    California, LA to San Jose - 1st trip (need advice!)

    Aside from all the great Tesla-specific tips in this thread, remember, you can still stop at a truck-stop and use their restrooms and window cleaning tools. Been on quite a few long trips in my T and I always consider the ubiquitous truck/travel stops for “facilities” and services.

    Supercharger - Gallup, NM

    The fear there is: “You can put a tuxedo on a goat. It’s still a goat.”

    Plugging in every day

    It doesn't seem ambiguous to me though. When you are not using the car, plug it in (if you can, anyways).

    First Time using a Super Charger this weekend, I got some questions....

    All good advice so far. I’ll chime in with a few tips as well. Remember to check for the type of supercharger you are considering for a stop; there are three to consider (note: I’m referring to Superchargers not destination chargers or other Level 2 locations not offered by Tesla). The type...

    Tesla App and SolarEdge Inverter

    I’m not @reddy, but Tesla installed our system the same way- using Zigbee instead of WiFi or hardwired Ethernet. What they didn’t do was offer any instruction on how to connect to the SolarEdge site and to this day (a year later), I haven’t felt a need to.

    I finally got a Tesla!

    Unlimited free supercharging was attached to the car itself for awhile, but they changed that to the "lifetime" of the ownership at some point (I can't remember when they switched that and I'm sure someone will chime in with the details). His MX might be one of those that is attached to the car...

    Supercharger - Casa Grande, AZ

    I was on 2B last Thursday, 5/21, and it got up to 120 kW. Was one of 3 Tesla’s there. All charger stalls *looked* normal. Can’t say I tried them all.

    Supercharger - Gallup, NM

    Gov. Lujan Grisham authorizes Gallup lockdown According to the article, apparently there is a major COVID-19 outbreak on the Navajo Nation. Also, seems the Gov. authorized the NM National Guard to assist the NMSP. The article does also say the lockdown ends on Monday (4 May, 2020).

    Supercharger - Gustine, CA (12 V2 stalls)

    Yup. At Gustine (Santa Nella), there is a Love’s and a TA, both very good truck/travel centers, very close. Best advice is to check Google/Apple Maps for nearby centers as above.
