I wonder if the tonneau can be partially opened, I.e. does a second button press stop it…or just reverse direction?

if it can be opened partially that would be useful.
I wondered the same thing, especially since there's only one button.

I was informed that pressing the button whilst the cover is opening or closing will stop the activity. Pressing the button again will reverse direction. So in short, yes.

that’s good news, makes sense that it will work like a garage door opener.

I foresee getting really good at stopping it before all the water/snow/etc gets pushed off. Like rolling down a window to bunch up snow/ice without it falling in. 😬

I would like to see a video of 1) the tailgate dropping while tonneau is fully deployed (CS said it could), and 2) someone crawling inside under tonneau to retrieve items in the event tonneau fails to open.

Where does the tonneau roll up? I can't really tell. The space between bounded by the back seats, the top of the gear tunnel, the back of the bed and the place where the place where it retracts doesn't look large enough.

That is....less than ideal. I had a manual rollup on my Colorado, and the water drained into a special compartment.

There’s a kind of shelf above the gear tunnel. You can see it here.

It seems like a small space but, if it is big enough to hold the power tonneau, I wonder what is done with that space in the Explore package.

I believe in the explorer the manual cover rolls up into the same space. It is just not powered…

So that’s not a slatted cover but some sort of vinyl?

And I’m also wondering how this will work with fresh wet snow on it..that sits overnight..and is basically frozen the next AM.
