    Just ordered 2 of the new HPWC for the sharing function (X soon to join the S) but they've been on back order for quite some time. Anyone with an experience of ordering them, how long did you have to wait?

    Wow, let's see what happen to my order then. There was no stock at any of the SC I contacted.

    Yep, same here, my 2nd one arrived within the same week of order last month. Heads up though......Tesla requires a signature at delivery. They will not leave it.

    You need to make better friends with your Fedex person. They can "sign" for it.

    Oh....she is great but said Tesla had strict insurance policy requirements for values GT $500. Anyway, it was just a heads-up and perhaps as you noted others will have gutsier FedX drivers. ;)

    You can sign a liability release with FedEx, which will work unless the shipper specifically disallows waivers. It goes onto your account and address so you only have to do it once.

    I ordered it last week and still no word.

    There is no place to check the status of my order.

    Ordered last week as well and no word as yet. Am concerned as maybe closing in on delivery date, actually no word on that either.

    You can install the wiring. If the connector does not arrive in time just install a NEMA 14-50 receptacle. Once the connector does arrive, its a quick job to swap them. This is what I had to do.

    @CmdrThor was it easy to cancel your online order when the SC had them in stock?

    Yes, I just replied to the email they sent telling me it was backordered and they cancelled it no problem.
