    Difficult situation with a Condo, advice appreciated...

    Not sure about the grey cylinders, they look like vents for something like sewer / stormwater or something. My guess on the room, water meters and shut offs. It could be electrical though, and it could even be BOTH!! If you don't know where your water shut off is you should find that as part...

    I was wondering the same thing earlier, but these guys were planning to pull permits, which honestly surprised me! So many guys around me won't bother for residential work.

    Difficult situation with a Condo, advice appreciated...

    My 200 Amp panel has 765 amps worth of breakers in it. Adding up the breakers in a panel has no relevance to the load on the panel, and the amperage rating of the panel isn't relevant to the size of the service except that the panel should be rated equal or higher than the service or circuit...

    Looking for nice way to stop charging

    https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/adjusting-charging-amps-remotely.105814/page-5#post-5261050 I like OpenEVSE for this instead of Tesla unit. It is designed to dynamically change charge rate more easily than the Tesla units. Attached is a long running thread on the same topic but...

    Nearly brand new 90 kWh Non-Ludicrous battery pack, v3 - LIMITED TIME

    $14K is still quite a bit considering the cells cost them about $8500 on a 85KWH car. Not that I don't expect them to make a profit. That said $16K isn't terrible for a brand new pack installed.

    Difficult situation with a Condo, advice appreciated...

    OK good, at least there is some amount of oversight to keep things from getting really silly. I won't say the inspectors know everything, but at least they will have to sign off on the design pushing liability back to the insurance company. Scan those approvals and receipts and put them in...

    Breakers have a max of 75C, so in theory they could round up to 90.

    Difficult situation with a Condo, advice appreciated...

    You should ask every electrician if they intend to pull a permit. If you find any that plan to, I will be surprised. They can do anything they want if the city doesn't inspect it, and all the liability then falls on you for their decisions. If you have a fire, and the insurance company finds...

    Difficult situation with a Condo, advice appreciated...

    Correct, there are exceptions and allowances, but I wouldn't go there. The assumption is that these are typically very short runs, maximum of a few feet per other parts of the code.

    Difficult situation with a Condo, advice appreciated...

    Also looking at your panel, I think the bonding screw is installed, which it shouldn't be in your configuration. You wouldn't believe how often this happens. It can cause issues if a neutral comes loose someplace and the earth ground ends up carrying the load. This isn't good because earth...

    Difficult situation with a Condo, advice appreciated...

    If the run is REALLY 400 feet, this is a terrible idea. 3AWG THHN jacket in conduit is rated for 100 while connected to an actual breaker. (Breakers have a limit of 75C) https://lugsdirect.com/WireCurrentAmpacitiesNEC-Table-301-16.htm 85A is the absolute highest you can go on 4AWG and that...

    Difficult situation with a Condo, advice appreciated...

    400 feet is considered a long run, so the conductor should be sized up some to reduce the voltage drop going that distance, so it should be heavier than 4awg. If it's just 4AWG, oh boy! 5% drop in voltage at 70A over 400 feet would require 3AWG. Limiting it to only 3% would require 1/0AWG...

    Difficult situation with a Condo, advice appreciated...

    Just because the washer and drier each have a 20A circuit doesn't mean they draw more energy. The drier is gas, so it isn't going to cause any issues.

    Difficult situation with a Condo, advice appreciated...

    Supercharging probably isn't free for the OP, and for the long term installing a station at home is going to pay for itself. Also tax credits and all that help that along a bit. I will also say I hate going to the gas station

    Difficult situation with a Condo, advice appreciated...

    Average Daily usage isn't the best metric, but if we divide that by 24 we get less than 1KW except in the summer where you ever so slightly exceed 1KW. Let's do some math. The lowest period is probably no AC at all, so that is your base, fridge, computer laundry etc. YOU didn't go on an a...

    Check your electric company website and see if your account shows daily/hourly usage. If so, then you have the data at your fingertips. If your all LED lighting your peak likely to be half the calculated, which would allow you to go to a 30A circuit.

    Actually the clothes washer and clothes drier share a 20A 120V circuit.

    Difficult situation with a Condo, advice appreciated...

    Based on the load calculation I would suggest you could have 16A charging on a 70A main. Your best bet is to check if you have a smart meter, and then get the historical data from the utility. Smart meters don't have spinning dials, but do have digital displays, and are VERY common. Once you...

    Difficult situation with a Condo, advice appreciated...

    I agree with a 20A 240 volt circuit is certainly safe, but for tax and reliability reasons I suggest hard wiring it to a fixed Tesla or J1772 based station. I mention J1772 station because you may not always own a Tesla, and it is nice not to be locked into a brand based on previous investment...

    Nearly brand new 90 kWh Non-Ludicrous battery pack, v3 - LIMITED TIME

    "and only refurbished packs will be available for warranty work." That seems to be the case already for 85's from the people I know that have had a pack replaced in the last year. While it is unfortunate that they will effectively write off the classic S as the packs degrade out of service it...

    Nearly brand new 90 kWh Non-Ludicrous battery pack, v3 - LIMITED TIME

    Long term I would speculate that Tesla will offer a program for the older S's. They aren't right now because their battery production is capacity constrained, however if that ever changes, then I would imagine they will aggressively market that upgrade. They did a program for the Tesla...

    I understand your point of view on the P85 to P100 conversion. I was hoping that someday I could have a P100+, but alas, just have to get a P100D+ instead. I will also comment that the Supercharging speed increase of going from a current 85 pack to a 100 pack can be noteworthy for long...

    Why are these used Teslas as much as new ones?

    Demand is sky high for all cars right now, some is driven by all the cash the government is sending people. Tax refund time drives higher demand for cars anyway, and then we piled even more cash on. There are also chip shortages affecting various models across many brands reducing the supply...

    Why are these used Teslas as much as new ones?

    Old S's were in the low to mid 20's, you might get one for less than 30k now. The buying season started early this year due to tax returns + relief money all dropping at the same time. Also new car production issues due to chip shortages. If you haven't bought what you want already this year...

    Model X P100D with Ludicrous FSD and Free Unlimited Supercharging - Late December 2016 build

    And in the other thread you just posted in today the seller did what you did, called Tesla, confirmed it would transfer, sold the car, and it didn't transfer. It is well established that Tesla phone reps have no idea if it is really going to transfer or not, and it is harmful that they continue...

    Couldn't agree more. I ranted about this on a recent thread in here. I like Tesla, and I like what they have made happen, but there is a degree of chaos that you don't get with the older companies. This chaos doesn't help Tesla grow, and gets them sued more often than they should be. I have...

    Correct. It was based on order date, not build or delivery date. As is the case now, you could order a car and defer delivery to some point into the future and often retain the features and perks you locked in at time of order. At one point they even offered to let you roll your free super...

    Selling 2016 Black Model S 75D

    Just in case you aren't aware, that only works if the car was sold through the CPO program at some point. As a further caveat if it has been back through Tesla's control since then it could still be stripped (not saying this is the case here). Always good to know if this owner bought it from...

    My understanding, I am probably wrong, is that if the dealer took it in on trade from an owner of the SC01 car, then it might retain it for the buyer. IF the dealer bought it at auction then the odds get worse, and if they bought it from Tesla or from Tesla via an auction then pretty much no...

    Based on that you have an unusually good battery. Most 85 packs show around 244 or so. Is your MCU set to "rated" or "ideal" The above trick is based on "rated".

    What does the phone app show now for 100% charge in miles when you drag the slider to 100% now that the software is up to date? The newer software derates the battery somewhat, so your 252 miles may be out of date with current software.

    You have a somewhat unusual car, a P85+ with AP1. Not THAT unusual, but there might be someone who is willing to pay a premium for a lower mile clean example of that combination. But the reality is most of us will probably value it in the upper 30's, and there is no shortage of decent...
