    Model Y Towing - Experiences Post here

    Just took my new Flagstaff T12RB Hard-sided fold-up camping trailer on a test run from Denver up to the mountains, specifically, Pine Valley Ranch open space. 43 miles uphill averaged 517 Wh/mi 43 miles downhill averaged 316 Wh/mi Overall average 417 Wh/mi at speeds ranging from 35-65. Average...

    Camping in a Model Y

    Sorry for the late reply. I used the Tesla 14-50 adapter for 50-amp service on this trip. For the next trip, to the same park, the 50 amp service wasn't working so I used the 30 amp service. I don't think that Tesla sells the required TT-30 adapter for the Gen 2 mobile charger. I found a TT-30...

    Side view mirror sag

    Same here, most noticible on passenger side. It seems not to return all the way when unfolding the mirrors.

    What will you name your Model Y?

    "Nervous Nellie" This car is very cautious. Brakes for anything and everything, and sometimes... nothing at all! :)

    I had the same issue with front hood sensor failure messages. Mobile Service replaced the front hood latch, then a couple weeks later they installed the harness overlay as the problem had reoccurred. The Mobile Service Tech was uncomfortable with doing the harness overlay in my garage since...

    How much range reduction from pulling a Uhaul trailer?

    I pulled a lightly loaded 5x8 UHaul box trailer with my MY on an 87 mile round trip. I averaged 370 Wh/mi vs 231 Wh/mi for the same trip without the trailer Speed was 55-60 most of the trip with the trailer, and 60-65 for the same trip without the trailer. If I did the math right, this means a...

    Auto high beam behavior

    I have Auto High Beam disabled, because I've gotten tired of blinding people. Still, when the car starts up, it enables Auto Headlights, then when the headlights come on the first time, they go to brights within a few seconds. I manually dim them and they will stay dim after that. So, my startup...

    Firmware 2020.44.X

    Just got this update and very excited about using the Set Current Speed option. Went out to test it on Colorado CO-470 (controlled access highway with a 65 mph speed limit). It still drops the set speed to 50 mph and starts braking every time the highway crosses another road. All I can think...

    Post your Travel trailer that you tow with your Y

    Nice job. I also installed the P3 and heartily agree on what a pain it is to connect the pig tail to that buried connector.

    Post your Travel trailer that you tow with your Y

    This is the same size ball mount and ball that I've been using for towing U-Haul trailers with my Y. Works good, I think the next step though, is to to have a tab welded to it for a friction anti-sway bar to attach to. I haven't done it yet, but looking at a Reese anti-sway bar.

    Post your Travel trailer that you tow with your Y

    I've been looking at the Equal-i-zer hitch for a while, but still undecided if I want one. There are a couple issues when using it with the Y. The shank is too long, exceeding the 8.5 inch length Tesla allows, and there is the issue that Tesla doesn't technically allow weight distributing...

    Post your Travel trailer that you tow with your Y

    I love that retro look. I considered this trailer a while back and rejected because it seemed like it would have way too much drag. Sure has a lot of nice features, though. I might have to give it another look! :)

    Do you regret paying for Full Self Driving?

    I bought FSD primarily for use on long-distance highway driving. I use Navigate on Autopilot a lot and think it works well. I don't regret buying it, but that said, I don't trust it yet for driving local roads. I notice you are considering towing a boat. Be sure you look carefully at the offset...

    Post your Travel trailer that you tow with your Y

    In my case, moving up from tent camping, an A-Frame style hard-sided pop-up seems ideal. I've been considering the Aliner LXE which has a wet bath of sorts in it, and a Rockwood A122, which doesn't.

    Service appointment no longer showing in Tesla app

    I would try and get thru to someone at the Service Center who can look at what happened and reinstate the appointment. I had this happen to me once and the SC found that the appointment was in a status of "canceled by the customer". I had been trying to modify the appointment and may have...
