    Took me a bit to recognize the reflection of the brake light, too. At first, I thought it was a new lighted symbol on the urban post.

    Wow great news, Finally operational after about one year. Just before noon today Saturday my car display shows three cars charging.
    It happens that just yesterday I traded in my 2013 model S running great and looking great with 93,000 miles for a 2018 model S inventory car with 50 miles and auto pilot. I’ll be heading out this afternoon to Fontana to help celebrate. Hands on the wheel of course.

    Saw a lot of use this morning. At least 5-6 cars there this morning. I charged both mine there today while only have to drive 5 min home to swap cars, simply awesome.

    Now I have a Supercharger 2 miles from home, and another one 1.5 mile from my work. I will probably never use either one of those as I got free charging (solar) at home. So sad LOL.

    Moderator note: multiple posts discussing gaps in the Supercharger network in this region and possible locations for future Superchargers and best routes between Superchargers and personal charging routines and...other stuff were moved to Superchargers in Southern California (location speculation)

    Carry on.

    This is why we can't have nice things. Beware of your rear clearance, people!

    Edit: pretty easy to get it back on.

    Saw it off last week, it goes back on but I feel like it should snap in place better. Maybe they will have someone out to fix it.

    Wife had the same experience but she did not give me the stall number. I will be charging this weekend, if I encounter it, I will report it to Tesla.

    Moderator note: questions to @Bueno about his towing a trailer with an S should be either done via a private message (a “Conversation”) or in a new thread in the Model S Driving Dynamics forum.

    Thank you.

    Anyone in the area, do you notice Fontana getting a lot of use yet? Is it improving congestion at Rancho Cucamonga at all? (Fontana was at ~20 available last night when I looked, but it was pretty late at the time.)

    Max I’ve ever seen at Fontana is 12/24 in use. It seems to have alleviated some but not all traffic from RC. Fontana is much more suited for non urban SC as it’s so much closer to two freeways and way less of a challenge to get in/ out.
