    2000+ mile Camping trip to Rushmore in a Model Y Long Range - First long distance trip and sleeping in the car

    As has been mentioned I liked having a clean mattress off the ground, and the camp mode was especially useful on two nights, one where a bus load of teen boys arrived at 11 pm and started pitching their tents, closing the hatch effectively silenced them. The other where the temperature got to 34...

    2000+ mile Camping trip to Rushmore in a Model Y Long Range - First long distance trip and sleeping in the car

    1977 I was 9 years old when my Grandpa Ben (Swedish name Bengt) bought a 1976 Coachman Leprechaun and first introduced me to camping. On that trip my family went to Mt. Rushmore, Salt Lake City, Reno and down the California Coast. 5 years later he passed from a brain tumor. Having left the...

    I used 6/2 Romex with a 50 amp breaker over a 80 foot run - PITA but worth it.

    Alternate wiring for Mini HUD using Swivel mount

    So awhile back I bought the Hansshow Mini HUD (Best Tesla Model 3 Y Heads-Up Display|Hidden Hud|Hansshow) but did not like the aesthetics of the wire being visible in my eyeline and blocking the vent. Throw in the fact that you have to jam it in the side panel to thread it, I figured this was...

    Money well spent: tire repair kit

    just added a plug kit after the last car had I leak that I could feel, otherwise the 4 other tire issues I have had in my life a plug kit wouldn't help. Two slow leaks, one unfindable leak and a blowout. I still keep a slime kit with inflator in the car as well.

    Towns denying Business to go with all electric vehicles

    By not saying what truck and the type of business they may only be charging every other day (for local hauling), slow charging at night at <100kw, or charge at megachargers on their route.

    Supercharging and Navigation

    I think you can, by voice command ask what chargers are on your route. Helpful if you think you want to get out earlier or later (eg. the SC after the one it lists has a restaurant you'll eat at during a longer charge.

    Towns denying Business to go with all electric vehicles

    It's BS, the average electricity use per person population is about 32 kWh/day (not just their use but everything in the city they live in that makes it a city to be livable and productive) if it was the Tesla semi using a full battery of 500 miles, that's the as much as 1000 people and...

    10% better range by servicing brakes

    interesting about the range improvement you found. I don't have the performance but look forward to checking the difference when it is time to service my brakes. It's funny now that I have the need for oil changes (the disposal requirements sent me to service centers) I am looking forward to...
