    Supercharger - Frisco, TX - Preston Road

    I heard a rumor that it was going to be at the new HEB getting built at Main and Legacy. But then again, that could be it. Just a rumor……….

    Epic Road Trip

    @X.l.r.8 thanks for the correction. There was a 3rd chain that I had to hook to my Y. I assumed that the trailer brakes were only emergency brakes that would get triggered if the trailer became unhooked and pulled on the 3rd chain. Good to know. Thanks again. And you're right. It is a chore...

    Epic Road Trip

    It's difficult to come up with something I dislike about the MYLR. If there was one thing, it was driving at night and the annoying red trailer mode icon that showed up on the screen. During the day the icon would be blue, but any time I turn on the lights, the icon would go red. Everything...

    Epic Road Trip

    It was transported on a truck. I have OVMS installed so I could check the GPS and see that the truck had several drop offs and/or pickups in Houston. After driving cross country for a few days, then the truck had some drop offs and/or pickups in Oregon and Washington before the roadster was...

    OVMS Plot 12v history

    Is the 12v battery history only available in the OVMS Android app? I've got the apple app, and I've never seen the 12v history.

    Epic Road Trip

    The Uhaul trailer did not have brakes, only lights. I didn't measure tongue weight. The weight of the loaded trailer only compressed the suspension on the Y about as much as me standing on the ball hitch (I weigh in the neigborhood of 200 lbs). Visually, everything looked nice and level, most of...

    Epic Road Trip

    I didn't talk to the VW owner. I didn't even realize it was an ID4 until I looked at the pictures later. The ID4 was parked in a non-charging spot, and I assumed it was just another ICE car. The superchargers were in the parking lot for the city hall, and there were some regular and handicapped...

    Epic Road Trip

    DEFINITELY! I had a lot of fun on this trip. I'm always up for a good road trip. Our 2021 Model Y already has over 30k miles on it. We've been to Connecticut and back twice. I have dreams of road trips with the Cybertruck. I did a lot of daydreaming on this epic road trip. :) :)

    Epic Road Trip

    I've got a Ford F-150 that takes regular gas. I only get about 14 MPG when driving around town. I've pulled a lot of trailers with that thing, but I don't have the courage to calculate my mileage when pulling trailers. See no evil, hear no evil.........

    How long ago was that? It seems recently the cost of shipping has gone up. About a year ago, I shipped the roadster to Seattle, and it was about $1800. Now its $2300. TX <-> Seattle.

    Epic Road Trip

    I got a quote for $2300 to move the roadster from Seattle to Frisco TX in a covered transport. I've been thinking about an epic roadtrip for years now. I had a lot of fun driving cross country. It wasn't about the cost savings to me. When you add up the cost of renting the trailer $850, hotels...

Here are the highlights of the trip. Click the links...

    Today's Roadster Orphan

    2008 Tesla Roadster #379 is still for sale in California. 500+ days on the market. $42k and 53,712 mileage. Has anyone seen it in person? I'm curious why it hasn't sold. It can't be just because of the high mileage and less desirable color? Maybe its my own rationalization at work, but there...

    What did you park next to? (Or what makes the Roadster look tiny?)

    Based on my limited observation, the CAC does drop after a road trip. My theory is that when I'm driving close to home, the SOC rarely ever dips below 50% SOC. But on a road trip, I sometimes stretch down to 10% SOC to get to my destination or charger. When the SOC goes lower, the car now has...

    Blog Tesla to Raise $2 Billion in Stock Offering

    Along with what others mentioned. Based on current price at $800 per share, it doesn’t really matter to institutional buyers who buy a million dollars of shares. But for the individual investor who wants to invest $1000, they can buy one share at $800. But after a 10:1 split they can buy 12...

    Any problem with two HPWC Power Sharing to charge Roadster with CAN Sr?

    Here's an update to my post above. The behavior of the load sharing protocol on the TWC has been changing lately. In the past I saw the power divided to each car based on SOC. The car with a higher SOC got less power, and the car with lower SOC got more power. Recently I observed that the TWC...

    2 Tesla wall connector load sharing

    I observe the same thing as Rocky above. In the past, the two wall connectors seem to communicate to the car to determine the SOC and the amps were divided so that the car that had the lower SOC got more amps. It seemed like the power was divided so that both cars would finish charging at...

    DFW Airport Charging Rant!

    I’m not sure if all the J1772 charging spots at DFW are on the 1-2 hour parking level at the parking garage, but the ones I saw and used were definitely in the area where all the ICE parking spaces arround were the short term (1-2) hour parking spaces. Since they’re in the short term parking...

    Supercharging old timers

    I have a 2015 model S 11/15 build with 85k miles on the odometer. About a week ago I supercharged at a relatively low SOC about 13%. I saw 123kW after plugging in. I’m on software 2019.24.4. I’m the original owner. This is the first time I saw 123kW. The typical max is 115 or 116.
