I can charge with my bike on my rack with no issues. No need to swing or unload.

Depending on the site build and signage location then plugging in stretches the cord and puts extra pressure on the plug.
BUT, my point was also that this bike rack gives you a lot of flexibility for access to the rear of your vehicle for all reasons.

Oh yeah, that's a good point. I've seen some chargers with signs right behind the parking spot which would cause problems.

Put it in trailer mode, I believe that it gets rid of the beep from rear sensors. Not much you can do about the cameras though :)

Absolutely love the Kuat Piston Pro X. Its expensive, but you get what you pay for.
I put my hitch rack on my X for the first time yesterday and was surprised at how annoying it is compared to how my S was. Does Trailer Mode really solve that? I went to put it in trailer mode but it had a big warning about not doing it unless you’re pulling a trailer.

I keep my rack in all the time so I just disable my parking sensor sound.
