    Gen 1 Charging Cable Stopped Working/Trips Breaker

    Don’t have the time to look through the thread but it might have been this one or at least provide info you might need to consider. https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/master-thread-definitive-14-50-nema-outlet-guide.140694/page-3

    Gen 1 Charging Cable Stopped Working/Trips Breaker

    I’d start at the wall. Don’t want a fire starting in there. I believe I have read on TMC somewhere that sometimes the inside wall wiring to the outlet (14-50 in your case) can get loose over time (thinking maybe due to heating of wires and connectors over time?) and should be checked, so it...

    How to tell after power outage if you are using PW Batteries or if the grid is back on?

    True. I only knew when it happened as our intercom system’s speakers make a static noise when the Grid system comes back up for some reason. We do have whole house back up.

    How to tell after power outage if you are using PW Batteries or if the grid is back on?

    Yes, @holeydonut is correct. The app will refresh every so often to reflect anticipated battery hours up or down based on current draw and app’s refresh rate. Here’s a screenshot after the A/C use got picked up: We adjusted our A/C temp upwards to I think 78-79F after seeing what was...

    Just had Powerwalls kick in - grid outage [06.21.2022]

    The cellular went out first for us and then down the road (around 9pm) we lost our access to our home wifi. Different carriers. Still able to dial out on our landline. Years ago when someone sabbotaged the underground cabling from south San Jose to Gilroy and we lost cellular and internet wifi...

    Just had Powerwalls kick in - grid outage [06.21.2022]

    Yeah we need to figure that out. Knew how to access it some time ago but since forgot. We really should print it out and have instructions near system because as was our case tonight at one point no cellular or wifi to search for it online when we wanted the info.

    Just had Powerwalls kick in - grid outage [06.21.2022]

    Well update. We are still in a section without power. Able to at least at this hour use cellular connection to access internet etc. and map still reporting 9pm tonight to be fixed - so not very reliable info. My husband received an automated call around 9 saying they were still working on it but...

    Just had Powerwalls kick in - grid outage [06.21.2022]

    BTW if you are checking the map, zoom in and click on your area of interest and it will pop up an estimation of when to expect restoration of power. Accidentally discovered this (and it matches what their auto phone messaging passed on to my husband earlier).

    PSA, big recall for Schneider Electric (includes Square D and QO load centers)

    We were originally scheduled for Eaton load centers but ended up with Square D. Appreciate the heads up. Definitely installed in the timeframe mentioned. Just checked our Engineering Diagrams and 2 Square D load centers (HOM), both with HOM breakers.

    Just had Powerwalls kick in - grid outage [06.21.2022]

    My husband is on way home and I noticed that apparently the cell tower lost power. Getting Call Failed when I try calling out but can reach him thru our landline. Our Landline is on call forwarding to my cell and I hear home phone ring but call drops and can’t reach my cell. Frustrating...

    Just had Powerwalls kick in - grid outage [06.21.2022]

    My husband got an automated call from PG&E letting him know they are working on it, estimated 9pm for our area. From PG&E outage map it affects south of San Jose and thru San Martin area in large and small blocks. There is also a large area by San Mateo/Redwood City closer to and on both sides...

    Just had Powerwalls kick in - grid outage [06.21.2022]

    It reached 104 today a few hours ago and just now heard a slight noise and thought bet the grid went down. Sure enough. I truly feel for anyone across the country right now with no AC. So glad we had our system installed two years ago. My girlfriend in San Jose was just texting that her...

    Add powerwall to existing system

    While we questioned ourselves about spending the additional funds to go from 2 to 3 PWs during our installation period, glad we did and I’m still wishing we would have done two double stacks at the time. We added the 3rd PW when Tesla actually had a sale on them (doubtful that will happen again...

    Understanding PGE/SVCE electricity bills/TrueUP

    BTW we received an annual Calif Climate Credit on our recent PG&E bill for both electricity and gas in the total amount of $174.26 and after applied we had a bill of under $9 to pay. On that bill it also showed the CPUC Mandated Electric Credit of $6.29 and stated check issued of $6.29. We...

    Understanding PGE/SVCE electricity bills/TrueUP

    Last year our true up with SVCE was less than the amt required to remit a check so it was rolled into this year’s true up and we just got our check, $347.93. Check dated 5/10. It was mailed in an envelope from Bill.com in Santa Clara and marked Payment Enclosed, so look for it if your expecting...

    Model 3 Not drivable

    Thanks for posting and following up with photos and status. Hope won’t have something like this happen to our cars but hearing insurance might cover was good to learn. Being out of warranty (assume for mileage) you got really lucky. Hope she’s back up and good as new soon. Now is not a good time...

    I didn’t bother to mention cost because obviously if you can’t afford a particular car you look to other cars you can afford.

    My 1 week review with the M3LR, compared to the BMW M135i

    Maybe done that way to essentially force you to set your own height setting? I know a few years back reading about someone who bashed their raised garage door when their trunk opened. Think it damaged the trunk as well.
