    Tire Pressure Monitoring System Fault

    TPMS error cleared for me after applying the 2021.44.30.6 update (though could be coincidental)

    Tire Pressure Monitoring System Fault

    Same issue for me after MCU2 upgrade, snow tire/wheel swap with aftermarket TPMS that worked fine for the last 5 winters on my MCU1. I’ve tried 2-button reset, reset Wheel Configuration, reset TPMS from Servuce screen, sleep overnight. Has OP tried a System Reset or applied the 2021.44.30.6...

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

    Jason would it be better to do a battery upgrade with you first (prior to MCU upgrade) and then let the SC accommodate the bigger battery config when they do the MCU2 upgrade? Or do you guess the SC would balk if they find a non-factory battery config, during MCU2 upgrade, in my hypothetical?

    Tesla Model X OEM Tow Trailer Hitch Receiver Carry Case & Keys - Brand New! $350

    Hi, Did you install an aftermarket hitch for towing? I’m in SLC and interested, but would want your entire hitch-bar assembly also (mine is splayed out from towing a camper, so a new receiver kit won’t fix my issue). thanks, Jason

    Ohmman's Airstream Adventures

    I would love to pull the AC off my roof but not easy to find a good mini-split for our trailers. I've been wondering what underbelly unit Safari Condo is offering on their A2124 but they've been covid-closed. Looked at several compact marine units but they require sea water to cool the heat...

    12v battery is now charging 24 hours / day

    I just noticed my 2016 75D MCU1 contacters are opening/closing every minute or two. It’s running 2020.48.37.1. Anyone know if this is new (intentional) behavior, or something wrong (stuck in a software loop)?

    Ohmman's Airstream Adventures

    Never had anything but friendly (and sometimes curious questions) experiences at RV parks, all over the mid-Atlantic, south, plains states, and Rocky Mountain west. Only charged a handful of emergency times without a camper attached, and 30+ visits with our camper. But I’ve mostly traveled...

    FS: IRO Model S AP 2.0 Dashcam

    Can you elaborate camera specs, storage specs, etc, or maybe a link to the mfr site? Does it only work with Model S AP2 (says on the box), or would it work with my AP1 Oct 2016 75D? Does the mfr say anything about the power connector being different inside the rearview mirror housing? My car...

    Ohmman's Airstream Adventures

    After consult with @ohmann and others on this thread and scouring these forums, we bought an Oliver Elite I in Jan 2019, towed it from TN to the Rockies for a 3-month ski trip, and since then multiple desert adventures around the CO/WY/MT Rockies and UT canyonlands. I'm happy to chat with you...

    Difference in 2016 100D Lud Perf and P90DL except obvious 90 vs 100

    One key difference To be aware: is the battery capacity difference is not simply 10 (assume you meant kWh). First, @wk057 on this forum had determined actual “new” capacities to be 4-5% higher than 100kWh for the 100D, and IIRC the 90D actual capacity was 5% below 90kWh. The monikers were...

    Model S in the snow/cold

    Yeah the MS/MX are excellent snow cars, the one weakness (aside from low clearance) being how aggressively the stability control nannies shut down power in a slide. The ballet would be much more interesting if the driver could maintain throttle inputs throughout...I've been drooling over the P3D...

    Model S in the snow/cold

    ;) Thats what I get for blabbidy-blabbing, shoulda just said "buy snow tires you won't regret it." Ok fine here ya go, this was Day 1 of the epic Erie Christmas storm of 2017: Didn't get vids of towing through the snow, with a Tesla trailer sleigh...here's a pic:

    Model S in the snow/cold

    Don't do chains, socks, or studs, and you're taking a big risk driving the OEM M+S (or worse, the 21" OEMs) up to Brian Head in Feb. The road up to BH is on UDOTs list of Chain/Snowtire Controlled Roads from October-April, and Feb is usually a pretty solid snowfall month: Utah Department of...

    12V Battery Requires service

    @jlucero regarding the your warranty expiration, FYI you can still buy the extended service agreement for your car if you want continued coverage on your car (not that you'd want it for a simple 12V battery, but if you're going to buy the ESA anyway you might as well have the 12V be covered)...

    Winter issues, frozen windows, door locks, seals, etc.

    Multi-camera / Quad-camera solution for Model S / X

    Hi Bearbu, have you given more thought to making a decoder board for the side repeaters? I have an AP1 MS refresh, replacing the side markers with side repeater cameras from a salvage car. I want my car to appear as if it has Sentry Mode to the casual observer...maybe they won’t key my car again...

    Tesla Dashcam Failed When Needed Most - During an Accident

    IIRC, @wk057 and others have pulled accident footage from salvaged cars. Seems a coincidence that each of you had a scenario with impact for which Dashcam didn’t write to your card for the block of time the incident actually occurred, but successfully recorded for “non-emergency” blocks of time...

    Is Tesla making their resale value obsolete?

    We have a 2016 MS75D and an MX100D, have driven all over the eastern seaboard in summer and winter, across the country twice. Last year I towed a 19’ camper across the country for a ski trip to all the big Rockies resorts with the X. Despite your 7k average usage, I would still recommend Buy vs...

    Camping Trailer Selection for Model X

    No worries, I'll use your guess at my own risk. But I really appreciate you offering the gut estimate since you've towed so far in varied (and mountainous) terrain. Was there ever a time in your trip for which a 20-30kWh battery bank would've been a useful emergency reserve (E.g. your narrow...

    Makes sense, understand your trepidation there... Do you feel TeslaFi is still best method, gives you best data? Btw, I subscribed to EVTO, thanks for building such a useful tool.

    Camping Trailer Selection for Model X

    Thanks for quick response @ohmman! So you're guessing ~620-650Wh/mi in sub-freezing, ceteris paribus? Seems to line up with EVTO in the some routes (660Wh/mi) thru the Rockies, but EVTO projects 715Wh/mi @56mph across the Plains states in January. Settings MX HP, PF 15, Speed -10. Regarding...

You also mentioned Escape in your post, and I'm considering an Escape 17B for long winter road trip in our MX100D. Any...

    Any idea if this would work with 19" MS Slipstreams, specifically?
