    CCS Adapter for North America

    CCS Adapter for North America

    They should really be included with every new Tesla, like the J1772 adaptor. This is petty sh!t for cars of this price range. I’d say for most long distance travelers the CCS1 would be more valuable than the now oprional UMC. Optimally every Tesla would have both along with J plug and be able...

    CCS - buy now or wait?

    How reliable have the CCS stations been? I haven’t had any trouble yet with chargepoint, but lots of comments on TMC about problems with damaged handles or app/payment methods.

    Charger location in garage

    My garage is similar to OP except I only back in. I mounted my WC at position A and ran the charge cable to a pivoting overhead jib that swings to cover both stalls, and ziptied so the handle can never touch the ground.

    Supercharger kwhr cost should not be based on price of gas

    The price of gas does not always reflect the price of oil, today oil is <$90. The refined product being a consumer commodity, retail price is what people are willing to pay at that time and place. When electricity is dispensed as fuel the same thing seems likely.

    Should I get rid of my LR for a Plaid?

    The LR IS one of the fastest cars. Give it some time, enjoy it and if it’s still not enough you won’t get hurt selling it, maybe for a profit.

    blank "controls" screen the first time I toggle to it

    That has happened every day on my 21X for weeks, SC was ”unable to replicate”. They were also unable to replicate window regulator noise and loose trim for what it’s worth.

    Anyone know what kind of floor mat this is?

    I have those Toughpro mats from that link and very happy with them, but they aren’t what OP’s pic shows, and they are rubber not vinyl.

    TPMS sensors

    Have you priced TPMS at your tire center or wheel vendor? I have bought from both at fair enough prices, and no compatibility problems. My 12/20 build ‘21 MX uses same sensors as previous years.

    Should I get rid of my LR for a Plaid?

    My use is kind of similar for prerefresh MXP 5 seater, I do love the power and it’s in Ludicrous pretty much all the time. But if it had only been available with 6 seats, I would have bought the LR... it’s only 1 day/week I need to fold the seats down, but it’s why I need the X.

    Pacific Northwest Owners (Seattle, Portland, or towns/cities in the region)

    I used Keithly Electric in South Park for a sizeable 3 phase warehouse job and they did a superb job quickly and for a decent price. They also do residential but I haven’t dealt with them for that. No affiliation.

    Master Thread: Definitive 14-50 NEMA Outlet Guide

    Yes. If that’s what you have, the tinning prevents corrosion, you won’t have that problem. Bryant is an excellent 14-50R, I have one installed and one waiting to install, and multiple Bryant 6-50R’s, never a problem with any.

    CCS Adapter for North America

    Back to the CCS adapter, with Tesla clamping down on Harumio and so many US serving in Korea, this is a good opportunity for a military spouse or dependent there to start a new side hustle and probably do very well.

    CCS Adapter for North America

    Residential rates have not increased for PSE customers in WA, but have proposed ~20% increase over 3 years, with the largest step coming naturally coming first, if approved. We are still on almost 50% fossil fuel here so clearly investments are needed to get off the coal and gas. My guess, SC...

    Master Thread: Definitive 14-50 NEMA Outlet Guide

    Are you guys waiting on the 14-50 recepticles because it’s the only way to power your EVSE ? I went that route out on my pole for guests with EV or RV, in my shop I already had 6-50 for welding and charging. I’d say short of needing RV/dual use, a 6-50 is better suited for charging simply by...

    From y performance to x plaid for less bumpy ride

    Seattle streets are a disgrace, not really fair to judge a cars ride on grossly neglected pavement! My 21X rides like sh!t in the city, I can imagine MY being jarring there, but those streets barely qualify as pavement.

    My MX smells like something died in it

    I’ve never had to clean the coil in any of mine either, but having worked in refrigeration long ago, cleaning condenser and evap coils is standard maintenance. High head pressure was the usual indicator. I’ve never seen a diagram of the X’s airflow, I don’t know how a dirty condenser could...

    Master Thread: Definitive 14-50 NEMA Outlet Guide

    Are you charging at 32A? Have you tried charging at a lower amperage, maybe 25? At some rate the plug temp. will drop to a level your WC is happy with, it may be as little as a couple amps less.

    Model X with 4680 cells?

    Doesn’t the new 4680 MY have less range than the 2170 version? I’ve seen speculation that he 4680 is not offered in Perfomance Y because they don’t cool as well as 2170, again that is some youtube opinion. That kind of reinforces the idea that S/X still use 18650 for a reason. Most of the info...

    CCS - buy now or wait?

    On one of these CCS threads someone reported they could unplug it hot at a certain station, EVgo I think. If the CCS plug is in proper condition I don’t see how it could be unlatched hot and I have not been able to duplicate that. But even in that case, the adapter itself should still be latched...

    CCS - buy now or wait?

    You are right, it would be reasonable and appropriate. But why would they? (From Tesla perspective-) what’s in it for Tesla, a small fee? Weigh that against bad press if a salvage car burns up at a SC. There may not be many CCS1 enabled Tesla cars in salvage status now, but there will be...

    NM-B is such a PITA to work with I’m surprised it gets brought up so much. I personally find THHN or other suitable conductors in conduit faster, easier, and cleaner to install.

    Is Tesla Adding CCS Chargers a Mistake? (TMC Podcast Clip)

    I don’t buy that. There must be a load of Tesla owners that are satisfied with the charging system of the cars they selected and the supercharger network. Newer CCS-enabled Teslas have even more charging options with the adaptor. How many happy owners would agree their lives were made better...

    CCS - buy now or wait?

    There is a lot more to the CCS1 adapter than the J1772 adaptor- it handles -10X the current. Typically that costs significantly more in any product, I don’t think Tesla’s price is out of line in this one instance.

    Liquid Tight Conduit with 4awg for wall charger

    You don’t need a torque screw driver. Tighten the lugs firmly, and let the wire end relax for minute, then turn again and you might get another1/4 turn. Done.

    Liquid Tight Conduit with 4awg for wall charger

    I also used 1” conduit and if I remember correctly the Tesla WC is threaded for 3/4 so I did some minor mod on it, I think I had to grind out the WC threads and use a nut inside to secure the conduit.
