    Clipper Creek charger at a Tru hotel

    Staying at a very new Tru (by Hilton) hotel, and every time I try to make use of the (clipper creek) charger, the desk personnel must turn it on and off several times before the Model 3 will begin charging. I wonder if their charger is screwy, or the car needs a few minutes to get ready, or...

    Rock Magnet?

    It seems as if our Model 3 gets an inordinate number of rock strikes while driving. We've already got 3 dings in the windshield, and there have been countless hits elsewhere. Anyone else experience this? Is it aerodynamics? Coincidence? Are we just lucky? Weird.

    charging speed reduced - check adapter (Red "T")

    I was about to ask for help with the mobile connector, as we were getting a " charging speed reduced check adapter" message, and the "T" in the blinking green TESLA displayed upon it had turned red. Turns out the adapter was ever-so-slightly pulled out of the mobile connector. Making sure it...

    Long Trip - Supercharge to 100%?

    As I understand it you shoudn't charge the vehicle to 100% on a daily basis, but it's OK once in awhile, such as when traveling across the country. Is this correct, or should we keep it to 90% while traveling? Had it only 4 days.

    Keeping Batteries Cool: True or False?

    Hello. New here. Heard that excessive heat inside the vehicle when parked is bad for the batteries, and so one should keep the interior cool via the app. I doubt this is true, but hey, why not ask the experts?
