  1. Camptop for R1S

    Even I didn’t think of it as a hearse until one day my wife pointed out that the glass height (distance from belt line to roof) wasn’t as tall as our erstwhile Range Rover. Now I can’t unsee it :) also I think from a pure aesthetic standpoint it would have been great if Rivian chopped the rear...
  2. Camptop for R1S

    Seconded. I would prefer if someone comes up with a composite or a carbon fiber one instead of Aluminum. Like Schmude has for the G-Wagons. IMHO it would give the R1S slightly better visual lines as well. The hearse like profile lines is the R1S is my only design gripe with the R1S. A camptop...
  3. 10,000 miles road trip - Los Angeles to Rhode Island and back.

    What an amazing read and a journey worthy of the awesome vehicles that Rivians are. The photos are quite stunning as well. Definitely do reach out to Rivian PR or your guide to share this story. I am only 3 weeks in and my biggest pet peeves is the charge curve. but I have a 2000 mile trip...
  4. R1S Perf DM Max Pack 21" Wheels, 1st Week Impressions..<Long!>

    Nope. Not in the slightest. I am very happy with my choice. Even with the stupidly priced Max pack. The Enduro motors are in house designed and built by Rivian. It’s a better design and lighter overall. I have 21” wheels so really can’t see and truly don’t care for the yellow calipers and...
  5. R1S Perf DM Max Pack 21" Wheels, 1st Week Impressions..<Long!>

    It drives very well. No complaints or concerns whatsoever. It primarily runs as a FWD. with rear motors coming in only when you need the acceleration. I drove a quad for the test drive and if my memory serves me well the dual is quieter than the quad. Less gear/ motor whine. I had the early...
  6. Scheduled charging with the Grizzl-E Smart charger

    Followup update for anyone reading this thread later. Just removing the Grizzl-E charger from my wifi network did not work. Per the advice above I disconnected and opened up the charger and dropped the first dip switch down. The config now was 1-down, 2-up, 3-up, 4-down. The charger now works...
  7. Scheduled charging with the Grizzl-E Smart charger

    no I removed it from my network via the app and my router. I’ll this tonight if it doesn’t work then I’ll open it up tomm and see what dipswitches need changing.
  8. Scheduled charging with the Grizzl-E Smart charger

    Thanks @supervlover I have deleted the Grizzl E from the Wi-Fi. Let me see if it works tonight and post back. Unfortunately I purchased it based on some YouTube reviews (and a good price) and can’t return anymore.
  9. Scheduled charging with the Grizzl-E Smart charger

    Hi Everyone, Need some help trouble shooting my home charging setup. I have a Grizzl-E 40A Smart charger at home. When I connect it to the Rivian and ask to charge. It works perfectly fine. However, if I schedule a charge either via the Grizzle-E app or via the Rivian itself, it wont start at...
  10. R1S Perf DM Max Pack 21" Wheels, 1st Week Impressions..<Long!>

    oh wow!! Ok that’s significant. How do you find these metrics? Is there a menu that I’m missing or electrafi or something else?
  11. R1S Perf DM Max Pack 21" Wheels, 1st Week Impressions..<Long!>

    I don’t fully recall but it was in temperature driven auto and I think the HVAC was blowing heat
  12. R1S Perf DM Max Pack 21" Wheels, 1st Week Impressions..<Long!>

    True..it smarts that I had to pay $3-4K more for the max pack..I wish there was something to show for it..range is still an open question. The heat pump would have easened the pain. Wonder if it can be added later by Rivian as a retrofix
  13. R1S Perf DM Max Pack 21" Wheels, 1st Week Impressions..<Long!>

    I did drive about 5-10 miles to heat up the battery before charging but probably wasnt enough. I will start logging battery temps when I do a DC fast charge. I might be wrong but I think ElectraFi also logs this..need to check. Is there an optimal battery temp for charging? Also, !! on the HVAC...
  14. R1S Perf DM Max Pack 21" Wheels, 1st Week Impressions..<Long!>

    Agreed @DuoRivians .. I am definitely not expecting EPA numbers but I was thinking more like 10% less so about ~360mile range which should translate to 2.54 mi/ kWh on a 142 kW effective battery size. External temp was about 60-65 deg F. So pretty optimal conditions I'd think. Again early days...
  15. R1S Perf DM Max Pack 21" Wheels, 1st Week Impressions..<Long!>

    I just installed it. I am going out for a drive tonight to see what the updates are.
  16. R1S Perf DM Max Pack 21" Wheels, 1st Week Impressions..<Long!>

    Hi Everyone, New R1S owner here. Thank you for the enthusiastic welcome and all the inputs. Its been 5-6 days since pickup and I have driven it for about 500 miles, so I am posting my first set of thoughts on the R1S. I wanted to take some time and be deliberate with my thoughts. Would love...
  17. Checklists / Delivery

    I just picked mine up last week on the day before TG. Dont sweat going through the checklist with a fine toothed comb while at the delivery center. You cant. Go over the big stuff and then take the weekend to go through the checklist. Thats what I did. Found some very small niggles and raised...
  18. New R1S Owner

    Of course. Here you go..I also used some points from the Tesla delivery checklist. I also owe thanks to everyone for the warm welcome and helpful advice. I started writing a long post on Sunday after 4 days of ownership and my early thoughts. Still havent finished with it as I am learning new...
  19. New R1S Owner

    I don’t fully follow your response but I am guessing you are implying it might be because there are fewer dual motor Rivians sold than Quads. if that’s the argument I think that’s fair. But other objective analyses by people from both in this forum and Out of Spec etc. also seem to articulate...
  20. New R1S Owner

    Hi Everyone, Want to introduce myself and share my experiences as I embark on my first electric car and Rivian journey. Literally drafting this as I am leaving to go pickup my R1S in the next 2 hours. My R1S spec: Perf Dual Motor, 21" Road Wheels and Max Pack. Forest Green exterior and Ocean +...
