    With 2 Powerwalls and plenty of solar, why am I using slight amt of grid power?

    Missing data points to answer your main question. 1. How do you have the Powerwall configure? Backup or consumption? 2. What is your peak demand kW?

    Powerwall 2 backup option not working

    I can only think of two scenarios this would happen: 1. They installed a Gateway instead of a backup gateway which Tesla should be able to confirm which one is installed 2. The backup gateway is bad and needs to be replace Your install should also know which one is installed too.

    Red Founders Series Powerwall 2 - For Sale

    I would love to buy it but there is no guarantee when it will ship since they are reducing power wall shipments to all vendors. Just for reference both of my local vendors for the power walls had there shipment significantly reduced. One of them from 38 order to only getting 5.

    Those with multiple Powerwalls

    Well I do. Hopefully they can charger more then 1.7 kW. My solar generates 13 - 15 kW an hour. I only consume around 6 - 7 kWr unless I am charging the car. Yes I use a lot of power.

    Minor rear bumper damage

    I would get a quote from a non-Tesla body shop then have them do it. My wife damage mines and I went to a body shop that work on my other electric cars. No issues. Also I check on replacing the bumper and repainting it. It was around 600 plus 400 for the bumper from Tesla.

    External Amplifier adapter for Tesla

    Yup, I left the fronts alone because of the additional mids and highs speakers but the rears I sum those with the front speakers. The shop tap into the fronts at the AMP and the rears at the AMP behind the LCD screen. You can get to the wires below the LCD without removing it. I did not...

    External Amplifier adapter for Tesla

    The rear at least when the shop and I testing them was missing some of the low frequency. But they are at the front but the front only has the low frequency. I can connect to the DSP and unsum the rears then check again.

    External Amplifier adapter for Tesla

    Been off TMC for awhile... but if you have UHFS there isn't a clean full output. You will have to sum channels to get full range output. I have two AMPs and DSP installled with some channels sum together.

    HPWC instructions different than NEC rules?

    Ok I think I understand your confusion. Yes you are correct you have to dial it back to match what the charger in the car is capable of handling. It doesn't handle 60amps (75AMP breaker) but 64 AMPS (80amps Breaker). The charger in the car can only handle output: 80A, 72A, 64A, 56A, 48A...

    Model S P100D becomes world's fastest car from Dec update !

    I read you words carefully maybe you didn't read what you replied too. He stated that the contactor melted. It didn't melt because it got warm. It overheated. And Tesla do overheated, that's why it limits power when it overheated to let it cool down before some of the components fail. In...

    Model S P100D becomes world's fastest car from Dec update !

    I have never driven a factory sports car that has shutdown because it overheated. So I don't know which ICE cars you are talking about. Doing what you described would only cause you to run out of gas in a very short timeframe. Stop trying to make like everything that happens on a Tesla also...

    Safe/Gun Vault anchor points in rear trunk

    Not sure which states you are referring too however having it the trunk would be legal in all states specially if you separate ammunition from the firearms. There are only a hand full of states were you have to do this to meet the legal requirements. Again the assumption is you do not have...

    Actually this is not true. These a lies that had been told over and over again from house Insurance to car insurance. Any reputable insurance company will pay out up to your liability limits. If this was not the case you would not see people add lift kits to their trucks, aftermarket AMPs...

    3 weeks 3 service visits

    It is not normal for most cars to be in the shop. All of my previous cars include my current focus electric, hasn't had as many issues as some of the S. My Focus Electric is currently in the shop now for tires but hasn't seen a shop in 3 years. Both of my Mercedes only went to the shop for...

    Model S Steering Wheel Sensors

    I really would like Tesla to explain how it works, because I drove with my BOTH hands on the steering wheel and still get the NAGS. It almost shut off on me twice. The only thing that seems to work is I have to rock the steering wheel back and forth a little. But this seems more dangerous to...

    Suspension Problem on Model S

    Never because they do not offer that service but if they did I'm sure that would check the entire car as they always do at least here.

    Suspension Problem on Model S

    Hmm.. I don't understand your comment. When I take my MB in for any type of service they check the entire car. One time I took it in for them to put air in my tire and they fix a oil seal.

    Windshield Back Order

    I understand your pain, however it is not Tesla that has to give you a loaner it is your insurance. If this was a warranty claim I would understand, but it is not. The only fault Tesla has in this, is not allowing other vendors to make aftermarket parts. Allow might not be the right word but...

    Why do people here believe anyone including the OP has to prove anything to them? He does not owe us anything. Please stop badgering the guy. Let see what happens when all this is wrap up. Last note, Tesla does a lot of great things but they still do a lot of stupid things too.
