    Model Y - cycles -Tesla towbar or are there aftermarket options?

    Perhaps a bit premature (I am still waiting for a VIN, and I don't believe and UK owners have their car yet) but... For those considering getting Tesla to install towbar on their Y, what is your main reason for doing so? For me, I only want to add a cycle carrier so I'm thinking the Tesla...

    Towing extension cable

    For those of you who tow, I would LOVE to buy an extension charging cable so I do not have to unhook the trailer to charge. I have seen a few SuperCharger stations with a charger that could work for towing but they seen to be in the majority. A cable about 15' long would allow us to nose in...

    After towing, I removed the hook and kind of reattached the plastic protection cover/ plate. It seemed okay, but it probably wasn’t tight enough; I lost this plate. Tesla sent me a new one including 2 screws, rings and 2 metal small parts. I have no clue how have to use these. Does anyone know...

    Towing a T@B trailer with Model S

    So, I've been sitting on this thought for a while and after much online research and not finding much great definitive info I decided to just dive in. I drive a Model S P85DL and installed a tow hitch on it and 4-flat wiring harness. It has the staggered 21" turbines and we generally get...

    Trailer Hitch Confusion (Chapter N, where N >> 1)

    Why is this (the European/Norwegian ball hitch for the Model X and a standard part from Bosal) (Thanks to Bjorn Nyland): compatible with these tow hitch rules for the US Model X: The European ball hitch clearly violates the 3/4" ball offset rule in the US manual. Did Tesla put a...

    Question for folks with EcoHitch installed on Model S

    Hi everyone, I recently got an EcoHitch installed on my 2016 Model S. For those of you who have had this or a similar hitch installed on your Model S, how do you protect the underside of your vehicle? The L shaped hitch protrudes from the bottom of the car for which the installer had to cut out...

    Bosal Hitch Adapter Loosening

    As some may know, I'm in the middle of a ~3500 mile trip towing my Airstream with the X. Within about 5 days, I started to notice that there was a little play in my receiver. I could wiggle it ever so slightly back and forth, where it was perfectly tight beforehand. I'd estimate about 1/16th of...
