    How did you get your SolarEdge Physical Layout

    I got the serial numbers off the panels, but they do NOT correspond to the serial numbers listed in the SolarEdge account. I sent an email to q-cells and was informed that the solaredge serial numbers are internally generated. Unless I'm mistaken, the only way to map after the fact is to cover...

    Emporia Vue is an Interesting Companion to Solar and Powerwalls

    So I took a look at this and am wondering how I would install the Gen 2 Vue if I don't have whole-house backup. I have my main panel with a sub-backup panel. If the Vue goes in the main panel, the sub will be totally lumped together as one value, no? Not sure how the plain Vue would work with...

    Model 3 Interior Trim Panel clips / fasteners

    SF Tesla service center or store? I'd be surprised if the SC doesn't do parts. I've generally called the SC, asked for a price on a part # and then ordered through them for pick up. I don't believe they deliver.

    Second dashcam setup. Yay or nay?

    Second dashcam setup. Yay or nay?

    Mine was pretty much installed the same way. I ordered a mount from France which was cheaper, but it was mostly 3d-printed. It worked. My BlackVue died after 13 months, and they wanted $150 to repair/replace. Ended up getting a $100 dash cam off Amazon which has a higher resolution, but not...

    Second dashcam setup. Yay or nay?

    FYI, there have been a few instances of accidents where TeslaCam did NOT record the actual incident (my own experience included), so better to have redundancy, especially if you already have the cam. Ultimately your decision, though.

    Recent Accident- Sentry/Dashcam did not record the Accident!!

    I had the same issue in Aug 2019, but my Blackvue recorded the accident. Car was totaled, so promptly bought another and still have a secondary dash cam for redundancy (Blackvue died after 13 months).

    Mirror top cap removable w/o housing disassembly?

    I cracked a couple of the portions of the housing that clip on, so be careful. I actually removed mine before the video came out, so if you follow the instructions, you should be good.

    DIY Carbon Red Plastidip on the '17 S

    I did my 3 white w/abalone pearls. Subtle, but looks like mother-of-pearl. I'm considering carbon red when I'm ready to change. Did you use only the carbon red pearls or did you also get black betty pearls per the kit? Thanks.
