my 2011 is the same way as your 2012. when I bought the truck the plugs weren't in the hitch, but I found one laying inside the cab in the back. my truck has a spray in liner and the plug fit tight and I needed a screwdriver to get it out. I only have 3 holes instead of 5. I'm assuming this is for a gooseneck hitch only. I've always used a bumper pull trailer so I'm not familiar with the 5th wheel or gooseneck hitches.
