    I've got to go there for two days of work on site and I don't see any really good charging options.

    I could do a range charge at Gilroy and spend about 25% of a charge getting there. Then I just have to hope that vampire drains and local driving leave me with 25% remaining to get back to Gilroy when the job is done.

    Anyone know of anything local? Haven't found any on Recargo or Plugshare except for a couple of campsites that I could use as emergency backup.

    rvparky.com is a RV directory that lists 50 Amp outlets in RV parks that you can usually access for charging.

    I did a quick search around the Los Banos area, and found 2 within 10 mile radius.

    The KOA Campground near Los Banos has NEMA 14-50 outlets for charging. That would be a good back up in case vampire drain or local driving brings you down too low to get back to Gilroy.

    why not just trickle charge? 48 hours will yield around 160 miles (+/- a few miles)
