Re: Attached Garage Air Conditioner

Looks clean and professionally installed. The only thing I notice is the extra coiled up line set behind the compressor but that's okay. The system was pre-charged for that amount of copper anyway. What kind of connectors do they use for the line set?

Nice work! Thanks for showing us.

Re: Troubleshooting and repair for On-board Charger, DC-DC Converter

I have noticed in the past how warm the interior of my car gets while charging on L2 (I'd say about 90 degrees with the windows up) so I started using my home DIY upgraded Mitsubishi evse that someone posted about here last year where you change out a small power supply and the cord plug and and it ...

Re: 4 Years & 100k miles/160k km Review & Range Test

Congrats on achieving 100 k miles. It seems that the battery in the 2014 is very robust.

Btw: I see from the map that you’re from the Montreal area. I just finished with a conference in the Point Claire area. Very close!

Re: Does this belong to anyone?

A woman in Oakland has one like this. I can't remember her name but she let me test drive hers 3 years ago which lead to me buying a used 2012. In fact, I will have had it 3 years next month.

Re: Santa Monica Boulevard

Did the guy run over a piece of steel? That's happened before. I believe the car will tell you to pull over and exit the vehicle while the flames vent out the bottom. I think we're going through another negative news media blitz similar to the Toyota Prius one 10 years ago where a Prius battery fail...

Re: 12V battery BCI Size?

. . . . but a flooded lead acid battery in a lithium powered car just seems so . . . . Twentieth Century :lol: Don That would be great if they could find a dc to dc converter robust enough to power all the controls and accessories without a lead acid battery. Obviously it would have to be powered u...

Re: Gas Cans --> Electric Mowers

Coincidences, coincidences! Our 40 volt weedeater is a Ryobi that we bought from Home Depot 4 or 5 years ago - It's been great. The weedeater battery is only 2 Ah though, so I thought it probably wouldn't be good in the mower Don Yes coincidenes! My weedeater battery is a 2.6 Ah and did very well. ...

Re: Gas Cans --> Electric Mowers

We just bought a 19" Kobalt mower with a 5 Ah 40 volt battery to use as a trimmer mower around the yard. With more than an acre to mow, sometimes every single week (with sun everyday and rain once or twice a week, everything grows FAST) it would never do for the majority of the yard, but it's ...

$1180

I almost feel better since this price certainly includes California tire recycling fees but does it include sales tax? :?: :?

Re: They want my car

My dealer sent me an email saying my vehicle is "Past Due for its recommended maintenance" and to "please schedule an appointment" and then some coupon offers: The Works Coupon $29.95: Includes engine oil change but synthetic and diesel excluded. Too bad. :? :( Also a filter chan...
