    Zion and Bryce Canyon in peak summer season

    We stayed at the Bryce Canyon Inn in Tropic, and we were there the week before the 4th of July last year (2020). There were two Teslas the first night but only one the second. As usual, I left my cell phone number on my dash in case a third showed up late at night.

    Window not fully closed alerts

    This does indeed seem to work. Did it yesterday, and haven’t seen any issues in more than 24 hours, and I’ve used the car a lot in that time.

    Accessing the rear parking sensors

    I’m in San Jose. I either need to do it myself or call Brooks motors in Fremont.

    Accessing the rear parking sensors

    I have essentially this same problem, detailer knocked one loose. Where do I look for all the bolts? I ran into a Tesla mobile service tech at a supercharger last week, and he told me that pulling the bumper cover off was the only way to fix those sensors.

    Gen 1 mobile connector using 220v

    Gen 1 mobile maxes out at 40 Amps in the US, but numerous people have had the plugs get hot and melt down. It’s best to manually adjust the amps to 32 to guard against this. The Gen 2 mobile connectors max out at 32 Amps, I believe.

    SuperCharger - Winnemucca NV

    Looks like time for Tesla to expand the Winnemucca super charger. All four stalls are full, and I’m the fourth car waiting. Lovelock was full earlier too, but it cleared out quick.

    2016.5 90D Charging Questions

    The car is set to ideal range, not rated, probably. Flip the setting to rated and see what it says. A full charge on my 2016 90D with 60K miles is about 272 rated miles. It was 294 when new I believe.

    Supercharger - Reno, NV

    Supercharger at the Atlantis completely full tonight and one spot is ICEd. This guy should be towed.

    SF Bay Area Residents - Are You Really Saving Money vs Gas?

    Ask an electrician to give you a quote. It won’t be cheap, but may save money in the long run for some people.

    TPMS Failure?

    Sensors are widely available. I got one from the America’s Tire where I usually buy tires. Sounds like your tire shop may be sub-standard.

    Model S Tires

    The car is heavy. And even those of us that are sedate drivers still accelerate quite a bit faster than most of the ICE cars around us. It’s so effortless and quiet you don’t even notice. I’ve gotten about 25k miles out of the original MXM4s, which were down to 3/32s when replaced. My...

    SF Bay Area Residents - Are You Really Saving Money vs Gas?

    Nighttime charging also makes use of hydro-electric, wind-based and nuclear power.

    SF Bay Area Residents - Are You Really Saving Money vs Gas?

    I live in San Jose, and unlike you have very low power demands during the day. 82% of my usage is off-peak and 10% is partial-peak. My entire electric bill is now less than I was spending on gas for the Prius I had before getting my Model S. I think you definitely need to put in a solar...
