    Long Beach CA Powerpacks

    Moderator note: Thread title updated to reflect actual equipment seen. So, as I was leaving Long Beach Grand Prix today, I saw a whole bunch of Tesla power equipment on the side of a parking structure. But nothing on the map for a supercharger. And nothing on supercharge.info about a future...

    Service options for independent shop ? Los Angeles area

    How about finding a Tesla Authorized Body Shop - like Avio Coach Craft in Van Nuys. They've done a couple of repairs for me.

    Rear trunk won't open

    This just happened to me... Car is out of warranty (58k) and the app would not let me make an appointment (if I selected "my location" I could make an appointment, but if I put in an address it would just hang there, and not let me proceed.) I thought of going to the Service Center (Van Nuys...

    New UI for pre-refreshed model S? Holiday update

    FYI, here is what I mean about them removing the superchargers from the map... BEFORE on the left, AFTER on the right...

    New UI for pre-refreshed model S? Holiday update

    OMG, I hate these "improvements" All they have done is removed frequently used icons on the main menu. Remember when the removed the passenger lumbar support - and backed that up by saying it was only used on 5% of cars? I guess they did not want to do the same research to figure out many...

    65 miles driven - 40% battery loss - Car says 21% battery use

    This is just crazy... Yesterday I drove for 47 minutes, and used 15.78kW of power over 43 miles. I was in Parked for 23 hours, 5 minutes, and used 7.36kW of power. My car used 32% of it's power not to drive. Assuming that this number is somewhat typical, my car wastes 2.5 MWh of power every...

    65 miles driven - 40% battery loss - Car says 21% battery use

    Yes, I have sentry mode running. FYI, looking at some more logs. Overnight I'm losing 5% battery. During work, in a parking lot, I lose 3% battery.

    65 miles driven - 40% battery loss - Car says 21% battery use

    I have a 2018 Tesla Model S, 100D. I have MCU2, and AP3. So my dash says I've driven 63.4 miles, and used 21.3 kWh since last charge. However my battery is at 51% and I charged to 90%. I have TeslaFi logging, and the numbers are accurate. (Adding one trip that was not in the photo.) Over 40...

    Thousand Oaks Supercharger - closed for many weeks?

    Thanks. :( Actually used that onramp today; the equipment was surrounded in tape. I was wondering how safe they were from freeway accidents...

    Thousand Oaks Supercharger - closed for many weeks?

    Does anyone know what's going on with the Thousand Oaks (East) supercharger? It's been closed for a few weeks. Tape around it, but no activity...

    Big Bear - where to charge?

    UPDATE. Did the trip. Took the Model X. Charged at the bottom (San Bernadino) and got to cabin at 65%. Cabin had a garage with an outlet! Only Nema15, but okay... Charging was at 12A, 110V, but I got 15-20% overnight. We had a couple of emergency trips to Lake Arrowhead, which took 10% or...

    New 2021 Model S Unveiled January 27, 2021

    The more I look at it, the more it's like a Model 3. No more vents, no more door handles, no more vertical screen... About the only concession to make it superior to the model 3 is the driver's display (and the gimmicky rear display.)

    New 2021 Model S Unveiled January 27, 2021

    Missing classic door handles - looks like they're going with Model 3 version. I wonder if the autopilot stalk will also get moved (ala 3/Y). Door pockets are nice. Dual phone dock is nice. Will be interesting to see how much storage is in center console - do I still get 4 cup holders. Can't...

    Gauging Interest: NIB Founder's Powerwall/ Gateway/ etc. Chicago area

    FYI. https://www.tesla.com/powerwall/design Tesla charge $7500 for the powerwall, $1000 for the gateway. However, there is a 26% Federal tax credit, so $6200. There is also sales tax and installation ($3000).

    Tesla Bike Rack Lock

    Yeah, I'm dumb, but I cannot figure out what you mean to do. I pull out the cable and I have a long cable. That does not seem to lock anything. I would suspect that the cable comes out, loops through the bikes, and then reattaches to the bike rack in such a way that it makes a loop, and the...
