    Supercharger - Yucca Valley, CA (LIVE 24 Sep 2022, 16 V3 stalls)

    Was actually driving by a couple days ago and saw vehicles seemingly charging (trucks up, etc.). But it was not appearing on my nav so I kept rolling. Looks like we're live now! Yahoo!

    Supercharger - Yucca Valley, CA (LIVE 24 Sep 2022, 16 V3 stalls)

    A related question: With 365 days of insatiable sunshine every year, and a well-justified desire to have shade for the vehicles/drivers, wouldn't this be the poster child location for solar panels?

    Supercharger - Yucca Valley, CA (LIVE 24 Sep 2022, 16 V3 stalls)

    Looks like everything related to the Supercharger hardware/infrastructure is done. Save for a few "EV Charging" signs/pavement stencil, we're done here. Hopefully we bring this puppy online quick! There are tourist Teslas and even locals all over this market that could really use this.

    Supercharger - Yucca Valley, CA (LIVE 24 Sep 2022, 16 V3 stalls)

    Coming around the home stretch! This one came together VERY quickly. If SCE fully sets the transformer and the FINAL inspection goes as well as it should, this could be up and running before the end of the month.

    Supercharger - Yucca Valley, CA (LIVE 24 Sep 2022, 16 V3 stalls)

    Took a gander over at the construction site and they are moving along nicely. Especially seeing as it's been in the 100s the last several days. The crew is working hard and barring anything unusual, we should be up in running in the next couple months!

    Supercharger - Yucca Valley, CA (LIVE 24 Sep 2022, 16 V3 stalls)

    Was able to swing by on Friday. They were working their tails off over there. Deep, deep, holes and trenches. If inspections get scheduled and they keep moving, this could be done rather quickly. Hoping for the best! Apologies for the lousy pictures. I stayed in the car and just did a...

    Supercharger - Barstow, CA - Tanger Way (LIVE 26 May 2022, 20 V3 stalls)

    Wow! It feels like they were pushing dirt around 6-8 weeks ago and according to the pics above, we appear to be all but done! They even have decorative concreted/landscaping in place. By the end of June (Q2) is a 99.9% certainty, I'd say. Maybe even any day now by the looks of this progress...

    Supercharger - Yucca Valley, CA (LIVE 24 Sep 2022, 16 V3 stalls)

    Yes! I just spoke to a friend of mine who lives across the way and he definitely said that we're in construction mode over there. Maybe we move this status to the traffic cone? 🚧🏗️👷‍♂️👷‍♀️ I'll try and get some pics myself this week if I can!

    Supercharger - Barstow, CA - Tanger Way (LIVE 26 May 2022, 20 V3 stalls)

    Yep! Barring anything unusual, they can wrap this up in a couple months easily to hit the Q2 delivery goal. Once it's through the complete permitting process, surveys are completed, and Tesla has the subs committed, it can come together quick. LOL, we don't need permits someone surmised...

    Supercharger - Yucca Valley, CA (LIVE 24 Sep 2022, 16 V3 stalls)

    What a bummer that we've lost momentum on this. I feel like @PLUS EV can sometimes get a line on permit progress and/or where this is going? I really want this Supercharger!

    240 Volt NEMA 14-50 Charger No Longer Working

    My model S charger that I replaced this one with has now also failed. I guess these things just don't last very long. This could be catastrophic if you were depending on the travel charger and it just puked on you. . .

    Missing Superchargers from in-car nav map

    I had this change from the "old way" on my display about a week ago. It's been really terrible. I can't tell you how much I absolutely HATE not having the superchargers on the screen for me at all times. There has to be a way to "downgrade" back to where we were before the "upgrade."

    Tesla overcharge?

    This happens to me periodically. Came on here to see if there was anything to be alarmed at. Kinda makes no sense and is a little annoying. . . As per below, it overcharged the car pretty significantly. I use a bunch of different Level-2 chargers when I fill up at different places. Maybe...

    Supercharger - Yucca Valley, CA (LIVE 24 Sep 2022, 16 V3 stalls)

    Do we have any knowledge as to exactly where in this parking lot we think this thing will land? It can't come soon enough. This will allow an arrival empty to fill/lunch with a turn to arrive home empty (charge overnight). I really want this Supercharger! If it's anything like contracting...

    Refreshed Model S Snow Chain is available for 19" wheel

    Damn! I'm trying to find a simple easy to add/remove $75 chain that will fit my 2017 Model S (with the wimpy rims). Any guidance on that?

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

    Charged here last week. Arrived from San Diego almost empty (lunch at Subway). Got home easily with 15% or so to spare. Very pleased!

    Rivian Deliveries Pushed to 2022

    This is a bummer. I have a "regular" reservation (or whatever we want to call NOT "Launch Addition") and that maybe puts me a year from now until we actually take delivery. Does that sound right to everyone? Very disappointing indeed.

    Supercharger - Yucca Valley, CA (LIVE 24 Sep 2022, 16 V3 stalls)

    I'm out this direction often. In fact, our general contractor that we've done some work with made himself one of the first local Tesla owners (Model Y) in the area recently! Probably after seeing us make about 100 trips on our Model S coming and going between San Diego and this area over the...

    Supercharger - San Diego, CA - Del Mar Heights Road (CLOSED 16 Sep 2021, 18 urban stalls)

    One Paseo as a destination may have already passed its prime. Which is sad on a personal level as I live right across the street and really enjoyed the buzz and activity. There was a day when the 2nd deck of this place would get close to full and panicky people were crying that the garage...

    Supercharger - Baker, CA (40 V2 stalls)

    I'm completely baffled by this expansion. This was already not well located as far as amenities, or even geographically along this travel corridor. I have also never, ever, ever, ever either been at this Supercharger (5Xs there live) or when I check it on the nav (100s of times) seen this...

    Supercharger - Yucca Valley, CA (LIVE 24 Sep 2022, 16 V3 stalls)

    Moderator note: The first three posts in this thread were consolidated from multiple threads. I think it's safe to say that Yucca Valley will be bringing on a Supercharger in the coming months! It's about 30 mins from this existing one in 29 Palms which is kinda far for most of the action that...

    Wall Connector overcharging my MY

    I have seen/witnessed this wonky behavior on my Model S, However, the car is now ~5 years old and has ~125K miles, so maybe it's the age? The repeatable behavior is created by doing the following: Keep your car set to 90% SOC Supercharge at a a busy Supercharger (which defaults/overrides...

    Supercharger - San Diego, CA - Del Mar Heights Road (CLOSED 16 Sep 2021, 18 urban stalls)

    Still really hating that this Supercharger vaporized. If anyone really knows how/why this happened, it would be so intriguing.

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

    I'll be up there Mon-Thurs of next week. If it appears on the map by then, I'll come back and post some pics 📸

    Supercharger - San Diego, CA - Del Mar Heights Road (CLOSED 16 Sep 2021, 18 urban stalls)

    Guys seriously? I live down the street from this Supercharger. I have charged here and patronized this area 50+ times in the last year. I have checked out (if not dined) at every restaurant and checked out (if not shopped) at every retailer at One Paseo. With this now gone, I will likely never...

    Supercharger - Highland, CA (LIVE 4 Sep 2021, 8 V3 stalls)

    This Supercharger has gotten off to a bit of rocky start as I see it. It's always full and 1/2 of the pedestals haven't been working. It'll come together! This location is awesome, however. And it could easily handle another dozen pedestals from what I can see on demand (you can imagine that...

    Supercharger - San Diego, CA - Carmel Mountain Road (LIVE 10 May 2022, 24 V3 stalls)

    This is a big one too. Very cool. Including this new addition and the other in permitting just a mile north, that make makes 3 stations right in my backyard essentially over in this neck of the woods.
  28. JohnnyLounge21

    Supercharger - San Diego, CA - Carmel Valley (16 V3 stalls, permit filed)

    Fantastic. I've never had to wait at the One Paseo but it was inching up there. This should squash that for the foreseeable future. Model 3/Y peeps will love the super high speeds on it also.

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

    I'm actually doing 2 residential/vacation rental renovation projects in the Arrowbear/Running Springs area right now. I can tell you that finding a competent GC or any decent subcontractor is VERY difficult. Folks above alluded to that and I think they may be onto something. If Tesla needs...

    Supercharger - Temecula, CA - Temecula Parkway (LIVE 9 Jul 2021, 8 V3 stalls)

    The more the merrier! Looks like we have a fast food chicken joint, a taco shop, and a Starbucks all within 1/4 mile. . . It's a bit of a bummer that there's not much else without really hoofing it. For me, I'll take better food/time kill options nearby. . . If this takes pressure off N...

    New Roadster 4.0 Battery developement with Model S cells

    I'm very interested in this. Can't wait to hear more!

    Supercharger - Santa Ysabel, CA (LIVE 29 Mar 2021, 8 V3 stalls)

    This is a much better location than expected. Allowed for a trip from Joshua Tree to Julian non-stop (spent the day there). Then on the way back to SD a perfect stop here for a fill up while @ dinner. Farmhouse 78 was the spot, highly recommend!

    Supercharger - San Diego, CA - Truxtun Rd (LIVE 6 May 2022, 12 V3 stalls)

    Thanks for the update! This one has been in purgatory for almost a year, it feels. . .
  34. JohnnyLounge21

    Supercharger - Santa Ysabel, CA (LIVE 29 Mar 2021, 8 V3 stalls)

    Charged today there too! Was the only one there @ 10:30AM. It's a small 8-stall location but hyper-convenient for everything Julian/Borrego Springs related. I don't think it'll ever get very busy honestly. There's also fun road trip-ish things to do no further than you'd have to walk if you...

    Supercharger - Santa Ysabel, CA (LIVE 29 Mar 2021, 8 V3 stalls)

    Was thinking the same thing about the much larger spaces there. . .

    Supercharger - Santa Ysabel, CA (LIVE 29 Mar 2021, 8 V3 stalls)

    We've owned property in Julian since November of last year. As a result, we've driven through this area +/- 50 times over the last 12 months. I've never needed a charge, but don't get me wrong, this will be fun to have. "A lot of power outages" meaning more than zero annually? That would be...

    Supercharger - Beaumont, CA (LIVE 1 Jul 2020, 20 V3 stalls)

    Thank you so much for getting right back to me on the Tire Rotation idea with the tripometer change of name! I can't wait to give this a try. Meanwhile, I use this SC for trips between San Diego and Yucca Valley about 1-2 times a week. I must say that this is pretty much the ideal...

    Supercharger - Baker, CA (40 V2 stalls)

    I've been a squeaky wheel on the wasted resources of this 40-stall Supercharger for a couple years now. I've NEVER seen more than 5 cars here in the 10 or so times I've been through here (several, I was alone). But the nav always says it's half-full (fake news!). I can only wonder what...
  40. JohnnyLounge21

    Supercharger - Beaumont, CA (LIVE 1 Jul 2020, 20 V3 stalls)

    Sorry for the idiotic question! But I love the tire rotation countdown on this post. Is there a link you can send me to get this up on my display? I've never rotated tires (ever) and I'm burning my back to the stump and Costco is hating me for it! Thanks in advance!
  41. JohnnyLounge21

    Supercharger - Beaumont, CA (LIVE 1 Jul 2020, 20 V3 stalls)

    This is probably my favorite Supercharger to date. Been here 4-6 times over the last several weeks. We're between San Diego and Palm Springs/Joshua Tree often and this is really good. You can go to In-n-Out on the way up for lunch and then go to Grocery Outlet to get your food for the week...

    Supercharger - Los Angeles, CA - Alameda St. (LIVE 17 Sep 2020, 16 urban stalls)

    Supercharger capacity will never be enough. At least not until sales/deliveries slow down. The problem is that Tesla simply produces the best car possible. Coupled with the fact that way too many people don't have home or work charging so they depend on Superchargers more than ever could be...

    Supercharger - Lake Elsinore, CA (LIVE 28 Feb 2018, 20 stalls)

    Charged here on a Friday evening (Valentine's Day) and was the only one there from the start of the charge to the finish. I've charged here one time prior and maybe 1/4 of the stalls were in use at best. Seemingly half of the adjacent outlet mall had empty storefronts and the only remaining...

    Any early Roadsters with the original battery?

    Interesting points about the car not being plugged in and how much that can (potentially) hurt the battery. I used to feel that way intuitively but I've backed off that belief in recent years. I have definitely let the car sit for 3-5 weeks at a time without being plugged in since garage...
  46. JohnnyLounge21

    So we don't need to service our cars annually anymore?

    I find bits and pieces on this but nothing that really goes straight to it. So. . . We don't need to bring the car in to service it every year? I don't even know how to top off fluids, rotate the tires, or check the 12v battery. . . So I guess I do those activities as part of some other...

    Any early Roadsters with the original battery?

    2011 2.5 with 71K healthy miles. I've reupholstered the seats but she has never had any mechanical updates/changes done to her. She's def getting older now that I think about it! She's been garage queened (it that a word?) since getting my Model S exactly 3 years ago. She was a daily driver...

    Karaoke | Caraoke - I don't have it; what am I missing?

    Thanks so much for the comprehensive answer. This is a major bummer. . . Hate the word never - but I think you're completely right. . . I'll have to just not bring it up again!
