    Okay so we're taking a trip up to Lake Almanor CA and I'm trying to decide if it's feasible to take our Model S 90D... The closest supercharger is in Corning CA and a destination charger in Susanville but nothing at the lake. I'm really trying to figure out if it's feasible to use the Corning CA SC or if the elevation change coming back sucks too much energy? The designation charger in Susanville "could" be an option if we can find enough things to do there for several hours..

    Thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Yeah I'm looking at segments closely. If I stop and do a 100% charge at Corning I can get to my destination with roughly 47% left. That's plenty to get over to destination charger in Susanville to recharge. The question remains whether I can stay in Susanville long enough to get the charge I need from the destination charger as I'll have to stop there a couple of times to add some more juice... It's the elevation changes that scare me and I've never been to that area before so I have no idea...

    Yeah I'm actually staying at one (second from the left) but it's 30A 120V only hookups so where we're at won't help for charging... LOL :)

    Hi Jeff, I recommend using the EVTO app, it’s very good for planning.

    Tesla doesn't make an adapter specifically for that, but you can cobble together adapters and charge at 16A at about 3 MPH on that.

    Looks as if there may be a number of campgrounds there. That tens to mean a lot of 14-50s

    Then we can't plug in our RV and given how slow of a charge that is... It's a lose/lose... :) I'm going to call around to see where I can reasonably park and plug in for a few hours here and there... Seems like there is a way to make this work.
