  1. Prediction - Ford will move charge port location

    Gaining access to the Superchargers and commitment to move to NACS I also predict Ford will move the charging port to the back drivers side. I'm kind of surprised they didn't make that move for the '24's, but I guess they will save it and do it all at once. If they don't for the Lightning I...
  2. Location and sizing of Generator Plug

    I'm ready to embark getting set up to use the truck for power backup to the house. With no good option for a whole panel neutral switch I'm going with the panel lockout and a generator plug. Two questions I'm looking for some feedback / insight on. A note - my electrical panel is on the wall...
  3. Tesla recall - font size

    I'm surprised someone hasn't been here to throw Tesla under the bus again about another "recall" - so here it is https://www.fastcompany.com/91022964/teslas-cars-just-got-recalled-over-a-font Recalling most all Teslas on the road due the font size of warnings displayed on the screen...
  4. How good is Blue Oval charging network for auto connect and payment?

    With the Tesla charger access coming soon, I'm curious to know from the users of the Blue Oval charging network, what your experience is like today. I know that if you have a failure or it doesn't pay correctly or start the charger it may not be Ford's fault, it could be a charger fault, but...
  5. Forum time issues?

    @TaxmanHog - @Administrator - I think I just saw this here and on the Mach E forum. Received an alert for a thread that says a thread was created 7 minutes ago. The thread shows it was created over a day ago. Maybe a small fluke?
  6. Powering a pool pump

    Has anyone powered their pool pump from the truck? I'm evaluating the circuits I would need in a sub or generator panel. I don't know that I can make it work with the generator panel. The pool is likely the only 240 device in the house I'd want powered. I know the 5 ton AC unit is out, I...
  7. Cybertruck Stereo - one of the best (unofficial comparison from Kyle)

    While there is much to be interested in with the Cybertruck - Kyle confirms what I suspected from Tesla. 15 speakers, 2 sub woofers. Just from a few minutes of listening, he declares it to be one of the best factory stereo's he has heard. He notes and mentions most every high end vehicle and...
  8. Another safety recall? 12/26/2023

    I used Informed Delivery from the USPS - so in this mornings email I have a "Safety Recall" from Ford that will be delivered today. Did anyone else get this in the last few days of mail delivery? Do we have another recall or is this an update on maybe the BECM SW update? That was supposed...
  9. Lost all charging access/info from iPhone app

    Sometime in the last 4 to 6 weeks I've lost all monitoring and access to charing information from my iPhone app. I wasn't sure where to start to fix it, but I likely started at the wrong place. I deleted the app and reinstalled it. I still have no charging information, but now I've also...
  10. Power-Up's now known simply as Software Update

    I just noticed that on the 6.13 release it is no longer labeled Power-Up, indeed simply noted as a "Software Update". Confirmed in that thread that indeed some changes are coming to at least the naming. It also has a number with two decimals in it - so a Major Release number, a version in that...
  11. Power-Up OTA 6.4.0 - Smart Changes: Refinements to improve connectivity

    @rugedraw was checking some things tonight and saw I had a SW download. It does look like it has failed install, but indeed 6.4 has downloaded to my truck. Hoping for an install tomorrow, if it will retry. There is a message at the top of it that says "Ford will make a new update available...
  12. A good laugh from Ford dealers

    This is laughable. Ford dealers say they don't trust Ford. Just like so many buyers don't trust the dealers - just tired of getting screwed and lousy excuses for service and stupid lies and deals. https://www.yahoo.com/autos/ford-dealers-dont-trust-ford-194949706.html
  13. Tesla selling Supercharger HW to 3rd parties

    This is how Tesla will continue to win and rule the charging world, whether it is their name on the front of the stall or not. $100 M worth, rebranded to BP, but Tesla under the covers. These will include MagicDock. https://electrek.co/2023/10/26/tesla-selling-superchargers-bp/?mibextid=Zxz2cZ
  14. SYNC 5 / Android OS finally something to show

    I haven't gone Googling to see what else is known, but a user on the sister sight has found and posted information about the next version of Sync which the Lightning was supposed to have had a year ago. https://www.f150gen14.com/forum/threads/sync-5-codename-phoenix.20079/post-388203
  15. Tailgate Teardown

    I had my light bar replaced today on the tailgate. I got some pictures and an interesting observation or two about the tailgate. First - a picture from the inside with the work surface removed (Blue tailgate)- the motor and control module are on the passenger side. All of the cutouts look...
  16. Charge Assist - overhyped or does it work?

    Seems the word is out on this today. First I've heard of it, I've not had it to test. What can you tell us about it? Does it work? Seems Farley had it on his drive a few weeks back.
  17. T3 reveal at Detroit?

    Big Ford Truck reveal next week at the Detroit auto show. They've noted the '24. What are the chances that we will get the T3? I know they don't want to cannibalize the Lightning, but they are going to need to start showing it soon, if it is worth having...
  18. Tesla v4 Supercharger - longer cable and attached screen

    I was watching Kyle's Model 3 refresh video and he covers the v4 SC which happened to also be there. A bit of insight on much longer cables and the screen or where it should be. I don't know if these have been reviewed or seen before, it was the first for me. Edit - not sure if that is a...
  19. NACS + J1772 Home Charger -- Tesla Universal Wall Connector launched

    Thanks @LUXMAN for the heads up (I also see I have an email from Tesla) but there is a new Universal WC announced today. $595 - has NACS and J1772 built in - works similar to the Magic Dock. This is a great value for Wifi connectivity, no need for a Tesla Tap which would cost a few hundred...
  20. Tough As Nails - Top Prize - Lightning Platinum

    The reality show Tough As Nails is sponsored by Ford. Top prize was some cash and is typically a half ton F150. This year it was a Lightning. They didn't focus on it much, but it was featured through the last part of the last episode.
