    Roof rack t-slot/rubber

    I got the T bolts for my Yakima ski racks in with brute force. It wasn't easy, but it does work. The main thing is gripping the bolt as low as you can, so you're applying force parallel to the slot, and not torquing the bolt downward. That said, I've been driving around with bare bolts sticking...

    Airstream/Thor introduce the eStream concept

    The laws of thermodynamics would have something to say about that.

    CCS Adapter for North America

    Isn't that essentially what the Setec adapter is? It converts CCS1 to CHAdeMO, but with a Tesla connector. I'm not sure if there's an additional CHAdeMO to Tesla messaging conversion, or if that's in the car, but they could just omit that if so.

    confused about requirements for wall plug, some clarification please?

    The mobile connector will only charge at 32A, even on a 14-50. There's no reason to use a 60 amp breaker, unless you plan to put in a HPWC instead of a 14-50 outlet.

    Tesla Supercharger map 3Q21 update - comments, complaints, surprises?

    I'd add to that that I-84 needs some chargers east of Scranton. We were driving from Carlisle to Boston on Sunday (day 2 of a trip starting in Asheville, NC), and didn't quite have enough charge at the start to make it to Middletown or Newburgh, so had to charge in Moosic and then again in...

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    Put these on a couple of weeks ago: Enkei TFR 18", with Vredestein Quatrac Pro. So far I'm liking them. There's a slight rumble at about 40 mph, but nothing annoying. Going on my first drive of any distance next week. It snowed after I got to work today and will be gone before I leave, so I...

    Garage Door Opener with Battery Backup (Not Tesla Specific)

    Just FYI, the Chamberlain openers being discussed use motor position to determine door position, so they only alert you if the door is opened by the opener, not if the emergency pull is used, or if it is somehow forced. Aftermarket smart garage door kits, on the other hand, use a position sensor...

    Best ski rack for the Tesla bars?

    For anyone looking at the FatCat, I want to share two issues I had trying to put an older set on the bars -- this shouldn't be a problem with a new one. First, the clamps that go around the bars couldn't close -- they need a longer bolt than originally came with them, and that was backordered...

    14-50 outlet on a 120V circuit?

    All the other replies telling you why this is bad/dangerous/impossible are right, but none explained what would specifically be wrong if you did this. A 14-50 outlet has four conductors, two for 120V out of phase, one neutral, and one ground. A 120V/20A circuit has only three conductors, one...

    Thule XXL roof box

    What do you mean by "fit?" It will attach to the crossbars, but might overhang the roof more than you want. I have a Motion XT L, and it fits well, but I don't have any pics. Looks like the XXL is 14" longer, and comparing the pictures, it looks like the added length is split evenly F/R. I feel...

    Disappearing Bluetooth Door Locking Radios

    I've noticed the number of BT radios change over time, pretty haphazardly. Sometimes I can not open the trunk if the car was locked, and when it has persisted I've seen that the "R" radio was missing. Stopping and restarting Bluetooth on the phone (iPhone X) has always resolved the behavior, but...

    Supercharger - Chestnut Hill, MA

    As of this morning, the chain-link fence is down, but the trailers and porta-potty are still there.

    Supercharger - Chestnut Hill, MA

    I wasn't in a good position to get a picture as I drove by, but the charging stations themselves were going up this morning. Three or four were in place (one leaning a bit, not anchored I guess) and a worker was present at 8 am.

    Cat urine on passenger seat...

    There's a specific Bissell detergent for pet urine

    Cat urine on passenger seat...

    Does that penetrate the vegan leather to get into the foam and back out?
