  1. Things I forgot to bring on towing road trip

    you generally only have TWO choices at campgrounds, with 'Full Hookups', as they are referred to in the RVing and Camping worlds: -50amp 240v is exactly the same as your home's NEMA 14-50 female outlet, and the Ford EVSE's NEMA 14-50 male plug, for a Level 2 charge. -30amp 120v campground...
  2. V4 with MAGIC DOCK... brand new installation near ORLANDO

    referring to V4 new installation N Orlando at WaWa: not sure. Yesterday they were waiting on the final electrical inspection, but I will check again in a few days... as to the install, one thing I noticed: no barriers or bollards. since these units sit at the 'road facing' curbside of the...
  3. V4 with MAGIC DOCK... brand new installation near ORLANDO

    I think the design with these new V4's is that the cable is long enough to satisfy any vehicle, whether backing in for the driver back, like Teslas, or backing in with our KIA EV9, on the PASSENGER back, or whether pulling in forward with our LIGHTNING - should reach with no issues. and...
  4. Truck died 5 miles from home

    we even recently got our fourth Son married, bringing in another Daughter-in-law, traveling a total of 1,200 miles over several days, including a day off for the wedding... .... no issues... Mountains, Interstates, etc. managing your expectations, and your driving habits, are the only way to...
  5. V4 with MAGIC DOCK... brand new installation near ORLANDO

    yes, all V4's have a much longer cable, thicker, too... there are several videos on this subject. This will no longer be an issue with us 'other' CCS vehicles with charge ports in various places...
  6. Truck died 5 miles from home

    the national Minimum Interstate speed limit is 40. unless you are doing something else 'wrong', no sheriff or policy or state trooper would give you a second glance... they are already going too fast, themselves.
  7. Truck died 5 miles from home

    the jist of the original post was the mi/kwh along his travels: but, your battery pack does not CARE what the speed limit is, if you think that you 'have' to drive the speed limit - after all, it's a LIMIT, not the MINIMUM. You'll have these issues in ANY ev if you continue to do the same...
  8. V4 with MAGIC DOCK... brand new installation near ORLANDO

    WaWa station: corner of JOHN YOUNGS Parkway and EDGWATER Drive, north ORLANDO
  9. Truck died 5 miles from home

    I think the sign that you are only getting 1.7mi/kWh should tell you something, when others of us are getting 2.2-2.5 or even better... if you are driving with a led foot, and you 'wait' until you are extremely low in battery power before you change your methods, you might be surprised...
  10. Ford CEO Jim Farley on EVs, NACS Adapter, New Detroit HQ @ Michigan Central Station -- Yahoo Finance Interview 6/4/24

    The whole perspective that anyone who purchased a LIGHTNING, or any EV for that matter, then decided that it 'wasn't for them', and for whatever good reason they give, is simply LIFE - it's not any knock on EVs, it's not any knock on FORD, it's not any knock on the LIGHTNING or any other EV -...
  11. Wireless Phone Charging Pad

    we added simple off-the-shelf USB C Wireless Charger stands to both our EV9 and LIGHTNING since the 'included' units are so problematic(my PRO came without one, but this works very well...)... and we can move, mount, or place them anywhere that makes sense for our needs. The KIA's charger pad...
  12. 195kw Charging Speed

    I agree with all those sentiments... it's a GREAT battery-powered THREE-row seating SUV that is smooth, fast, easy, and comfortable... I've actually thought the 'frunk' space with our LIGHT version is massive for under the hood, and while not comparable to the space in the LIGHTNING, of course...
  13. Did you buy an extended warranty?

    As an insurance agent, agency owner, and car/truck owner now for over 40 years, I not only would never have a need for an 'extended warranty', since the warranty for most vehicles now far exceeds the concern in worrying about 'repairs' afterwards, but the simple fact that most of us NEVER keep a...
  14. Powering critical loads with my Lightning > lightning

    'Critcal' Loads: TV Ice Maker Microwave Air Conditioning(of course!) etc... yes, agreed. we are spoiled. But, we appreciate it : )
  15. 195kw Charging Speed

    I don't know what 'stupid' means, as we just traveled 900 miles in ours, over several days(600 miles just yesterday), with no issues... two stops. Yes, our 'bladders' needed to stop more often - oh well... We LOVE it! My Lightning is jealous. It gets the EXACT same miles per fill-up as the...
  16. 195kw Charging Speed

    I've seen 168kw or so, and my wife's newer Kia EV9 just today ramped up to 250kw... both at EA stations, as few others for CCS reach the EA 350kw capacity...
  17. Nothing Has Changed In 7 Years

    one of the reasons that Tesla Superchargers don't tend to have the same type of issues is that they also require EVERY Tesla that has ever been built, sans the CyberTruck, to BACK IN EXACTLY THE SAME AS EVERY OTHER TESLA ... there is no 'wondering' if you'll fit correctly in the space and be...
  18. Nothing Has Changed In 7 Years

    similar story at Target GAINSVILLE FL Electrify America NEW units, but only TWO actually 'working'... I'm watching the activity for avialable charger stations as I am drawing closer to the exit on I75 North... I have the app to 'alert' me by text if someone disconnects, since all currently...
  19. Is adjusting amp draw in truck now possible?

    at the moment, the LIGHTNING has no process to 'lower' or 'change' the AMPERAGE while charging.... unfortunately, though that would be a nice bonus, since other manufacturer EVs, like the BOLT, have that option: 8 amps, 12amps, etc. Maybe this is something an over-the-air update could...
