Re: Charging Down Route 66

Drove to Waynesville and Charged to full (75 miles again) at Lamplight Lane RV park (nema 14-50) . Hosts John and Barbara were outstanding. Played with the...

Re: Charging Down Route 66

Today was a great example of the effects of weather on travel in the imiev. We awoke to Extreme Thunder and Lightning ..unfortunately we needed to charge a LOT to make it to St. James MO. We dont charge in Bad Thunderstorms due to the worry about Voltage Surges. So when we left Pacific MO we only ha...

Re: Charging Down Route 66

Yep. Exactly as i did it. Turns out that we ran out of charging time(had to check out at 11). We are now charging at Sullivan MO at an Auto Zone. Many stories to tell of Sullivan. More on that when we arrive at Greenstay Inn at St James MO at about 6PM. They have a J1772 L2 there. Note: we have caug...

Re: Charging Down Route 66

Interesting situation here at Day 7. Heavy Thunderstorms here easing to light rain. Read somewhere on this forum about someone who put their EVSE inside their car to keep it dry to charge safely. I thought...ok...we'll try it. Ran an extension cord into the slightly open back window to the EVSE whic...

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. My AC always comes on when quick charging. Strange. Seemed OK though. Went to lunch at Hen House on Chain of Rocks road. After a diversion ar...

Re: Charging Down Route 66

Agree, Joe S. I guess what is spooking me most is the awesome performance I am getting on the Freeway sections I have experenced. Absolutely did not expect that. This is a good, but totally unexpected thing. It DOES make me leery of passing any DCQC by..
