This is what an R1 hood looks like when it opens on the freeway...

This forum could write an entertaining book about all of our collective experiences on the Rivian adventure.
How about a sticky to start off with?

Carrier was bringing my truck to the Bellevue SC for maintenance.

He texted me and asked if I saw the hood had opened...

Yikes, that really, how you say? Blows. Perhaps towing backwards is more safe.

There are a few options in the console related to different situations the truck might be under. Two in particular are wash mode and ship/transport mode. I am not certain but either one of these could have potentially reduce the chance of an accidental opening
