Kevin, until we do a controlled test I'd be inclined to not bug ChargePoint
about this. I charged yesterday at a dual station and did not see this problem (I don't know if another car used the other port on that station during that time as there was no one there when I started or finished). Forgot to take a screenshot.

No recalls showed as 'open'. I asked specifically if the SC-13-001 February 2013 recall shows on the list, and the answer was less definite. He just described some dates and work (one being "computer update"), but none labeled by that recall number (as least that he could quickly see). So I'm thinking that even if that recall were optional, I would hope the database would show it as 'still needed' for my car, so I'm thinking my car likely did get that recall done.
I still can't help but wonder if there is a connection because that recall definitely affected the 'timeout' duration in addition to fixing whatever the incompatibility was with the Clipper Creek EVSE .... ooooh, I'll be driving through Auburn tomorrow (home of Clipper Creek) and I'll stop in and see if I can talk with someone in their engineering department and ask them what the issue was. In the meantime, Kevin, perhaps you might stop by the Mitsu dealer and stand over them as they look up your VIN and try to get them to verify that the SC-13-001 recall had been done.
On a brighter note, today I verified that I can induce a temporary charging interruption by the car using the Remote ... programming the ON time stops the charging (and entering zero will allow charging to restart immediately after concluding the next step) so diddling with the Remote to keep it from turning itself off gives us that minute or two that the car is not charging. Completing the process by simply putting in some arbitrary ON-->OFF time and then hitting the top key gets the car charging again. For our purposes, I simply don't know whether this adequately simulates the car's 'timeout' but in the interest of saving time this is the first thing I will try when I get together with my ChargePoint
friend.Has anyone else (other than jray3) seen this problem with a dual-port ChargePoint station?
Once again, the problem is that the charge level goes up to only 1.1kW instead of the full 3kW after the car's charging 'timeout'.
