    Camp Mode Battery Drain - M3

    Hello Everyone. I Tesla-camped Summer 2021 many nights across the NE USA. I also recently completed a 2-day visit to Key West, FL and stayed at a camp site (that didn’t allow Tesla charging 😠). My battery drain rate was mostly in the range of 25%-30% on all of my nights in 2021 and 2022 for...

    Safety: Camping

    I’m thinking of camping inside my Model X. I browsed the net and though I didn’t find any stories of Tesla owners camping in their cars falling victim to any crimes, I am still a bit weary of the idea. While campers and RVs can be quite expensive, they are not as exposed as a Model X, nor do...

    Camper mode + Entertainment

    This might sound silly, but it's actually something I've been experimenting with all day today. When sleeping in the car there has been a way to put it in "camper mode" before, that is you put the car in neutral, engage the parking brake from the Safety and Security page and then lock the car...

    Looking to rent someone's DreamCase for Model S in Southern California

    I'm planning to take a roadtrip later this week and have been wanting to use a DreamCase to sleep on the road rather than stay at hotels. Anyone in or near Orange County have one they're willing to rent out to me from 9/5 to around 9/14? Thanks!

    Posting from inside camper-mode enabled MS

    My son and I are out in Monterey to have some dad-son bonding fun while ladies are out attending wedding out of state. After surfing and dinner, the MS is plugged into a 50AMP (using Tesla supplied 14-50 NEMA adapter) in a close-by RV camp. When we were setting up the rear sleeping area, some...

    Road trip to test out camper mode

    Last weekend I had an aikido seminar to go to in Germany and a 7 hour drive to get there. So, I used this opportunity to test out the new camper mode along the way. Turns out it's working great, as long as you don't forget to turn off the alarm before it wakes you up ;-) Time to break out the...
