    Towing travel trailer with Model Y

    After having towed our 3400 pound (loaded) camper for a couple years now, I believe the 3500 pound rating might be more tied to stopping, not accelerating. I have no problems accelerating with the camper, even up some steep WA hills. Where I get nervous is with the braking power (and we even...

    Supercharger - Burlington, WA

    We'll be towing a camper and likely stopping here for a charge this weekend. Do we know if the new chargers are configured to allow for pull-in charging (with a trailer hanging off the back of the car)?

    Supercharger - Sutherlin, OR

    This site will have over twice as many plugs as the next largest site in either WA or OR. I thought this size of supercharger station was only possible currently between Northern and Southern CA (in the West, anyway). While a station at this site was badly needed to fill in the largest gap...

    Supercharger - Ridgefield, WA

    This looks to be better positioned for freeway access though, not to mention a v3.

    Should I Buy a Used 2013-2014 Tesla Model S?

    My 2012 Model S has around 115,000 miles and still drives like a dream with no issues. (The previous owner had the battery and motor replaced in 2015, but the car had maybe 50k miles at the time).

    Supercharger - Federal Way, WA

    What's the motivation? Do the cables contain valuable materials, or is it just to spite Teslas/EVs?

    Supercharger - Coquitlam, BC

    Those new highrises all likely have numerous residential charge points within their garages. Here in Seattle that's a requirement for new construction and presumably the same is true for the forward-thinking Vancouver area.

    Supercharger - Tukwila, WA

    Might be another casualty of the ongoing concrete strike.

    Towing travel trailer with Model Y

    We have a trailer with similar weight metrics, and our camper dealer also told us that weight distribution hitches were not needed with our setup, only sway bars. We’ve towed for several thousand miles now with our Y and have not experienced any sway or rear sagging. I do drive extremely...

    Supercharger - North Bend, WA

    That's our go-to spot when we charge here.

    Supercharger - Tukwila, WA

    They will be, but I think the joke is that this could take longer than the three months.

    Supercharger - Bellevue, WA

    Wasn’t sure exactly which thread to post this in, so this one seemed the closest. Yesterday while driving by the Bellevue Fred Meyer, there was definitely a L3 charging facility going in at the south end of the Fred Meyer parking lot. I couldn’t tell if it was Tesla or EA as I was driving by...

    Towing travel trailer with Model Y

    How is the power throttle controlled to the trailer wheels? Does the trailer sense the pull on the hitch from the car and power itself accordingly? Or is the throttle wired into the car throttle?

    Supercharger - Sprague, WA

    Thanks for the update! A good question to ask these crews are if they are working on any other Tesla projects. They often have a lot of good intel on the status of other projects (even ones we may not know about).

    Tesla CCS Combo 1 Adapter User Manual (in English) Generates Questions

    My 2020 (Oct) Y came with CCS support. ^^
