Model S Pickup Day – First Day Rest…

So, we’ve plugged in at 110V running at 12A. That’s estimated to be a 3 miles per hour of charge… Figure to get approx. 36 miles back.

So, I contacted the Hilton Sonoma Valley a few weeks before showing up and got instructions on where I can plug in at 110V depending on where in the property my room was.




Had to use a SHORT extension cord because the plug was installed upside down. The MC would not connect otherwise.


Time to sleep.
