I got notified today through email by my dealership that there was an open recall on my 2019 RTL-E. I've always kept up on that and taken care of the ones (4) that affected my vehicle promptly so it was news to me. The email stated the following:

Recall #F8M 2017-20 Ridgeline Tonneau Cvr Accsry
Status: Remedy Available

I searched online for recall "F8M" but can't find anything. The NHTSA site doesn't have anything either, but it wouldn't be tied to a VIN since it's an accessory.

Does anyone know what this recall is about and what the remedy entails? Odd that it's a recall and not a TSB which means it must be safety-related.

I got this as well and I have never owned the factory tonneau cover. I was not able to find any info either.

I also have a '19 RTL-E and purchased the factory hard tonneau, so I'm definitely following this. Thunder Dump, do you even have a tonneau cover for your RL? BTW, I have not yet received any notice.

Yes, I have the OEM tonneau cover that was installed by the dealership at the time of purchase.

I received this same Recall Alert (F8M 2017-20) via email from Carfax (via Honda Marysville) regarding the tonneau cover on my 2020 RTL-E. I do not own the OEM tonneau cover, and have no further info.

I'm definitely interested in this. I received a notice - I've gone through 2 of the factory tops - finally switched to something else. I cannot find anything about what this is though...

I just received a recall notice on manufactured installed cover. I do NOT have a manufactured installed cover, but I did install this Trifecta cover myself. I’ve had it for about a year, and no issues so far.

I searched online for quite a while and found nothing about Honda's recall. I did find this forum, so not a total loss. :)

I did find a recall for a GM tonneau cover, and the safety risk was that the tonneau cover could fly off and pose a road hazard to other vehicles. Probably something similar for our covers.

This is exactly what happened to my Honda cover

I received a CarFax notice as well...can't find any verified info on the OEM cover for my '19 RTL-E...I have the security (yellow) straps to prevent the cover from coming off and suspect that is what the recall is about. Cover is quite secure as long as fasteners are properly in place and tight...haven't had any issues with mine since self-installed over 2 years ago.

My OEM hard Tonneau cover has those yellow straps also on my 2019 RTL-T. It is very secure.

Anyone else get a Carfax notification that there was a recall on the factory tonneau covers? Anyone talk to a dealer yet to see what it’s all about?

(F8M 2017-20) They came out with an updated tether kit, should take about an hour to perform the recall.
For anyone that has a factory installed Tonneau cover!
When was the update for the tether? My truck and tonneau were just bought a month ago!
