    Supercharger - Mojave, CA - Sierra Hwy (Wienerschnitzel, permit filed 12-21-2021. 12 V3 stalls)

    The nav for the original site lists the maximum charge capability, which would be correct at 250. There are 6 original V2 (150) cabinets as linked above, present for many years now, which they recently expanded by adding a combination of few temporary 250's and a couple of urban 72's. Strange...

    Supercharger - Mojave, CA - 16870 CA Hwy 14 (Mojave Thai, permit filed, 20 V3 stalls)

    I found that post just a little while ago too. I am not a twitter user, and not sure I want to start now, but his account may be worth the effort. Anyone know why he left TMC, and why he is so pleased about it? Was he not treated well here? He was such a valuable member.

    @corywright Tried to tag MarcoRP, but his profile comes up with nothing. What happened?

    Supercharger - Mojave, CA - 16870 CA Hwy 14 (Mojave Thai, permit filed, 20 V3 stalls)

    Not exactly the same lot, but right next door, like 100' away.

    Superchargers in Southern California (location speculation)

    This is another reason why it would be silly to use a SC if you have access at home. My TOU rate is $0.13/kW after 10pm. Back in the day, so many of use were disgruntled by locals clogging up SCs since they were free, actually leaving the cars there all day, prior to the initiating of idle...

    Superchargers in Southern California (location speculation)

    There is almost no reason to use a supercharger if home charging is available. I use them exclusively for traveling, and even then, try to plan my trips to minimize SC use, and plan for destination charging at whatever property I am staying at. My assumption is that most the the chargers that...

    Damn, that sucks. I hope you made it to another SC okay

    12V Access: Model S 2021 Refresh

    I am getting the impression that there are differences in builds. My OBD shuts my radar down instantly. I find that to actually be annoying. If I open the trunk or passenger door, the radar goes through its powering up cycle. As soon as I close the door, it shuts down. Then, I get into the...

    Hi Jamie, I sent you a PM, but thought I would post here in case helpful for others, or if someone else has a good solution. I got a tiny bit of rim rash the other day. This is not enough to seek repairs yet. Maybe if I get more elsewhere over time. I can do it all at once. Do you have a...

    California DMV - Plates & HOV Stickers

    That is what I thought. I wonder if installing rare-earth magnets under the body panel would make this work, though I think that is a bit of an extreme solution for this problem. These yellow stickers are just so fugly.

    MASTER THREAD: USB drives that work with Sentry and TeslaCam

    I think the sentry mode screen only shows when there is a potential threat, like standing too close. That will not activate if you have your key/phone on you.

    California DMV - Plates & HOV Stickers

    This interest me very much. Has anyone tried them on a Tesla?
  13. 4SUPER9

    California DMV - Plates & HOV Stickers

    Agreed. I used PPF for my prior MS, and after almost 3 years at lease return, the stickers were easily removed, but no way could be placed back on.

    Supercharger - Mammoth Lakes, CA - Community Recreation Center (approved by city Feb. '22, 12 V3 + 4 L2)

    Yes, they layout at this location is just weird. If I recall, the pairing of stalls is off too. Also, on bad snow days, it is even more difficult to position cars. God, I certainly hope for more "bad" snow days this next season.
  15. 4SUPER9

    Supercharger - Mammoth Lakes, CA - Community Recreation Center (approved by city Feb. '22, 12 V3 + 4 L2)

    Yes, there are plenty of places to eat nearby, but nothing super fast. By the time you walk to Rock 'n Bowl, and walk back, you will be done charging. That's without ordering anything. The same goes with most, if not all, of those other establishments. I guess if there one is getting a very...

    Supercharger - Los Angeles, CA - Promenade at Howard Hughes Center (permit found 20 Nov 2020)

    I drive past this location often, wondering if there has been any progress. I don’t even see a dot on supercharge.info

    Supercharger - Sherman Oaks, CA (under construction May 2022, 40 V3 stalls)

    Thread title still says "permit issued". Time for a title change Interesting configuration. Not sure I have seen that before.

    That pretty much confirms it! Time for a title change. @bmah

    Supercharger - West Los Angeles, CA (under construction May 2022, 16 V3 stalls)

    Stopped by today. Happy to report that construction of these superchargers not only started some time ago, but looks complete. However, these chargers are in a new building that is far from complete. I walked into the parking lot and grabbed some pics. A construction worker asked why I was...

    Supercharger - Bakersfield, CA - Copus Rd. (check navigation screen for status, 20 V3 stalls)

    Was this site previously confirmed as being shut down, meaning actually off? If so, that means it was physically turned back on. Interesting.

    An honest review of the yoke

    You probably did not hear many people complaining because there was no Internet back in 1965. We are not talking about some insignificant interior feature here, such as controls to open up the trunk, side-view mirrors, etc. There is one, and only one, button on the steering wheel that is not...

    An honest review of the yoke

    While some of your points seem valid (I find use of the yoke enjoyable) I am more interested in knowing how many of those other cars you drove with weird car horns are still in existence today, and whether any of those horns ever even made it into a revised model. Any of them? My guess is no...

    Supercharger - Calabasas, CA - Commons Way (LIVE 12 May 2022, 20 V3 stalls)

    I don't think anyone really knows. Calabasas was approved years ago, permits issued, and equipment moved on site. Then... nothing. After an extended time, the Tesla equipment was removed, and this site was considered dead. Once revived, things moved pretty quickly.

    Supercharger - Calabasas, CA - Commons Way (LIVE 12 May 2022, 20 V3 stalls)

    Looks green to me. Well, maybe a bit closer to aqua

    I am not a huge fan of the turn signal buttons, but their placement is logical

    Supercharger - Mojave, CA (EXPANDED Dec 2021, 6 V2 + 4 V3 + 2 urban stalls)

    If anyone is heading this way, please check both next door and behind the Weinerschnizel for any construction activity on Mojave #2 and #3 respectively.
  27. 4SUPER9

    Supercharger - Mojave, CA - Sierra Hwy (Wienerschnitzel, permit filed 12-21-2021. 12 V3 stalls)

    This site seems to be following almost exactly in line with Mojave #2. Looks like everything is complete as of 4/7/2022, except for the final issuance of the permit. For both of these sites, it is possible that construction has actually begun, as was the case with Mojave #1. The final permit...

    Supercharger - Mojave, CA - 16870 CA Hwy 14 (Mojave Thai, permit filed, 20 V3 stalls)

    According to Kern's website, it looks like everything is complete except for final issue of the permit. There is one Fire condition pending, but the details say "approved with recommendations". This is as of 4/7/22
  29. 4SUPER9

    Supercharger - Bakersfield, CA - Copus Rd. (check navigation screen for status, 20 V3 stalls)

    Perhaps she did the same thing I often do. I find the Nav does not always choose the best place for me to charge, so I decide for myself. Although, in those circumstances, I typically still check how busy a site is before I head to it.

    An honest review of the yoke

    We know it pushed some away, as they stated so here in this very thread. We do not know if this amounts to "many".

    An honest review of the yoke

    That is exactly what I said up thread. The yoke is very easy to get used to if you are driving slowly and cautiously. Driving hard and fast is extremely dangerous at the beginning. Several months in, I can say I am definitely getting far more comfortable with it. It will never be as secure as a...

    An honest review of the yoke

    After 4 months of use, I can say that while my initial use of the yoke was awkward, but acceptable, I am extremely comfortable with it now. So much so that when I drive my wife's 3, it feels weird. The gear shifter, OTOH, is completely stupid and dangerous. I will never come to like it. I...

    An honest review of the yoke

    That is not a valid correlation. Sales likely went up because it is a vastly superior car, either because of the yoke in addition to many other reasons, or in spite of.

    California DMV - Plates & HOV Stickers

    I have always just put the big one in the back, and the smaller one on the right rear fender. Both as low as possible. I will never put these monstrosities on the front. I don't think I have heard of anyone who was fined for not having the stickers in the correct place. Cops have far better...

    Supercharger - Lake Arrowhead, CA (LIVE 17 Nov 2021, 8 V3 stalls)

    What Model S are you driving? I tend to get pretty aggressive regen even at 90%, possibly higher. Although, less so at colder temps
  38. 4SUPER9

    Supercharger - Lake Arrowhead, CA (LIVE 17 Nov 2021, 8 V3 stalls)

    I would think 80%, probable even 90%, would allow for full regen. 100% would be a waste, for the reasons you mentioned

    Supercharger - Mammoth Lakes, CA - Community Recreation Center (approved by city Feb. '22, 12 V3 + 4 L2)

    The one thing you can always count on with Mammoth Lakes, is that they will not do anything right nor well. So sure, that is possible. Like I said, that lot is mostly unused on the busiest of days. Parking Teslas there would do more for their economy than this new location.
  40. 4SUPER9

    Supercharger - Mammoth Lakes, CA - Community Recreation Center (approved by city Feb. '22, 12 V3 + 4 L2)

    Agreed. Nothing to walk to or do while charging, especially given V3 stalls. By the time anyone walks to any of the nearby establishments, it will be time to walk back, and most of the places nearby are sit-down dining. Definitely no time for that Still, always a welcome addition. I would...

    After two months, my tires finally arrived yesterday. My wife has to borrow my car this weekend, so no way am I going to let her drive with these new shoes before I get to! Will get them mounted next week and post some pics.

    Weird musical chimes upon Park

    Quite a number of times now, but definitely not consistent, musical chimes will play immediately when I put my car into park. It almost sounds like a video game start-screen. Anyone else have this? It is definitely volume dependent, going up an down with whatever I am playing on the radio, but...

    Supercharger - Carson, CA (approved by city council 15 Mar 2022, 20 stalls)

    Nice location. Right in the (small) void between the southern LA and northern OC superchargers.

    Supercharger - Mojave, CA - 16870 CA Hwy 14 (Mojave Thai, permit filed, 20 V3 stalls)

    The Kern website shows ongoing activity for permitting. Last update was on 3/11/22. Marked as "corrections needed". No updates on Mojave #3 since early January.

    Why would Tesla care if you plugged into the OBD? When I bring my car in, I just unplug and leave it visibly dangling.

    12V Access: Model S 2021 Refresh

    Through another member in this forum, I tapped a wire in the frunk for unswitched access. If you remove the center panel, closest to the windshield, there is a harness there with about 3 or 4 wires. The purple wire gives always-on power. It is a 16 G wire, so use that size to tap. PLEASE DO...

    As long as you can go to AAA, go to AAA. I went to the DMV to transfer my plates from my 2016 MS to my 2018, and the lady there did everything in her power to make my day miserable. On purpose. She accused me of having the wrong forms. When I showed her the forms were correct, she became...
