Re: Charging Down Route 66

Funny speaking about the DCQC at Edwardsville. Had a bit of a scare there. Had to call Greenlots to get it to work. It did work but oddly my AC didnt come on.

Re: Charging Down Route 66

Re: Charging Down Route 66

One MAIN bit of advice, 3 days into the 55 day round trip. GET YOUR EVSE UPGRADE!. This upgraded quicker charger is a massive improvement. It has saved us twice on this trip already! As far as today went, we charged at the Adventist Hospital in Bolingbrook. Crazy fast L2 Chargepoint!. Then we topped...
