    Keeping 12V on to power eCooler

    That’s interesting. One week after camping with a 12 volt ice chest plugged in, I also got a message that the battery needs to be replaced. Being replaced tomorrow.

    12v fridge power

    I also have a 12v frig. My experience is that the 12 volt plug turns off when the car turns off. Camp mode, will keep it on all night but if you stop during the day and your car turns off so does 12 volt plug.

    Supercharger - Susanville, CA (under construction May 2021)

    I’m from the Sacramento area and am anxious for Susanville, Alturas and Burns to open up as I plan a trip to Yellowstone. I know there are other and faster routes but this is the one I want. Can’t wait.

    Disaster Averted!!

    I was on a road with no shoulder driving about 25 mph and I steered the car to the right to avoid a pothole. As my tire got on the white line, the car screeched at me and steered back between the lines. I wasn’t in danger of driving off the road but apparently the car thought I was.

    Winter Road Trip: SoCal to Utah

    Thanks for the posting this. I’ve been through the gorge south of St George and Zion. Both are spectacular and I plan on seeing Bryce and other parks in Utah soon. We just returned from a 7300 mile trip from Sacramento to Florida and back. Not a lot of Tesla’s on the road outside of California...

    Blog Tesla May License Self-Driving Software to Other Automakers

    If you're an OEM and you know you are many years behind in developing this software, it would make sense to license Tesla's. If you're the first to do this, you have a big sales advantage. This would then force others to consider this option as well.

    Precondition car plugged in vs not plugged in

    I also was concerned about range degradation and scheduled an appointment to have the batteries checked. Here is the response I got from the service center. On Nov 10, 2020, at 12:38 PM, Katie Mulock <[email protected]> wrote: Hello, This is Katie, from Tesla Rocklin. We have ran a battery...

    Ultimate EV Road Trip - Circumnavigating North America

    I carry a small 12 volt air pump purchased on Amazon for $30.00 which works great and has been a lifesaver. When I just want the tires all checked and filled I go to Firestone. They will do it quickly and for free. I think most tire stores will do this.

    Need help with buying decision

    I'd go with FSD over long range. The only time you need the range is when going on a trip. How often will you do that? Also all the major highways have plenty of Superchargers so no need for extra range. The full self driving is great on a highway trip - so much more relaxing and the cost is...

    Supercharger - Lincoln, CA (LIVE 14 Oct 2020, 8 V3 stalls)

    The sidewalk next to the transformer across the street is torn up so it looks like the transformer work is in process.

    Supercharger - Lincoln, CA (LIVE 14 Oct 2020, 8 V3 stalls)

    Nice to see all the work going on there. Looks like the time is near after months of inaction. I'll enjoy seeing how fast these V3 chargers are but I doubt I'll use it much as its so close to where I live.

    Full self driving capability

    I bought my Model 3 in January and paid the extra $7,000 for FSD because I wanted it and could afford it. No other explanation is needed for anyone.

    Tesla to Raise FSD Price by $1,000

    I'm surprised at so many here are upset with the FSD price. Obviously, it'll never get to $100,000 or close to it. Elon is just stating the value to someone who has a robotaxi. I don't know what the price should be but I assume it has to do with the cost of the investment to program this plus a...

    Blog Tesla Publishes 'Getting Back to Work' Plan

    It makes sense to move the headquarters out of California for tax reasons but they have a lot invested in the Fremont plant and I don't see them moving anytime soon. I used to live in Fremont and remember the previous closures.

    Sheltering in Place - Charge or not

    I am staying at home also but I do enjoy a ride everyday just to have a change of pace if not to see something new or forgotten.
