    I'm modifying my curbside charging station so I can permanently mount an HPWC or UMC behind a lockable hinged door in the bollard so I don't have to attach and reattach everything when I charge. The Tesla plug and cable will be stored behind the lockable door, and when I need to charge I'll just unlock the door, pull enough cable out, and plug it into the car.

    But I'll need an extra UMC to do this. Can't find anywhere on the Tesla site where they're available yet but I to get everything set up I'll need to obtain one before delivery. Any ideas or does someone have a spare they are willing to sell?

    Right now they are in very limited supply. Other threads have stated that new cars are being held up waiting on the UMC. That is why you don't see them for sale at this point. They simply don't have enough of them.

    I was told a few days ago but my delivery specialist to give the service center a call to get on a list and that they have been getting shipments in every few weeks. We were also talking about the winter tire packages so there is a change that is was he was referring to but I understood it as the UMC.

    I was able to purchase a second one for a similar use, but it took over a month on backorder to get it. Be patient...

    Just ordered a UMC with the Washington DC Service Center. $530 including tax. A pretty fair price, I think. My Leaf/Volt connector was twice the price.

    Thanks for the advice all:biggrin:
