I have seen many things posted in this thread that would have gotten any other thread shut down in a second so if he hasn't shut it down by now then it is unlikely that he ever will. And to be honest, this kind of disproportional treatment is one of the reasons why I stopped posting in this forum as much as I used to.

I don't think those are for semi's. If they were, then it would be very hard for them to get in with a 53" trailer.

Hey Sam. Those are not for the Semi. Those are for Teslas pulling RV's (or boats, or trailers or whatever), Tesla has had a lot of requests to start building more trailer friendly stalls at their V3 Supercharger sites. Many only have a one or two pull in nose first trailer charge sites. And some have none at all, especially the old V2 sites. There are a ton of us hauling RV's with model Y's and X's and even some 3's and S's although the 3's and S's don't have factory trailer tow packages. And this is what we have to do at many of the older sites.

And of course if the site is busy we have to disconnect the trailer, park it, block it etc. I's not a big job. maybe 3 minutes, (no weight distribution hitch to disconnect or anything) but its still a pain. Its only happened to us once so far but we are coming into the summer months so it's going to be more busy.

Anyway, here is a pic of the first Mega charger used for Tesla Semis. This is the test site at the factory. There are now two of these out there. Obviously under construction.

Cheers.

@Reisender - Whichever it is, it will all be good news for me.

Although we are thinking of getting a truck camper for F150 or, if Lance do one for Cybertruck. We experience so many stops and parking limitations with a trailer.


As for the semis, my son-in-law is planning to go into trucking with a goal of buying (several) Tesla semis.

Truck campers are a great solution for some. We’ll probably stay with the trailer and model Y for a few years. But who knows. Our name is still on a Cybertruck. Time will tell. If we get a Cybertruck I can turn my garage into a gym, because a cyber truck sure as hell ain’t gonna fit. [emoticon].
