A quick google search indicates that "The Bicycle Company" in El Paso is no longer in business. Google reports them permanently closed and their web site is 404! It must be that someone who has there trailer is the problem.
I spent two months this year living at a Holiday Inn that is 50 yards from that supercharger (driving a rental gas burner). I'd go by it every day to see if there were any Teslas there. Saw some, but most of the time it was empty. Never saw it ICE'd in those two months. One day I'll drive there from Houston and use that supercharger...
Not surprising, most of the ICEing I have seen is Texas. El Paso is a good supercharger as there is a good BBQ and breakfast taco place right next to it. The coffee was just OK but would recommend the bacon and egg muffins.
I have visited 180 different superchargers over the last five years. I have seen this kind of ICEing several times. People with trailers don't know where to park and the superchargers are usually not in use and inviting to park there. The more the chargers are in use, the less likely this will happen.
It’s tempting to retaliate but I’d caution against it. Nothing like perpetuating a rivalry and one-up’ing each other to up everyone’s insurance rates in the long run (surely will turn to vandalism). A note might be good as some people really are clueless and need the learning opportunity. That said , I’d be really tempted to park in front and wait (perhaps claiming I’m just a passenger and that the owner should be back in a few hours ). But then I remember the above, fellow owners will pay for my bit if I do that...
Hard to know the reason for them parking there. Clearly they wont fit in a regular space. Was there room for his monstrosity elsewhere in the parking lot? It could have been an honest poor choice or it could have been malicious ICEing. We've seen many trucks purposely ICE SCs in the forums and news in the last several months. I'd agree that my anger escalated quickly as I viewed the photo. Without talking to the owner you really don't know. In any case, parking like that sure invites retaliation IMO
That guy is a dick, looking at google maps, that's Rudy's parking area. He went in to one of the eateries in that block. He could have parked his rig in the dirt area on S. Desert Blvd. and still have sight of it if he was in fear of someone wanting to steal it.
