Ford 2017-2019 SD recall tailgate may open on its own

Ford is issuing a safety recall for select 2017-19 Ford F-250, F-350 and F-450 Super Duty vehicles for unintended tailgate opening. In affected vehicles with an electric tailgate latch-release switch mounted in the tailgate handle, water entering the electrical wiring system may cause a short circuit, resulting in unintended switch activation and release of the tailgate latches. This could cause the tailgate to open unintentionally, whether the vehicle is in motion or stationary. This condition may result in the loss of unrestrained cargo, increasing the risk of a crash. Vehicles with a mechanical tailgate release handle are not affected.

Why hasn’t my 2018 F150 been recalled? It has the same tailgate switch as the SDs.
Humm.

If I recall correctly , F150 is built in Michigan. Affected trucks were built in Kentucky, is what recall states. Not sure why it would really make any difference, probably is the same equipment.

F150s are built in Kansas City and Louisville Kentucky.

I just checked the SD pickups are assembled in Louisville and the medium duty trucks are assembled in Ohio.

I knew there was a reason I didn't get that option. Dealer looks at me with a smile and says "watch this" and pushes a button on the key and the tailgate goes down. I says "cool, now make it go up". I didn't order that option. I can get the tailgate down easy enough the hard part is going back up.
