Weekend trips and charging
I just reserved an X. But I have some questions as to what Advice Tesla gives to EV customers about charging on trips. For instance, if I go to the coast for a long weekend, should I ask the hotel if I can charge up at night? Do I bring and extension cord? Do I offer some money for the electricity? Or if I drive 2 hours to visit family, do I run an extension cord outside their house to the curb to charge at night? Is it ok to do this in the rain?
Or should I just simply do a search for fast chargers and stop along the freeway for an hour? I mean, it just seems that the charging issue must be addressed, our minds should be put at ease with these sorts of questions.
