Sad news

From our club member, Julia Moravcsik:

I have some sad news to share. David's wife called to say that David [McNeil] passed away on Monday.

I will post news of his passing on Facebook and create a memorial edition of the newsletter. I would also like to compile pictures, stories, and memories to give to his wife and to put in the newsletter. You all have known him even longer than I have, so any that you could share would be appreciated.

If you have any other ideas for ways to remember David, let me know. 

This is very sad. I feel like David and his personality went a long way in making the DEVC the way it is. He will be greatly missed.

How to get to your Model S vitals

If you ever would like to perform basic maintenance on your older Tesla Model S (nosecone), here's a video that shows how to remove the frunk cavity storage area and get to things like the brake reservoir and coolant tanks.

See here: .

Is solar a scam?

 I very much respect Ben Sullins' data analysis on EVs, solar, battery store information and he's just released a full-year review of having an 8 kW solar system on his roof, it's quite interesting.

See it here: .

Level 1 charging in cold weather

I found a video made by a Tesla owner in Canada. He wanted to see if you can survive parked outside in the winter and only have access to a Level 1 charger (house current). It was very interesting to see his results: .
