  1. Charging supplies for road trips, a list with links.

    See, this is what happens when all of your EV experience is with a different standard. Thank you. I concur that your solution is better.
  2. Charging supplies for road trips, a list with links.

    That's kind of why I said do your research. Know which adapter you might need. And no, there, aren't RV parks everywhere, just most places. For instance, one place I'll go is my high school buddy's house who lives out in the middle of nowhere. No RV parks. But he has a 6-50 outlet in his shop...
  3. Charging supplies for road trips, a list with links.

    Sounds like a great idea, if you have a J1772 receptacle on your car. I might be mistaken here, but doesn't the Mach-e just have a CCS receptacle with a J1772 adapter? So, to use this cord you're going to need to convert from CCS to J1772, and then J1772 to CCS. Again, great idea--but to be...
  4. Charging supplies for road trips, a list with links.

    Good points, especially the one about reducing max current to 80% of the circuits rated capacity. I'll add that to the original post. You should always of course follow manufacturer recommendations about use of extension cords. The Tesla cord is 20 feet long. The Ford version will most likely...
  5. Charging supplies for road trips, a list with links.

    ****Warning**** The following is what I imagined I would do if manufacturer legal departments were willing to approve extension cord use for charging. Bear in mind this is simply a theoretical exercise, it's purely fiction. I would NEVER recommend anything other than manufacturer approved...
  6. So I joined the Mustang Club of America . . .

    Not surprising at all. Tribalism is deeply ingrained in many. You've got the Tesla fanboys on the Tesla forums acting much the same. And don't forget the Tesla haters right here on this forum! ;) There is a high capacity in the human race to hate that which is different. Rational thought is...
  7. Reservation to customer order/deposit conversion detailed for dealers

    I think the order agreement on pre-orders leaves wiggle room for Tesla, but they have never used it. In fact, the many of the Y pre-orders were upgraded at no additional cost to the buyer. (Due to the version not ending up being produced as pre-ordered.) Mainly upgraded interiors and wheels. As...
  8. Things to consider when DIY installing a wall charger / outlet

    I did a little research on this just now. It looks a little like a gray area. I found this which would indicate the outlet isn't applicable: I also found a small bit on the Intuit website that indicated the outlet would be considered part of the credit, as long as you installed the outlet...
  9. Things to consider when DIY installing a wall charger / outlet

    I'm pretty sure the cost of DIY installation of an EV charger is also included. (The charger itself, wiring, conduit, etc. Not labor for DIY.) The cost of adding a 240v outlet is not though.
  10. Is the Mach-E really 7 years behind Tesla?

    It surprised me too. 70 mph with the AC on I would have expected significantly less.
  11. Things to consider when DIY installing a wall charger / outlet

    I've installed two 240v wall mounted chargers. No, it's not difficult if you know what you're doing. IF. There are a number of code issues that need to be followed. Following code is important if you don't want to burn down your house or electrocute somebody. If you do it yourself, get a permit...
  12. Preparing for Mach-E charging at home - preparation and installing charger

    I've installed two 240v wall mounted chargers. No, it's not difficult if you know what you're doing. IF. There are a number of code issues that need to be followed.

  13. Is the Mach-E really 7 years behind Tesla?

    You point out a very good example of the problems with government. The government (FAA) had a large oversight role with Boeing that they completely and utterly screwed up. This is a prime example of just how badly government bureaucrats screw up when given the chance. But yes, let's give those...
  14. Is the Mach-e really in the same market as the 3 or the Y?

    I disagree. I know many that are shopping both EV and ICE vehicles. At least here on the Left Coast, EV's have become a viable option to consider even for those who don't care about the environmental benefits. According to the Tesla sales people I've spoken too, the majority of folks that come...
  15. Is the Mach-e really in the same market as the 3 or the Y?

    It seems to me that the Mach-e is really placed in a niche between the Y and the 3. The E has more cargo space than the 3 and it's a hatchback. The E tows (I think it will anyways) and the 3 doesn't. The Y has more cargo space (now rated at 68cf) than the E, tows more than the E, and has more...
  16. Mach-E Towing Hitch Option Now Available!

  17. Is the Mach-E really 7 years behind Tesla?

    Agreed. I apologize for helping to keep this going. I'll put the troll on ignore now.
  18. Mach-E Towing Hitch Option Now Available!

    Good point, but try and get your facts straight. Add "3" after "Tesla" and you'd be correct. The X tows 5000# in the US, and the Y will be rated at 3200#. (The Y rating will come in an update in the coming months.)
  19. Is the Mach-E really 7 years behind Tesla?

    LOL, you make it sound like it's an option. yeah, if you had a 3, you'd be concerned about it's charging rate, not some theoretical maximum. Just more proof all of your knowledge comes from the internet, not experience.
  20. Mach-E Towing Hitch Option Now Available!

    Hi Hank, and welcome! I wouldn't worry about that. I'd be really, really shocked if the Mach-e didn't have some kind of towing option, especially in Europe. Probably an add on option after purchase. The only thing I'd wonder about is if it will be a hidden hitch like the Tesla Y, or a hitch...
