    Supercharger - Roseville, CA - Harding Way (under construction Sep 2023)

    To get back to the topic of this Supercharger site under construction (hint hint) here are a few more pictures of the site... Bruce.

    Supercharger - Dixon, CA (under construction May 2023, 12 V3 stalls)

    Compared to the last set of pictures from post #4 of this thread…third charger cabinet has been placed, as well as the switch gear. Transformer pad is to the east of the charging stalls but no transformer. Protective bags over charging posts are different. I’ve been having some problems...

    Supercharger - Walnut Creek, CA - Palos Verdes Mall (under construction Sep 2023, 12 stalls)

    Teensy bit of progress… There’s a prefab transformer pad here now but it’s up on blocks on the other side of the charger cabinets and needs to be moved to the space shown in the previous post. Bruce.

    Thanks @gnxs! Yeah we seem to have the same modus operandi! Gonna be awhile before I can move up any more because we each need 35 visits to catch the person above us. There seem to be a lot of ties on the leaderboard right now, or at least more than I would have expected to see: (@tes-s and...

    Superchargers Don't Always Appear on Map - Why?

    The lightning bolt is (annoyingly) in different place depending on what version of the Model S you have. Could be in the upper right or the lower left. OP didn’t say what they have (well ideally it wouldn’t matter, but…). Bruce.

    Superchargers Don't Always Appear on Map - Why?

    As of a few years ago (depending on which software version you have, which in turn depends on what model and version of car you have), the map screen generally doesn't show Superchargers by default. If you want to see a display of the chargers around you, tap the CID to bring up some of the map...

    My post-Thanksgiving activities included a car control clinic (intended primarily for teenage drivers and their parents) at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, CA. Long story short, another family and us did a classic "California carpool" of six people in five cars to this event. I brought my Model...

    Squeaky refresh falcon wing door trim panel

    Thanks for the tip about the felt / Velcro tape! I had some heavy-duty Velcro lying around from previous projects and applied the fuzzy side where your photo showed. So far it's quieted my FWDs significantly (they weren't horrible before, just noticeably creaky and slightly annoying). While not...

    Usually, but there are execeptions. For example, Concord, CA is a 19-stall V2 installation. Bruce.

    Superchargers in Northern California (location speculation)

    Maybe slightly complicated by the fact that Castro Valley is not actually a city, it's an unincorporated area of Alameda County. Bruce.

    Superchargers in Northern California (location speculation)

    There are lots of other cities, even in the Tesla-saturated SF Bay Area, that don't have Superchargers. The city I live in (Lafayette) doesn't have any, but like Castro Valley, it does have other EV charging options. We can guess at the reasons why, but I doubt anyone outside of Tesla knows for...

    Supercharger - Marietta, GA - Windy Hill Rd SE

    Fun fact: "Concord, CA" and "Concord, CA - Diamond Blvd." have some stalls that are only separated by a few feet and some bushes. Until a fence was put up a year or two ago, you could walk through the landscaping to get from one to the other. ;) Bruce.

    Trip Report: San Francisco Bay Area to Las Vegas, NV (Presidents Day Weekend 2023)

    You're right, since part of the point of the trip was to go Supercharger hunting, destination chargers weren't really a priority. Usually I view them as an optimization but not something I'd really count on (based on past, and admittedly probably old experience). Also our trip was pretty short...

    Hit a tree branch and punctured front - Coolant leaking

    I can't speak authoritatively, but trying to drive any significant distance with visibly leaking coolant and possible battery pack damage sounds like a really bad idea to me. If you knew more about exactly what the damage was, that might mitigate some of the risk, but with just the information...

    "The uploaded image is too big"

    The original was around 7MB. Re-saved with the lowest JPEG resolution was about 1MB (which I admit is still pretty large). I think when I reduced the physical dimensions and resampled it was something like a few hundred KB. Bruce.

    "The uploaded image is too big"

    TLDR: "The uploaded image is too big" error message on TMC might refer to a limit on the physical (pixel) dimensions of an image, not the number of bytes in the file. Got a brand new iPhone 15 Pro to replace my old iPhone 11. I started getting a bunch of new problems uploading files into...

    Supercharger - Dublin, CA - Amador Valley Blvd (LIVE 3 Nov 2023, 12 V3 stalls)

    Contrast @israndy's picture with earlier on Saturday (about 10AM) when I had it all to myself. I'm guessing a scene like this will be rare in the future. Bruce.

    Yeesh! My trip from Lafayette wasn't too bad but I went pretty early this morning (left 845-ish), went through Castro Valley on 580 E to avoid 680 S, which was starting to look like a parking lot in advance of the closure. Bruce.

    We chatted last night, he’ll get it this afternoon. (I grabbed it this morning, might try to nab Burlingame this afternoon if I have time.) Note for people going to Dublin: there’s a closure of southbound 680 starting at 580 for a lot of this weekend. Bruce.

    Supercharger - Walnut Creek, CA - Palos Verdes Mall (under construction Sep 2023, 12 stalls)

    Not really worth a picture but there’s a porta potty here now, also they unwrapped one of the charger cabinets and did a little trenching in the parking lot. No posts installed yet but the bases are the rectangular v3/v4 type. Bruce.

    Supercharger - Leavenworth, WA - US-2 (LIVE 30 Oct 2023, 8 V3 stalls)

    I'm afraid the name is unlikely to be anything significantly different. Tesla names Supercharger locations based on the city containing the address of the Supercharger (plus sometimes the street name). TMC and supercharge.info track that because consistency in naming is important. Bruce.

    Supercharger - Walnut Creek, CA - Palos Verdes Mall (under construction Sep 2023, 12 stalls)

    No apparent change in the state of the site, although there are some "no parking" signs for the next couple weeks (10/30 - 11/18) in the parking spaces between the Supercharger spaces and the EVgo spaces. Bruce.

    Supercharger - Fremont, CA - Civic Center Drive (LIVE 17 Oct 2023, 8 V3 stalls)

    All stalls operational tonight when I went here for a touch-and-go. Note that the posts aren't visible from the street, you have to drive all the way to the back of a parking lot, and it's not particularly easy to see the posts. The pin on the nav is accurate, fortunately. Bruce.

    Yeah that's exactly right. Or, I guess more generically, for people who might have problems holding on to the Supercharger connector in its usual location. This was told to me by some installers, as well as someone who needs to make use of this other handle. Bruce.
