    Pulled into Moab 8pm , all 4 of 4 Superchargers ICE'd for the night by hotel guests I suspect. Very disapointed.

    I just looked to see if it is illegal to park an ICE in an EV charging spot in Utah and apparently no such law exists in the state yet

    Chronic problem in Moab. That's why I didn't stay at the Best Western last trip out that way. Hope they're reading!

    I have been to this location several times. The parking lot for that motel is not very large. I can see how if the place is sold out, those extra Tesla spots can be easily ICEd.

    Putting my foot in someone else's shoe, if I were a guest there with a ton of people and luggage and a full parking lot, I can see how tempting those spots are.

    Just not a great exact location for a supercharger.

    I wonder too if the motel has the license # of their guests and could contact them. A lot of places with small parking lots do this even in small towns.

    A hotel employee was interested in Tesla — usual questions — and mentioned that the black Escalade belonged to another hotel employee. He then went to ask him to move it. I was only there for about fifteen minutes (enough to get me to Dead Horse Point State Park and back if it turned out that I couldn't charge at my campsite for some reason). During that time the other Model S finished charging and left. The red Eclipse owners were hotel guests and packed up and left. The employee came and moved his Escalade. By the time I left, all of the Superchargers were open again.

    By the way, all the campsites at Dead Horse Point State Park have RV pedestals with 14-50 outlets:

    My links in this post had disappeared and since I can't edit it I will try to repost it here with the pictures:
    Anyway, there has been a development on the Moab Supercharger: the parking lot was repainted and the Tesla spaces are clearly marked:

    I would guess that this will reduce icing considerably.

    That's good. I've been there a couple of times, and unless it's mid-day, when everyone's out, ICEing is a problem there.
