hoe do you charge at an RV site? You check in for 24 hours, charge, and then check out? How does this work?I check the status of the next charger as I leave the charger I am using. I also look for other chargers in the area where the dead one is even if I have to pay for it. . In Columbus, TX there are no other options. So I charged to 100% while at the Katy Mills charger and then I had enough range to get to San Antonio.
I also have my home charger with me so a 50 amp RV site will work and campgrounds are everywhere.
You are a brave soul. I wouldn’t venture out in 110F in an EV. Get plenty of water with you. 110F is no joke.I guess 3 days of regrouping is enough. As I posted before I have made the first 2,170 miles of this trip solo, but today I'm leaving Lake Havasu City, AZ for Las Vegas, NV to pick up my better half at the airport. She will be with me for the rest of this trip. And Las Vegas is forecast to only hit 107F today. Lake Havasu City was 107F yesterday and forecast to hit 109F today. I did get to see London Bridge in the am two days ago before it got too hot. My charging stops today will be Needles, CA and then again in Las Vegas close to the airport. I won't really need that charge, but I might as well while waiting for the plane arrival. I was going to charge here in Havasu on the destination charger last evening, but a Tesla has had the charger hogged all night. It stopped charging several hours ago, but did he get up and unplug? We know the answer to that. Oh well, I have enough charge to get to Needles so I really don't need it anyway. Besides, I'm on vacation and retired. Who's in a hurry?
I know it works great as long as it works. The problem is if it doesn’t work anymore, surviving in a 110F heat is no joke. I would still bring plenty of water and a cooler filled with ice just in case.I have been driving around the local area here for the past several days in 105-107F temps. The car does great, the a/c works perfectly and I do have the glass roof. Keeping the shade closed works great. I am glad I'm leaving here before Saturday when the forecast is for 116F.
Alabamian people can’t easily survive in 65F. Be careful and take care of yourself.Well all good and HOT things come to an end. It is currently 107F here and we are leaving Las Vegas first thing in the morning for points north where tomorrow's high is forecast to be 65F. I'll have to break out my woolies or risk freezing. Now what is that charging curve for lower temps again? How quickly we forget.
I'll post more tomorrow after we get a few hundred miles north. Yellowstone area here we come.
My wife caught COVID three weeks ago being fully vaccinated and double boosted (developed symptoms 2 days after the fourth shot). Took her 12 days no longer to test positive. The first few days she stayed in bed. Started developing pneumonia on day 2 of symptoms. Said it felt like an elephant was sitting on her chest. I was preparing to take her to the doctor, but then the pneumonia went away on its own. She was taking zinc, mucinex, and Emergen-C (all self prescribed). Day 4 she started feeling better. I never got it from her. I am also double-vaccinated and double-boosted. With all four vaccine shots, Omicron shouldn’t be too serious, but you may be stuck in this hotel for 3-4 more days. My wife was self-isolating in a bedroom, but it’s hard to do it in a hotel, so wear a mask.Not so happy update. We arrived in Grand Junction, CO yesterday with the better half not feeling so good. This morning she was worse, so of to the ER. Yep, Covid and she has had both of the vaccine shots. She is loaded up on medication right now and we are staying here another night. We will see what tomorrow holds. I don't feel so hot either, but a lot better than she does. We brought 4 Covid tests with us and she tested positive early this morning so that is the reason for the ER visit.
I have had both of the original Covid shots and also both boosters, the last one on 5-20. The medication she is on makes you sleepy, so I can't afford that since we need to get on the road. Again, see what tomorrow holds. At least we are at a nice spot.
I don’t see a problem here. Worst case scenario, turn around and roll down the mountain, gaining range.The mountain passes seem like the most challenging part to an EV. That's where you can get frightened because of the range disappearing quickly, but you seem to have mastered it!
