    Tesla Roof Rack with Thule Pulse 615?

    Anyone have any experiences?

    Tesla Roof Rack with Thule Pulse 615?

    I'm thinking about getting the Tesla roof rack and using it with a Thule Pulse 615 on a Model Y. Does anyone know if the Thule Pulse 615 would work with the Tesla Roof rack. Also, in general, I'm a little hesitant to install a Tesla roof rack, worrying that a carrier might put stress on the...

    Front license plate holder

    That's great to hear. Thanks again for your reply.

    Front license plate holder

    That's good to hear. Any worries that it might come off or be stolen? Did you also consider the Quick Bandit? Just wondering how the two compare. Also, does anyone know the official law in Maryland regarding a front plate? I'm going to contact the MVA and local police to inquire...

    Front license plate holder

    Any recommendations for a front license plate holder? I see a wide range of options (and prices). Looking for one that doesn't involve drilling. The Quick Bandit seems to be nice, but pricey. I live in Maryland. It seems to be a bit unclear if a front license plate is required (or just needs to...

    Green light on Wall Connector...can I turn it off?

    I believe the charger is waterproof. Is there a way to turn the light off?

    Green light on Wall Connector...can I turn it off?

    Is it normal for the green light to always be on a steady green when not in use? I don't necessarily want to advertise that I have a Tesla charger on the side of my house. There must be a way to turn the indicator light off?

    Initial Wall Connector questions...

    The Wall Connector is now displaying a solid green light and I'm attaching some screenshots of my setup pages. Thanks in advance for any assistance...

    Initial Wall Connector questions...

    I just had my Wall Connector installed. It's on a 50amp circuit. I charged our Model Y to 80% to test it and it seemed to do fine. Later in the evening I went through the setup to get it connected to wifi. Things went pretty well, but when I checked for a firmware update I seemed to lose...

    Wall connector install

    I see. Thanks. Would about 48" off the ground give us enough space to wrap the cable around easily without it hitting the ground?
  11. S

    Wall connector install

    Thanks. About how high up from the ground would you recommend for an outdoor install? I'm reading that a good height is about 48" from the ground. Would that be from the ground to the bottom or top of the Wall Connector?
  12. S

    Wall connector install

    Right. That's a good point. I will make sure to do that. I'm going to have the Wall Connector installed on Tuesday. It appears from the instructions that there is an option to have the electrical cable come from the top or bottom and into the charger?
  13. S

    Wall connector install

    In a few days I’ll install wall connector outside on the side of our home. I’m also planning to have some driveway work done (paving and removal of a planter/flower box along the side of the house) in a few weeks. I was a little worried that the charger might interfere with the work, but all...

    Can headlights go "on" permanently?

    Because they would provide better visibility.
  15. S

    Can headlights go "on" permanently?

    I see. So, perhaps possible that this might change with a software update? I feel that this is a setting that we, as the driver, should be able to control. I think it's safer to drive with the headlights on all the time. While it's of course still possible to turn them on, I would rather not...

    Cargo cover not as good as expected

    I feel like many of you do. I received the Freemont build at the end of December. At first I liked the cover, but over the past two weeks, I find that it does get in the way and is even difficult to remove. I feel bad, because it just seems to be a waste of a lot of material. This should have...

    Can headlights go "on" permanently?

    I always like to have my headlights on regardless of the weather. It seems that on my Tesla Model Y they will always initially be in "Auto" mode. Can I change this setting to "On" and be guaranteed that my headlights will always be on?

    Range inquiry [miles traveled vs. miles left]

    Thanks everyone for your replies. How do I know if I have a 120V/15A or 120V/20A outlet? The plug that comes with the most recent mobile charger is a 5-15? It is ok to use a 5-15 receptacle with a 120V/20A outlet or the other way around?

    Range inquiry [miles traveled vs. miles left]

    Thanks. Supercharging only for a while is ok?
  20. S

    Range inquiry [miles traveled vs. miles left]

    Thanks for confirming. I’m just worried bout doing all supercharging to start off. What do you think about mobile connector slow charging? It might be a while until we get an electrician to install the wall connector
  21. S

    Range inquiry [miles traveled vs. miles left]

    This probably is a beginner question, but I've been supercharging because we don't have our wall connector installed yet (waiting for electrician appt.). I feel bad supercharging to about 80% solely so far. Should I try to use the mobile connector when I can until we get the wall connector...

    Range inquiry [miles traveled vs. miles left]

    Not complaining, but noticed the battery lost about 2% overnight. Could there be some setting(s) I should check?
  23. S

    Range inquiry [miles traveled vs. miles left]

    Thank you very much. I wasn't expecting a 1:1, but thought the loss was a little high. I will change to percentage.
  24. S

    Range inquiry [miles traveled vs. miles left]

    We've had our Tesla Model Y long range for about two weeks. We love it but are a bit disappointed with range, more specifically, miles traveled vs. miles left. For example, Thursday night we charged to 222mi. We traveled 91 miles, however we lost 140 miles (at 82miles now). I understand that...

    What do you put in the cargo compartments?

    Sounds nice. How do you like the LDCRS liner? Is it difficult to get to the shallow compartment? I was thinking of getting the Tesmanian cargo liner, but will consider this one now as well.
  26. S

    What do you put in the cargo compartments?

    Are you referring to the shallower (harder to access) area for the mobile charger, snow brush, etc? Do you have a cargo liner?
  27. S

    What do you put in the cargo compartments?

    Just curious how everyone uses the two cargo spaces in the Model Y? Seems that the shallower one (closer to the rear seats) is a little difficult to gain access to, especially if you have a cargo liner installed. What does everyone like to put in this space? If it's tough to get to, I was...

    Best way to charge to prevent battery degradation?

    We've just had our model Y for about a week and a half. I'd like to get into some good battery charging habits. Unfortunately, because I have had our Tesla Wall Connector installed yet, I had to supercharge twice for just about 50 miles or so each time. My mobile connector just arrived last...

    Car Cover?

    My Tesla will be kept outdoors and I live in Maryland so we can get snow and ice in the winter and the summers are hot. I've never used a car cover for my other cars, but am considering it for my Model Y. I wouldn't use it every evening, but whenever there might be a forecast of heavy snow...

    Cargo area on 2023 Model Y?

    Thanks for your reply. I purchased front and rear floor mats from Maxpider, so I would just be looking to get the cargo liner. Do you know if I could just get that piece and possibly rear seat back covers too? Also, just wondering, how do you open the cargo compartment that's further from the...

    Cargo area on 2023 Model Y?

    I'm looking for some decent mats to cover the cargo area and rear of seats in a 2023 Model Y. Are there any options out there that have three pieces for the seat rear and two pieces for the cargo top cover? I haven't spent much time playing around with it, but at first glance, it seems that...

    What do you think of this rear seat cover for the Model Y (2023)?

    I haven't purchased anything yet. I do like those towels better! Thanks for the link. They're cheaper for sure! But how do they hook on? I'm using a sheet now and the issue is it slips around...

    What do you think of this rear seat cover for the Model Y (2023)?

    What do you think of this seat cover for the back seat of the model Y? I just need something that can easily be put on and taken off. I would just use it when we have our dog in the back seat so she doesn't scratch the seats...

    2023 Model Y rear seat covers

    I'm looking to get rear seat covers for our 2023 Model Y. This cover would primarily be used for when we bring our dog along for a ride. The Tesla hammock style one wouldn't work, because we'd like to have people sitting back there as well together with our dog. I do also realize that the rear...

    MYLR arrived :)

    After much deliberation, I purchased the model Y LR today and it's home :) Last night I ordered these Maxpider floor mats (after reading through some reviews)... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0936RH9SH/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I'm a bit worried about getting the...

    A few last minute questions

    I think then that you have a lack of knowledge that I already said that I realize this is not a car that would cover a 225-mile trip on a single charge in my last post in reply to. Anyway, thank you 👍
  38. S

    A few last minute questions

    I don't think they do and I think "ignorance" is a hostile word. Anyway, I basically didn't expect 180 miles of range in the cold, but that's ok. Beyond that, I'm not sure what is ignorant about the questions. I think not knowing exactly what features one will be getting is ignorant. One would...

    A few last minute questions

    Thanks everyone for your replies. I didn't mean to make it sound like I haven't researched this. I have been thinking about the Model Y seriously for a year and Tesla overall for a while. I'm basically just having last minute jitters and asking all of these questions for my peace of mind :) I...

    A few last minute questions

    how many miles should I expect it to get in cold weather conditions (20s F)? My commute isn’t that long, but was hoping it could make it from DC to NJ (about a 225 mile trip).
  41. S

    A few last minute questions

    Thanks for your replies and sorry I wasn’t too clear. I would need at least 275 miles on a single charge not per week. With the recent extreme cold. I’m concerned about range and being able to charge the car. With temps in the 10s and 20s, would range drop significantly? I live in Maryland...
  42. S

    A few last minute questions

    If I go ahead with the model y, I will purchase in December 31st. A few questions I have now are: A VIN number has been assigned and the sales rep told me that it’s a 2023 model. However, I thought that Tesla doesn’t necessarily have year models because they are continually updating their...

    attractiveness of Tesla

    I’ve been considering a Tesla model Y for a couple of years now. One thing holding me back is that I worry about parking it or just driving it around. I think it’s getting better because there are more Teslas around now than even a year ago. But I still worry. I noticed on an overnight test...

    How does the EV tax credit work for the model Y?

    I did not know this. This would be the best option then.
  45. S

    How does the EV tax credit work for the model Y?

    Right. After reading some more articles, it does appear that is the case. Rather than messing with tax configurations, perhaps it’s better to take the $3750 Tesla rebate?
  46. S

    How does the EV tax credit work for the model Y?

    Thanks. Yes, I actually read this article. I can’t imagine that everyone would normally owe over $7500 on their taxes. That’s quite a lot. I would think that the IRS would give you $7500 on top of whatever you owe or whatever tax refund you might already be receiving.

    How does the EV tax credit work for the model Y?

    Thanks for your reply. Right, so if the purchase is done in 2023, I would take the credit on my 2023 tax year in April of 2024? My main two questions would be, even if there is no limit right now on the number of cars, it seems that it would be best to purchase sooner than later in 2023? How...
  48. S

    How does the EV tax credit work for the model Y?

    I was notified by Tesla that my Model Y order (from February) was arriving. I opted to put the order on hold so I can (hopefully) get the tax credit starting on January 1, 2023. I also declined the $3750 rebate offer. I would like to make sure that I will get the tax credit and was wondering...

    A good time to purchase a Wall Connector?

    Thanks. So you're saying that probably a $400 Tesla charger would provide the same quality of charge as the $650ish non-Tesla one? The main benefits being enhanced charging stats?
