    Anyone Decide Not to Install PowerShare?

    I got a quote from an electrician today to install the PowerShare Gateway and UWC in the amount of $3165. It's a relatively easy whole house backup installation with everything installed on the exterior of the house. I'm debating whether to proceed with the installation or not. There reasons...

    Not able to charge CT from 120Vac generator

    I can't charge my Cybertruck from the 30A TT-30 outlet on my 120Vac generator (Westinghouse iGen4500DF). I'm able to do so on my Model Y with the same setup. I use a TT-30 to 14-50 adapter with my Tesla Mobile Charger. Everything looks good until it starts pulling amps and quickly stops...

    Vault vent for sleeping

    I'm going off-roading in the Tonto National Forest next week with three overnight camping stays planned. Since flies and mosquitoes are likely to be a problem with water nearby (Roosevelt and Apache lakes), I needed a way to ventilate the vault when sleeping to keep the CO2 level down. I made...

    Took my Cybertruck on Sedona's Outlaw Trail for Offroading and Camping -- Photos & Lessons Learned

    It's classified "Moderate", but for a newbie off-roader like me it felt worse. The 11.2 mile loop included some steep rocky sections that put me to the test. The recent rains left muddy water filled holes all along the trail. Almost every vehicle on the trail was a UTV (Razors). Needless to...

    My Starlink Antenna Custom Mount With Suction Cups

    I have the original Starlink Dishy McFlatface (the round one) that I want to use to connect to the internet in the back country. I have a Starlink Mobile subscription that I will 'Unpause' for 30 days when I go off road. It costs $150/month, but I can pause it when I don't need it. I modified...

    Vault Bed Heat Pump Build (Heating & Cooling) 🥵🥶

    Instead removing the rear window of my Cybertruck, and relying on cabin HVAC Camp Mode to heat/cool the vault for sleeping, I designed and built separate means of heating and cooling the vault using a BougeRV 2900 BTU heat pump resting on a Lexan panel inserted in the CT's tonneau cover tracks...

    Cleaning inside of windshield -- using window cleaning mop with long handle

    Cleaning the inside of the CT's windshield can be a challenge being as deeply recessed as it is. I improvised by wrapping a couple of micro fiber cloths around a window cleaning mop on a longish handle, held on by a couple of sprint clips. I spray Windex on the cloth and go to work. Any other...

    Cybertruck bed mattress solution - EXPED 72"x25.6"x3" air mattresses + BougeRV 2900 BTU heat pump

    I spent some time looking for an air mattress that fits the CT's bed which is 73" long and 51" wide. I didn't find anything. Luno makes a good air mattress for Tesla vehicles, but not for the Cybertruck as yet. Their 6 foot long truck bed mattress has wheel well cut outs which I didn't like...

    High Battery Vampire Drain

    I've notice that the battery charge on my CT is dropping a lot faster than I experience on my Model Y. Last night I charged to 50% finishing at midnight before going to bed. At 6 AM this morning the SOC was down to 48%, a loss of 1/3 % per hour or approx 0.4 kWh/hour. Sentry Mode is off, as is...

    Why Are You Buying a Cybertruck?

    I've been asked why I bought a Cybertruck. I have a Tesla Model Y as a daily driver with FSD, the Cybertruck barely fits in my garage, and there are other options for the utility of a pickup. It's a reasonable question. I plan to use my CT as an adventure vehicle to experience America's off...

    Removing / venting rear window to cool/heat vault for DIY camp mode?

    I want to remove the rear window on my Cybertruck so that there's a way to cool the vault from the cabin HVAC (Camping Mode). It would also provide a pass-through from the vault to the cabin that would be useful when sleeping in the vault. I examined the way Tesla mounted the glass panel and...

    Painting your Cybertruck

    This sounds like heresy, but is anyone planning to paint their Cybertruck? I'm not talking about wrapping with vinyl or PPF, but with good old fashioned primer and acrylic overcoats. Granted, it's an almost permanent process, so not to be undertaken lightly, but there are advantages to...
