An issue with the 16KW Destination stns with Tesla-Tap

On two different Zero Electric motorcycles with two different types of external chargers, two different type of Tesla-Taps I have an issue with 16KW Tesla Destination charge stations. They work normally for five to ten minutes and shut down, with the red light on the Tesla Destination Stn. Every time.

See my Plugshare check-ins here and here.

But it all works perfectly at home with my newer 12 KW set up Tesla Wall Connector.

I also tried one of these, on the 16K units, it did NOT help.

The exact configuration is the 16KW Tesla Destination Charge Station to a Tesla-Tap to two external 240 VAC Elcon chargers plus bike on-Board Charger, total of as much as 8KW on my 2017 Zero SR and as much as 6.3 KW on my Zero DS.

On my Energica motorcycle, which has a normal 3KW built in AC charger, the 16 KW units work fine.

I would like to know what causes the issue on the 16KW stations with my external chargers for my Zero even if there isn't anything I can do about it.
