I'm all the way across the Thumb from you but have charged in Port Austin and the Saginaw RAN while adventuring past you ;)

There is a RAN in Mackinaw City that should get you to Munising, but there is only a level 2 charger there. The nearest level 3 is in Marquette. I use a better route planner (abetterrouteplanner.com and) plugshare.com for trips. Plugshare will give a user reviews of charging stations

Yup, been to Munising from Bay City a couple times now. Really no issues as long as you plan. Also did a trip from Houghton and back to Munising without issue.

I think I saw one comment in here talking about the Grand Rapids SC opening in Nov, but I can confirm that the Grand Rapids SC is open for appointments. Woke up to the "12V Battery Needs Service" message and they've already booked me there for Friday.

They opened up on Jan 8th and they're still working on getting fully staffed. Guest area isn't that big, seating for less than 10 people. There is a break room for the employees that's open to guests, a small conference room, mens/womens bathrooms, and a lactation room (quite large).

Excellent news for the West side of the state!

hey CJ, just drove through garden city last week to visit exotic cravings. The smoke made everything look so dystopian down that way

Happy Holidays to all!
Hey Fellow Michiganster Rivian Owners! I live in the Lansing Area and picked up my R1S on 6/30. Do any of you have 22" Rims? I'm dealing with a bit of wander (car slightly wanders back and forth on its own with the wheel straight) on highways, especially on newer concrete highways with rain grooves (like 127 South for about 10 miles before you hit Jackson) and want to see if any of you have also experienced that.

You don't happen to have an El Cap R1S, do you?

The grooved highways are the worst. I get the drift on every vehicle I have driven on them. The Rivian seems to be doing the best of them, but I hate driving on those sections of road.

Yes this happens on groove highways, but became less pronounced over time. Got my RC R1S 5/31 and have 6,700 miles

Has anyone noticed the seat coolers don’t work well if air is also on higher?

I think it has more to do with the mix of vents that are open in my experience but I'll do some tests on my way to work this morning :)
timf
The seat coolers are dependent on the temperature in the cabin. They don't generate cool air on their own, but rather move existing air around. When the air is on high, it is likely because the cabin is hot and it's trying to cool it down quickly, so the seat coolers just blow the warm cabin air through the seats with minimal effect. Once the cabin is down to temperature, the seat cooling effect becomes much more noticeable.

Also make sure the rear floor vents are on. That will also make a difference.

RAN in Mackinaw City is still free.

That's hopeful for other locations at least. I figured they would scrub the magic doc program now that they are making adapters next year. Still bummed I missed both of those as t Labor Day, nearly got booted staying overnight in the ferry day use lot.
timf
@SSteveEV I'd rather see the magic dock at every Supercharger than have to carry around an adapter I rarely use. Perhaps this is all they mean by making adapters available - that all Superchargers will be retrofit by the end of 2024.

@timf I'd be really happy with that too but given that they did it company by company with secret contracts I don't think that's the plan or they would never have had to limit it by company

🚗 **Rivian 21-Inch Tire Swap Opportunity!** 🚗

Calling all fellow Rivian owners,

I've got a set of practically new 21-inch tires that have only seen 1000 miles, and I'm looking to swap them for either 22-inch or 20-inch tires. Unfortunately, the 21-inch size wasn't what I initially had in mind during my Rivian's delivery and was not a great help from my guide.

If you're in the opposite situation and have been hoping to switch to 21-inch tires, let's chat! I'd love to discuss the possibility of a tire swap that benefits both of us.

Don't hesitate to get in touch if you're interested or have any questions. Let's keep our Rivians riding in style! ğŸžğŸ”Œ #RivianTireSwap #[Banned Site] #TireUpgrade

Sorry but I'm happy with my 20s. What we may all need on the near future is a set of 21s to share for service visits to have them program as 21s so our speedometer is correct when we swap to non scorpion/OEM 20" tires.

Good luck with your swap!

I want a help, I installed the L2 Rivian charger today but keep getting vehicle error and not able to charge. Does anyone has l2 Rivian charger which I can test with? Want to make sure if it’s charger issues or not.

Anyone have any interest in in-person meetups. Could be Social or ORV events.

Has anyone explored any of the 72" ORV routes in the Mitt? I know we are 82" wide but... most of the trucks are a bit over 72" anyways. Looking at Tin Cup Springs and Indian Gardens. Thanks!

Headed into the UP to go camping for a week in the porkies. Anything I should be prepared taking the R1S? Already purchased the TT-30 adapter.

Thanks,

Moving next month from Metro Detroit to Kalamazoo. Sure hope they hurry up and open the Grand Rapids service shop, as my Mar'22 R1T has needed/still needs fixes on the little stuff. Overall, love the truck and so glad to get rid of the Tesla Model 3 that felt too detached from the road and fragile.

@NoICE maybe a little early but welcome to Kalamazoo! In the past year and a half, I've seen 3 R1Ts and 1 R1S in the area. I've heard there are quite a few in Richland but I'm never in that area.
