New 19 Silverado 3500 drw small problems

After 7 months of researching all drw options, picked up a new silverado 3500 drw Duramax ltz Monday on a pretty heavy discount (per the dealer 2020 drw is supposed to be able to be ordered starting January).

Today, I noticed the plastic on top of the bed rail is already warped and detaching from the bed. I also found the driver side rubber seal under the hood was detached and just barely staying in the engine bay. It goes in Saturday to enable the engine block heater recall so I am going to have them look at these 2 issues.

Are there any other common items I should focus in on to get ahead of? Goal is to get it ready by April to have a 17k toy hauler attached to it for some extended stay road trips.

The cap snaps into rectangular holes in the bed side, it is a very tight fit.
one or more pins on the plastic cap are not fully snapped in.
