    Why exactly is it so cumbersome to use the multitude of charging networks?

    Could be. But once it dropped to 173 it added a message that it was limited by the charger, so that would seem to imply it was trying/willing to get more.

    Why exactly is it so cumbersome to use the multitude of charging networks?

    I did my first DCFC yesterday. I only did it to ensure my new truck didn't have any issues with DCFC like a few random unlucky owners had before I went on a long trip. There is a very new EVgo station at a Sheetz with 350kW chargers. Couldn't connect through the Rivian app. I had...

    Spare Tire / Reinforced Underbody

    Consider changing out your configuration from a max pack to a large pack. We don't know the date of your preorder, but that could result in your getting your configured vehicle this year. And you keep your configuration with the spare. Even if your vehicle then ships without the spare, you...

    Anyone trying Spotify?

    Spotify (free version) worked fine for my first several trips. Then yesterday had my go to playlist on and it randomly just jumped to pause in another song I have never heard of. The entire library was blank and unresponsive. Then I thought I would just stream it from my phone, but the...

    Switching from Max Pack to Large Pack, how does it change delivery window?

    You can see how things went from me in my signature. But I think making the change prior to the June 11th update was part of why I got a truck. They were in the middle of a mass update of delivery windows and doing something active with the system. It worked for me. The main reason for...

    Update: Rivian All-Weather Floor Mats begin delivery October 2022, with logo changed to black

    The apology letter for the March 1st price increase is nothing compared to the fallout and letter RJ is going to have to send for creating this epic first world problem.

    Time from VehicleID in API response to 8-steps?

    The VIN appears right at the top of your account page. Funny you mentioned the electrician. I had been waiting on a callback from 2 different electricians. When I found out Friday afternoon I was taking delivery the following Tuesday, I called another one that actually had a real webpage...

    Time from VehicleID in API response to 8-steps?

    I got my email to confirm my configuration on a Sunday morning. That afternoon a vehicle ID showed up and my home page on my account had an actual VIN. The 8 steps also opened up either the same day or the next day. My guide told me he thought it would be best case two weeks. On Friday...

    Help me narrow down my portable charger choices?

    Thanks. That's about what I anticipated. The 32A EVSE that comes with the truck gave me around 14mi/hr. So around 25% more Amps giving around 21.5% faster charging sounds about right. Will save about 1 hour of charge time for every 4-5 hours of charging is another way to look at it...

    Help me narrow down my portable charger choices?

    @jwardell and @CommodoreAmiga , I really appreciate both of you taking the time to reply. I'm seriously considering going with the Tesla Mobile Connector. The first of two things holding me back is that it is not in stock. All I can do is request to receive an email when it is. I just...

    Not liking one pedal driving

    This thread has been in my head while I waited for my truck. My first EV so I was curious to see how it felt for me and how long it took to adapt. The adapting curve was seconds, probably because it was expected. I didn't read every reply so don't know if it's been said, but I told my...

    What Will Be The First Song You Play In Your New Rivian?

    My first song plans were spoiled by being too cheap to pay for Spotify. On my computer I can play any of my playlists in order. I forgot that on a phone or any other app, including Rivian's, it will only play them in random shuffle in the free version. My plans for a sarcastic but great...

    Help me narrow down my portable charger choices?

    Thanks. I wonder if the problem with 40A was the TeslaTap MINI 40A and not the Teslatap 40A. The site for the MINI 40A states "We have found that many customers have been using our 40A version on newer EVs creating an unsafe condition". If I go with a TeslaTap MINI 60A and the Tesla...

    Help me narrow down my portable charger choices?

    Thanks for all the input. From what I see, the Tesla tap mini is the wrong choice based on the link above. It said it was discontinued because it wasn't intended for this use, but did give the link to the what they said was the correct product that appears to accomplish the same thing, called...

    What is the feature that people respond to when they approach

    Those were all of my ass-u-m(e)ptions as well, but as like many other things, we get different input from different Rivian sources. One of them that said it was not recommended also pointed out it will be your truck and you can do what you want. Back when I had the max pack ordered, I figured...

    Help me narrow down my portable charger choices?

    I will be charging my truck at two locations about 200 miles apart, home and a camp. I want to get a portable 40A charger to use in both locations. I'll admit my first priority is lowest price, but that doesn't mean cheap. I think I have narrowed it down to 4 choices listed below with best...

    Just wired up a charger outlet, Rivian charger worth it?

    Like @nc10 said, make sure you understand what breakers are required for any given current. The maximum amps on the breaker should be 80% (or the breaker should be 1.25x the amps, same result, whichever math you prefer.) If you have a 40A breaker, right now you are limited to using the cord...

    What is the feature that people respond to when they approach

    That's what I was hoping too, but all of the Rivian employees I have talked to specifically told me not to use the frunk as a cooler. When I got my truck Tuesday, I noticed the drain was a passive pressure valve. Could have sworn it was a removable plug when I looked at a service center a...

    Rivian Service Centers / Retail Locations List / Other Facilities (Pics & Updates)

    Been a while since I looked at this string. Surprised me that the Cleveland location hasn't been added yet. They delivered my truck Tuesday. 9601 Granger Rd, Cleveland OH 44125. He confirmed they are the SC for all of western PA, western NY, and some of WV as well as pretty much all of OH.

    Comparing your R1T to your previous truck (1500 Limited in my case)

    My one and only previous truck was a beater white Ford Ranger. Bought it while stationed out of the country. I think it was a 97 or 98. The perfect vehicle for my 1 mile ride to work, and to the beach for shore dives every weekend. I'm sure the bed was smaller than the Rivian, but fit...
