    I am moving from Hawaii to Florida. The car will be 30-40days in transit with both boat and car carrier. I am worried about the battery being untended for this trip. Tesla hasn't responded to my message, so I thought I'd see if anyone has done something comparable and what worked for them. Thanks.

    While this isn't quite the same, I parked my S in the PHX Airport for 18 days last month( and it was hot) and it used 20 miles of range, I made sure that I had Range Mode On, Always Connected Off and while it probably didn't matter, Cabin Overheat protection off. ( I think it only does the Overheat protection for about 24 hours) YMMV.

    I have a co-worker that parks his S outside. After a 3 week vacation he lost less than 5 miles a day.
