    Using our second supercharger here in Weatherford Oklahoma, and noticed that all six of the connectors here are extremely tight in our car. Two of them won't even plug in completely, they just wedge in and stick.The supercharger in Ardmore fit fine, and my HPWC slips in and out easily too.Anyone see this before?

    No, but I did witness a situation where someone hadn't backed their car up close enough to the pedestal, and the cable was pulling sideways on the connector, causing it to jam in the port. It wasn't super-obvious what was happening.

    We were OK backing up enough. The connectors on the superchargers looked a little roughed up, I'll try to take a pic tomorrow.

    It would be nice if the added about two feet to the supercharger cables though.
