Tonneau Cover closes crooked

The tonneau cover on my '23 SC (picked up 3 weeks ago) seems to not close all the way on one side. On the right side it closes tight up to the tailgate, but on the left it closes about 1/4 inch away. When open it sits straight against the maintenance cover, at the middle latch point it looks straight. I can't seem to find a manual or anything that might show what can be adjusted. anyone have any thoughts? I know it's not going to be water tight, but I've seen other SCs where the tonneau closes snug against the tailgate.

hopefully the pictures make sense.

Open, a nice even line against the maintenance cover.

And when closed, not so much.

Thanks for any thoughts or ideas or am I going back to the dealer?

You can take it in…but also there are two things that influence the gap at the tailgate. #1. The brackets on the sides that support the tonneau, 3 bolts each side….and adjust. Or #2. Of the tailgate itself does not have the latches adjusted evenly, or the stop is not quite even….and the tailgate can close slightly crooked…and give the same appearance…of a gap. Or it could be a combination of both.
