Here is my X towing our boat.
Ur car works now?
How much does it change your Wh/ mile?
It has limited functionality at low speeds.

Once I get the car repaired, I will compare Wh/mile with and without a trailer.
Could you post what is your MX rated Wh/mile (as shown in the energy app)?
I will as soon as the car is repaired. At the moment, I can not drive it except at very low speeds.
Thank you for the reply! Actually there is no need to drive the vehicle in order to see what is rated Wh/mile. As an example, below is the snap shot of energy app from my car. The solid line at 300Wh/mile (noted with word "rated" on the right side of the screen) signifies that "rated" energy consumption for my car is 300 Wh/mile.
Look at that, no drama whatsoever.
How much does the boat weigh? It doesn't look too heavy.
She is a 23' twin engine boat. Loaded with gear and fuel she is about 4,850 lbs.
I couldn't even feel her behind the X. Felt better than towing her with my Navigator.
I was surprised and quite impressed!
That's awesome. I know that many folks will be curious to see how the Wh/mi changes when you're towing that at highway speeds. Once you're back up and running you've got a good excuse to go boating!
I suspect that is because the X has so much more low speed torque than the Navigator. The X makes towing seem effortless compared to an ICE.
That's great news to hear. One of the things I was wondering about is if the Model X tow rating was tested against the J2807 standard (That Dam Towing Test: New SAE Trailering Standards Explained - Tech Dept. - Car and Driver). In particular, I wonder if the Model X cooling system can handle hauling 5,000 pounds up a long grade with full AC running.
I like this view of the boat through the rear view camera. Made connecting the trailer a breeze.
What's the tongue weight on that trailer?
I am told that it is around 450 +/-
Is that within the tongue weight rating of the X?
Afaik Tesla hasn't released tongue weight rating. But would love to know if they have...
That sounds rather high for a boat of that size, and looking at the way it's sitting on the trailer I'd expect it to be much less than that. I have a 23 footer and can easily lift the tongue up, though admittedly mine should have more tongue weight than it does.
Beautiful X by the way, the color is great.
That plus no shifting jerk and engine revving.
