Default Warped bed rail caps / tonneau cover

So my bed rail caps warped when it warmed up this spring. Took it to the dealership and they replaced both under warranty, 3 weeks later warped again. They're saying they may not replace them under warranty again because the warping is likely caused by my tonneau cover (Truxedo Lo Pro QT). They say that the warping is caused from the way the tonneau cover mounts to the rails of the truck. Anyone else have this problem?

Yes but the metal of my bed is warped. I have learned that you only need to tighten the clamps just tight enough that the cover doesn't slide left and right.
I've tried to bend them back down with only slight success by standing on a 2x4 on the bed rail. Who would have thought the metal on the rail would be weak enough to bend by hand tightening the clamps? Not me.

I have not figured out why the Gen 4 Rams bed rail under the rail cap is made so uneven

The Gen 3 & earlier bed rails were smooth, people only put rail caps on to protect the paint
