    Supercharger - West Lebanon NH

    A mix. For instance, see Brattleboro, VT. Started as 8 V2's, then expanded with 8 more V3's, but the original V2's were untouched.

    Service says $22k for new battery on 2012 Model S

    If it's a warranty replacement, they will likely max charge so your reported range is not greater than what you had pre-failure. That's what they did for me.

    Yes, those are empty fuseholders on the pole on the right edge of the picture. The fuse attaches to the bottom and is flipped up and snapped into the top. When they blow the remaining piece on the bottom hangs down, so it's easy to see from the ground. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuse_cutout

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    I use the LX: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H9S71LW/ Was $50 2 years ago, now $90. I don't know what the differences are between my LX and the MX+ (besides $50); the LX works fine with SMT

    Limited Time: 100 kWh Battery Upgrade (S/X), Ludicrous+ Capable, 2 Year Warranty

    I remember that video. I didn't know which car it was or the outcome. Bummer. Given 30 seconds with Google gave me the business owner's name on the second search, I hope the insurance/police had a conversation with him about hit and run/leaving the scene. EDIT - and 4 min with street view to...

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    They forgot to do this on my eMMC replacement, and didn't notice the app unlock didn't work for a week or two. I called the SC and they gave me the same "we aren't allowed to update remotely any more" line. I had to make a second trip to the SC, 2 hrs away. At least it was quick and they told...

    Supercharger Shock!

    Any public charging, whether L2 or DCFC, should be expensive, or at least more than it costs to charge at home. Otherwise the public charging stations get clogged up with people trying to save a buck, at the expense of people who really NEED it. Yes, that's not ideal for renters and others who...

    Service Center - Bedford NH

    Tesla wipers blades aren't anything special or unique, just overpriced. You should have plenty of options locally or mail order. On my S, I use a Bosch 28AOE in the driver's side, and an 18OE on the passenger side. Advance Auto Parts, Autozone, Amazon all carry them.

    Limited Time: 100 kWh Battery Upgrade (S/X), Ludicrous+ Capable, 2 Year Warranty

    I wasn't really ready to pull the trigger this time, but I'm still interested in the future. A couple of questions: Is there an easy way for me to figure out what inverter I have? Can the Gen 2 charge port be retrofitted to older cars? Can older cars support >150kW charging (with a pack...

    Vermont Tesla Owners

    The 12V is a custom size/design. You can only get the real thing from Tesla. Gruber Motors (in AZ) sells one that is a close fit, but the cost of battery + shipping across the country is almost as much as paying mobile service to do it for you (within $10-$20). I went through this exercise...

    Best plug type for EV charger?

    It's in @Vines's post above. Normally loads are only considered "continuous" if they last for >= 3 hrs. EV charging is an exception, NEC 625 says all EV charging, regardless of duration, must be considered continuous. NEC 705.60.B apparently places the same restriction on the inverter output...

    Best plug type for EV charger?

    I didn't see the inverter specs in your sig. Solaredge specs 47.5A max output on the 11400, so that's a bit funky w/ #6 romex. But I think solar follows the normal continuous loading rules, ie must be >= 3hrs to be "continuous". AFAIK, EV charging is the only load that MUST be classified as...

    Best plug type for EV charger?

    Nice. I keep meaning to print something like that. I'll also add that it's easy to use the adapter. Press and hold the trunk button on the fob to open the door/unlock the port to install. To remove, I just push the J plug's button/latch until the port unlocks, release it to physically lock...

    Best plug type for EV charger?

    Not really an issue. I've been charging my S for >5 years on a J1772 plug. I got an extra adapter that lives on the J-plug permanently. I leave another in the car for charging at work Romex/NM-B cable is limited to the 60deg C rating which, for #6 is 55A. There is no 55A breaker, so code...

    Understood; I don't know why they are different. Might be something in the minutes (although their minutes are very light). The 3/24 Development Review Board agenda says 857 Memorial Drive, parcel 501-055. The permit says 2000 Memorial Drive, parcel 502-001. Both parcel #'s and street...

    F-150 Ford Lightning

    I make no claim to know the nationwide market, but there are 2 dealers in OR and 7 in WA who have committed to no ADM. Depending on how much you are planning to spend, you could order from the dealer in PA selling for 3% under MSRP, ship it to the NW, and still come out under MSRP. Google...

    F-150 Ford Lightning

    There are dealers all over the country selling for MSRP. If people really wanted the answer, they can easily find it on the F150 forums (there's a pinned thread, it's not hard to find). People here mostly just want to whine about the big bad Ford dealers.

    F-150 Ford Lightning

    I said it before and I'll say it again. There are plenty of dealers who will sell for MSRP (one in Philly area for 3% UNDER MSRP). If you pay above MSRP, you're a sucker who didn't do their homework, plain and simple. Per my local dealer (who charges MSRP), it's a $10k option (available to...

    Or its just a random battery failure. They do happen, after all, unrelated to batterygate/chargegate.

    It was hidden - my normal periodic search of "site:stjvt.com Tesla" came up with nothing, as usual. Searching for "charging" found it. The notice doesn't mention Tesla by name, but does mention "supercharger cabinets", so I think it's a safe bet. Plus, Tesla is the only one with announced...

    No kidding. I was heading to West Lebanon after a weekend in northern NH in Jan 2020. Plan was to stop at Lincoln and get enough to get across the Whites and get to W Leb. As is, I needed an hour at an L2 in Littleton NH to have enough of a buffer to get to Lincoln. With St J, I could have...
