  1. Frunk completely dead

    Dead frunk here. Opened, then never closed. Wasn't able to get it working with any kind of emergency release button use. Now to see if the dealer can properly diagnose and repair.
  2. F-150 Lightning to gain access to Tesla Superchargers! Get standard NACS port starting 2025!

    Could be bad for existing owners if the adapter sucks. In that scenario, resale values would fall significantly when NACS option is made available with the XYZ option bundle.
  3. Off Grid solar charging station is up and running.. weather permitting!

    That's what my comment was based on - hoping they get to market with it soon!
  4. Realtruck's Retrax Retractable Tonneau Covers Spotlight!

    I bought the RetraxPRO XR from Realtruck and the Yakima hardware from The Rack Shop who have a nice package with heavy duty bars ready to go for this (kit is minus the bicycle mounts and associated matching lock cores for Yakima lock points also purchased). All went well.
  5. Home Integration System Battery

    You might look into this HV battery:
  6. Minimum SOC for DC fast charging

    I'm guessing this was more to do with the state of your 12V battery. I am not sure how or why that would have drained, but it probably makes sense to keep a jump pack onboard.
  7. Is the "used" market normal for F150 depreciation at this point? Or is it worse?

    $75K is not a $15K loss for those who got 2022s at initial pricing (and before parts stripping). After tax credit, I'd still be ahead at $75K with a Lariat.
  8. Using the generator port of hybrid inverters for home backup

    I see what you are saying now. Yous ha e to make sure the Sol Ark switches the neutral, and if it does you could use as a transfer switch.
  9. Using the generator port of hybrid inverters for home backup

    The Sol Ark 15K interfaces with a 48V battery, and the Lightning pack is hundreds of volts.
  10. Pro Level 2 charge maxes out at 10.5 kW

    Voltage when current is flowing will be different than when measuring without load. What is the size of wire and approximate length of circuit back to panel?
  11. Is charging in cold safe?

    You have not damaged the battery. You think Ford would allow that? The cells are heated sufficiently to take the charge. There is a big difference between damaging a "raw" lithium ion cell, and ruining one with a warranty-worthy bms ensuring you don't jack the battery. Just relax, only high...
  12. Why I didn’t purchase the lightning I reserve two years ago.

    If you need assurance a specific DCFC will even exist, it is probably not for you at this time (and I would want all the goodies if buying top of the line, inflated cost vehicle). Depending on the deployment, it is easy to see operators allow DCFC repairs to languish in the US at least. This is...
  13. 2025 Ram 1500 REV Revealed!! Have a reservation placed? Sign in here! 🙋🏻‍♂️

    Big agree on the lack of 800V being a miss. Disagree on impact of no heat pump.
  14. Am I crazy - L1 at home is adequate?

    I'm not sure that looks like a battery pre-conditioning, just seems to keep battery temp above a minimum needed to take some charger (an apparently not enough charge to keep the battery from re-cooling off). The power used looks well above L1 maximum, so must be using some battery power to...
  15. Am I crazy - L1 at home is adequate?

    It's less energy efficient - more waste heat created when charging at 120V.
  16. Off Grid solar charging station is up and running.. weather permitting!

    Wouldn't it be great to have it DC (DC/DC converter version required) via a low power home CCS EVSE with CCS directing MPPT power delivered to the vehicle?
  17. Disabling Reverse Beep and Droning Sound

    I just installed your product and am happy to have the reverse droning deleted without the vehicle noticing. I'll mention that after installation I was getting an active air dam failure alarm (after getting up to highway speeds) and was concerned. I quickly realized that I had secured the...
  18. Get a Tesla for $7500 off plus 10k SC miles

    I guess it depends by vehicle and time window. This spreadsheet is showing a LR model Y up $14.99k since intro, not including "inflating" add-on software.
