    J1772 adapter stuck

    I went to a J1772 charger in Hollywood, CA last night. Plugged into a J1772 Level 2 charger using my adapter. When I went to unplug, the adapter refused to separate from the cable. No amount of force (even two people trying to pull the adapter apart from the charger cable) would remove the...

    Supercharger - Jackson, CA (LIVE 5 Nov 2020, 8 V3 stalls)

    Anyone have any updates on this location being open? It still does not appear on my in car NAV and I'm going up that way soon.

    Amazon Echo Auto - Sirius XM

    The audio for the Echo routes through your phone. So you don't add the Echo as a new bluetooth device in the car. Therefore, you don't have the issues of having two bluetooth devices active at once. You just need the Alexa app installed on your phone to make it work.

    Amazon Echo Auto - Sirius XM

    Got an Amazon Echo Auto a few days ago. Put it in the center console of my Tesla Model 3 connected to the cigarette lighter connector. Have been using it to stream Sirius XM via the phone. SO much better than trying to grab and unlock my phone every time I want to start Sirius XM or change...

    Charging my model 3 in Hawaii with an hoa

    In California, at least, the rule is they have to let you put a charger in at your expense IF it can be done safely. And then, there are a BUNCH of architectural guidelines and safety guidelines that have to be met (including getting your charging infrastructure approved by the city / county...

    Charging issue

    Having an issue I think has been addressed before on here. New 2020 Model 3 LR dual motor I picked up in December. When I try to charge it says the charging cable is not secure. Appears on the left side of the charging port a black piece may have broken off? See attached photos. Will Tesla...

    Internet connection speed

    I have the one year trial of premium connectivity. Have tried running multiple speedtests in multiple locations on the browser using Fast.com and speetest.net. The fastest I can seem to speedtest anywhere in Southern California is a download speed of 5mbps. Does AT&T throttle Tesla's...

    Plates and registration

    Picked up my Model 3 on December 28. Haven't seen my California plates or DMV registration arrive yet. Has anyone else with a late December pick up date received theirs yet? Want to know when I should begin to worry... and I want my plates so I can apply for my carpool stickers!

    Lone pine, CA supercharger

    If you look at the California supercharger thread you will see that it happened this week sometime. Unknown why or when the new wrapped up chargers will go online but for now only four are there.

    Supercharger - Lone Pine, CA (LIVE 28 Jan 2015, expanded Dec 2019, 8 V3 stalls)

    Can’t believe they ripped out six stalls and left only four. Last weekend all ten were in use when I arrived — I can’t imagine four working out too well this holiday weekend. :(

    Lone pine, CA supercharger

    Feel free to delete this post? Found the same question in another post. But my question was why lone pine went from ten Superchargers to four this week — I know they have three new ones under construction but until they get those online it’s gonna be a terrible weekend for charging there with...

    Sentry mode USB

    Looking at adding an SSD for sentry mode, but my front two USB ports are already in use with Tesla's wireless phone charger. Can anyone recommend a USB splitter and SSD drive that would work well so I can use both the wireless phone charger (which can charge two phones at once) AND also have...

    Tesla rage

    Was pulling up towards my condo complex driveway when a pickup truck that had been following me up the street in Long Beach, CA for all of one block pulls to the left of me with his passenger window rolled down and honks. So I roll down my window to see what he wants. As soon as my window is...

    Parking at Los Angelos Union Station
