    Supercharger - Memphis, TN (Wolfchase)

    There are restaurants in the area. The hotel provides a safe place to use the restroom, dine and make a visit. Having locations where they have limited hours makes it difficult for using the restroom and feeling secure when no one is there but you. For me Travel Centers/Rest Stops are the ones I...

    Supercharger - Memphis, TN (Wolfchase)

    I have suggested The hotel at Graceland. Security, and plenty of parking. Many tourists will like to stop there. Crosstown Concourse, but they don;t want Proprietary connectors

    Supercharger - Memphis, TN (Wolfchase)

    This location is one of the 5 locations I suggested to Tesla. Thanks for catching the permit! I had been checking for that location. With the IHOP having extended hours it makes for a great restroom break and food.

    New P100d model S failed!!!

    The root cause for my 12v battery issue was a battery coolant heater.

    Memphis - Supercharger

    If there before 2pm, there is an "Another Broken Egg Cafe" breakfast joint around the corner, towards the hospital. It's pretty good.

    Memphis - Supercharger

    Yes, I asked them to shutoff power at the disconnect when not in use. There are several filters, which clog up when power is available to the charger with the fans running continuously. Kept having overheat problems requiring a maintenance crew come out to replace the filters. Please make sure...

    Memphis - Supercharger

    Having traveled to NY/Canada 2 times, the new Memphis SC location distance from I55 is not bad at all just 10 miles each way. Many times I have had to travel more than 10 miles to get to a SC that was not on my route. Nashville comes to mind, that location, when traveling along I40 takes you 12...

    If you ever want to meet up for a bike ride at Shelby farms, let me know. I Love riding and charging there, its source is renewable energy.

    Memphis - Supercharger

    They work wonderfully!! Please use them. If you see some Non EV cars there on the South side, usually they are the staff. They take them to block and make sure they are available for the EVs. If you find them all taken check with the staff in the Visitor Center.

    Memphis - Supercharger

    Not sure if we are talking in circles, but all the locations on the Tesla 2016 Supercharger map, illustrate the Superchargers connecting I30 to I40 via Texarkana as well as Texas to Florida. The big question is, will they complete them by the end of 2016, as the map illustrates. If there are...

    Memphis - Supercharger

    I am sure they will be adding and removing locations, they are mostly leased. It's likely they will have changes. However, their goal will be set by the end of 2016, as outlined on the Supercharger map. Once they have their target met, that commitment is complete. What incentive do they have to...

    Memphis - Supercharger

    Don't disagree with the need, but referring to the Supercharger map at Tesla website, no W Memphis SC planned. They are supposed to be finished at the end of 2016. Of course, they can change their minds. Supercharger | Tesla

    Memphis - Supercharger

    Jackson TN is next, so the gap to Nashville will be manageable. I don't think W Memphis was ever on the map, Little Rock maybe. I believe some of the considerations are for having Memphis on the map for tourists purposes. There were 2 Nashville locations listed a while back to accommodate the...

    Memphis - Supercharger

    Spot on, based upon my my travels using SC, I believe they have found a good location to bridge all the interstate connections and to provide the users with lots of options while charging.

    I don't have the name of the owner for the property of the SC location. No details about the Jackson location as well.

    Memphis - Supercharger

    At the latest Tesla Memphis Road show, the owner of the property was present announced the signing of the contract. He also mentioned Jackson, TN should be right after.

    POLL: Have you had to have your 12V battery replaced?

    12 volt battery replaced about 6 months ago. Recent Battery Coolant Heater fault causing a drain of the 12 volt battery.

    Road trip to Jacksonville, Florida and 12V battery issues

    Yes, I was at a Supercharger in Buffalo, NY I noticed the tow person (not Tesla) prime the battery. No towing issues that I am aware of. What specifically are you asking about regarding towing. When received at Tesla Service, there were no faults on the logs.

    Road trip to Jacksonville, Florida and 12V battery issues

    Same exact problem here, Battery Coolant heater was replaced. There were no logs of any of the faults, so I hope they got it. My battery was not replaced, which is concerning, as the issue may have damaged the battery. One thing which help identify the 12 volt battery weakness, slow response...

    Does everyone have trouble opening their charge port door?

    Inconsistent Charge Port Door Operation I too am experiencing the door problem, but not consistently. The door, when shut after leaving my garage pops open. I experienced this a couple of times, over the 18 months of operation. Recently, while opening the door from the control panel button...

    Wetspot / Leak

    Roof noise I had a similar issue with noise. The technician gave me a good suggestion: Before closing the Sunroof at highway speeds, open the driver/passenger widow a notch to equalize the pressure. - - - Updated - - - I am experiencing a roof leak as well. The 1st occurrence happened at the...

    Memphis - Supercharger

    i have been to SC locations which were off the beaten path. With all the great locations off of I240, we are only talking of a few miles from one side to the other. With I69 coming! the tie in is even better.

    Memphis - Supercharger

    OK, we should be getting closer to when Tesla is adding a Supercharger here in Memphis. Would like to hear input about possible locations and updates. Try to avoid the "why someplace won't be a candidate" but places to promote the locations here in Memphis. The best location I can think of...

    Why the void of SuperChargers in the south (particularly Arkansas)?

    How do we explain South Dakota, Montana, or Minnesota? Tennessee is one of the 6 six states of the Federal EV Project. So is Texas, Arizona and CA. None of the Northern States, except on the west coast were involved. To boot, many of the states which have SCs actively work against sales of...

    Nashville to Memphis and back

    Yes, you should. You will have greater range heading to Memphis, due to going down hill. However, heading back might be tighter. You can charge at Casey Jones village in Jackson (Exit 80A) for a little supplement. Only about 15 MPH charge rate though.

    Supercharger - Nashville TN

    So happy they have started in Nashville. Seems there would have been many options in this city. But I can certainly understand using the service center location. Maybe, they will add a location towards the center Nashville to facilitate I-40 runs. Fingers crossed. Need a Memphis location...

    Tesla Supercharger network

    Memphis and Nashville Memphis and Nashville really need a SC. Tennessee was part of the 6 states of the EV Project. Look at the map I posted, such a baron area for a state which has invested in EVs, and does not inhibit the sale of Tesla's. I hope Tesla puts an emphasis here in this area.
