Oh, and there is (are) a device(s) that will 'morph' a Tesla L2 ("destination charger") into a J-1772 plug, useful at hotels. They are sort of expensive, but if you use it ONCE to avoid a tow on your trip, you have come out ahead.
I saw an article posted on the Bolt forum that Tesla is going to start using the car's ID Data to only allow Teslas to use their Destination Chargers.
I have to wait to see how that plays out.
Plus I would only use one if there was a place close by that offered that kind of charging for free.
I saw one at a Winery once when I took a daringly long trip in the Spark EV. They also had a network L2. I think I had to pay at it.
Thanks again for all the advice above!
Only,, when you are way out there on the EV Highway, sometimes there aren't many Plan B or C for some of those locations, you think?
I have my 25 ft. 12 ga. extension cord and my stock EVSE. I was considering making an adapter cord for plugging into a 240 V, NEMA 14-50 outlet, like at a KOA, but I decided to go without that. I only have the EVSE's rated to 3.3kW anyway.
I get on the plane tomorrow morning and I'm giving us 4 days of Road Trip Vaca with nice overnights planned!
Used '14 2LT w/ DCFC. +85k miles.
Mostly free charging! Only one LONG visit to the shop....
GM needs Modern Troubleshooting tools for Modern EV's.
3 step Trouble Tree, 1st try car died again, 2nd try / cost $800. 3rd try fixed the problem.
