What's in your (f/t)runk... RIGHT NOW!

My dad sent this pic and told me his Tesla has a V8 under the hood

In the trunk storage I have a safety kit (first aid, jumper, multitool etc), reusable grocery bags/containers, a small vacuum, a change poncho/seat towel (one that goes over the head rest for beach days) and a deepsleep.

I don't have anything in the frunk. I didn't use it much in my S except for groceries and it was twice as big.

I have a couple cup size trash bins in the front, a small duster, umbrella, and a water flask that stays in the Y

Jealous of that V8 tho...

I added an auxiliary 12 V cord connected directly to the battery, and protected by a fuse,
so I have a 12 V available even when the car is asleep.

I use it time to time to recharge my phone or a laptop when parked,
but could be used to power a tire air inflator, recharge the battery of a OneWheel,
or a minifridge to keep your V8 chill ,...

I also have a Bluetooth 12 V battery monitor connected to it, which allow me to check the 12 V battery status,
and follow when the battery get recharged, which is typically 2 hours every two days when I'm not driving.
