    Charging keeps stopping.

    I have a 2021 Model Y LR and about a month ago I got a message on my phone app that the car had stopped charging. It has gotten progressively worse. Today it would only charge 3 or 4 % before it stopped. The only way to get it to start is to unplug the car and replug it. I know that it isn't...

    Vacation homes with chargers

    Tesla owners and other EV owners should keep asking for charger availability. Possibly AirBnB and VRBO will eventually get the message. Plus owners may begin to see that there is a demand.

    HOA Charger Installation Requirements

    VA has a right to charge law, but Condo Assns and HOAs can add restrictions which my not prohibit add a charger, but make it very difficult and expensive, plus add threatening wording like they can remove it at the owner expense. Not sure if all this would stand up in court. Unfortunately...

    California HOA Insurance

    State Farm told me that there would be no charge to add my HOA as additionally insured. Both State Farm and USAA have never had a claim. It is difficult to price with no underwriting data. I wish that Tesla were willing to help with this. These decisions by HOAs seem to be completely...
