    > There was an asphalt trailer in one of the supercharger spots on the return trip. [Beavis]

    Was it up against the fenced-in transformer? That slot is NOT part of the SC actually. They brought it back around 4pm and subsequently all the SC slots around me were ICEed one by one. Sat nite lots of activity on the Marriott Campus. Nice neighborhood to walk around with navigator and also to pedal circus bike. Had 11 hours to kill waiting for Denver Service to pick up my dead MS and deliver a P85(!) for me to drive back home. Always a good idea to carry amusements in the MS. I drove 200 miles arriving at 12:30 for the group event, backed into an SC slot, and that was the end of my 12 volt supply!! Luckily I had lowered the windows with the last of the 12v power- one of the front windows I could just reach in and move the latch (rear door latches are electric).

    Well after dark had a long conversation with the ICE guy parked next to me. Then at 11pm SilTronIX (?) from Denver showed up for a Super Charging in his silver MS. Lucky for him the ICE guy was there to open up a slot. Otherwise would have been difficult to have desk clerk look thru all the registrations by plate number to find an ICE to move their car. This is a reverse ICE situation as compared to a Mall SC. At midnight Denver Service showed up with my ride and hauled away my dead MS. Driver plus 2 honchos in the pickup + nice aluminum flatbed drove the 175 miles on a Sat night to rescue me (bless them all!). Bus full of wedding party guests arrived back at the same time we were loading. More festivities and Tesla-talking to close out the day. No one seemed in a rush to head back home!

    Wow. I hate that the 12V continues to be a problem. The service center called me a couple of months ago and told me they needed to load a software fix to address a 12V issue because the car had sent them a warning message. Nevertheless, I am always wondering if my 12V will be next.

    Back on topic...yes, it was parked next to what I now know is the transformer. In hindsight, you are right. It wasn't blocking a supercharger because the charger was on the passenger side of the parking spot. You are more perceptive than I am or maybe just had way more time hanging around than I did.

    Oh, I almost forgot:

    That was a long wait, but at least they made the trip on a Saturday night! I would have enjoyed hanging out longer if I didn't have commitments back home. It was a pleasure meeting you and splitting a burrito :)

    I know this is OT, but since I have attention of Colo guys, I wonder what was the cost to register the MS?

    Not yet. The best way to see if it is open is to look at the map on the official Tesla website. The map showed Glenwood as open prior to the email announcement.

    I stopped by the Glenwood Springs superchargers this weekend. You are right that the supercharger spots are quite close to the hotel. OTOH maybe people are starting to figure out those are special parking spots. I stopped by around 7:45 PM on Saturday and again around 10:30 AM on Sunday and there was one ICE SUV in one of the spots both the times but that spot was clearly marked as open parking outside the hours of 12 PM - 8 PM. 4 spots marked as EV parking only were open both times.

    That is just bad timing for me, since I have to be in Las Vegas on business on Thursday. Anyway, glad to see Silverthorne open soon!

    Just get home early. From OpenSnow.com:

    Plan for rain and snow above 6,500 feet from US50 (Monarch Pass, Gunnison) north to Wyoming and east to the front range from Thursday night through midday Friday, with colder air lingering until Saturday morning. I'll work on the details as the storm gets closer.​
