A few hundred times. I tend to raise it one or two times when loading for each trip, then once on the trip and once or twice afterwards. It seems like the bungee is a bit to fragile given the difficulty in replacing them. I like the part mzak linked to, it looks far more durable and exchangeable with less work. I wish it was made for FR products.
I guess I'll muddle through this and if my fix doesn't work, then the dealer can take care of it. Thankfully there is a Flagstaff dealer close to me, rather than taking it out to, what seems like East Austin, where the dealer is.
