The silicone gaskets, fit tightly/snugly around the cover studs and helps prevent the leaks. Please don't throw me under the bus, but I've also re-used the same nylocs/washers four times now...still no leaks. I also install my covers on the "loose" side. I go around with a short handled ratchet and get all of the nylocs just barely snug to the covers, and then go around one more time hitting each nut another quarter turn or so, in a criss-cross pattern. YMMV.
