    Needed some "driving therapy" so took a long lunch and buzzed over to Hunstville.

    Pulled up to 3B and was getting amazing charging speed early on:

    ..but then about 15 minutes in the stall derped out on me and said something along the lines of "there is a problem with the stall". As a newb, should I report that to someone somewhere or is there automagic monitoring of stuff like that?

    Anyhow, moved over to 1A and finished the session with no issues.

    I always call and report. There's no automated monitoring as far as I know. They are usually very grateful that someone is notifying them and they will dispatch the crew to check it out.

    The Huntsville SC is having some major issues. I tried to call Tesla on Friday and Sunday about it, but the waits were over an hour both times.

    Both 2 A&B are out of commission although their lights are on. 3 A&B the lights are off, but they do deliver some power, but not much. 1A and 1B are hit or miss on the power output. On Sunday night there was a M3 on 1B while I was on 1A. After charging for about 1-2 minutes the power would shut off with a message to check charge handle. The charge ring on my car would be red and when I would click the button to pull it out of the car I could see the M3 indicator light come on red. After I pulled the handle out of my car the M3 would turn blue and I reinserted the charge handle into my car. Both cars would be blue and I could hear a bunch of clicks from the charge cabinets behind the fence. After about 30 seconds there would be another click and the cars would signal green and start charging for a few minutes. After about the 4th or 5th restart it charged for a good 10 minutes and I had enough juice to make it home so I left. I don't know if Tesla monitors these forums, or if someone here has an email for SC support, but we need to report these and get them repaired.

    I once quizzed phone support about reporting SC issues. They said you can’t report it by email, you have to phone it in, so I always call when I start charging and wait for them to pick up. They usually pick up before I unplug. Their support guy encouraged me to keep calling in problems, so I don’t think they’re aware of these outages unless we call.

    Right now the Nav reports that 4 of 6 stalls are available in Huntsville. It should report reduced service if they were aware of the problem.
