    Unloading cargo with Camp Mode inspires Rear Tilt Mode idea

    So I bought a new grill today, but when I got it home the tailgate was way too high for my fairly short ramps. Realizing I was on a slope, I put the truck into Camp Mode. This raised the front of the truck and the lever action lowered the rear to the point that my ramps were a viable option. So...

    Driver Profiles trying to murder me.

    After a couple months of ownership, I finally added my wife to the R1T and created a driver profile for her. Now, anytime her phone gets near the truck it just switches to her driver profile. She’s 5’4” and I’m 6’2” so the damn seat is basically trying to kill me at this point. I get it, my...

    Looking for home solar advice

    Good Morning everyone, I've started shopping solar panels for my home. I looked into SunRun but they told me I could only get 10 panels on my home. I think they half-assed their assessment because they just used a satellite photo of my roof to determine how many they could fit. There are other...

    Fire Extinguisher

    Since I’m going to be taking my R1T camping, I make it a point to have a fire extinguisher. For my Jeep, I’ve had two of these Elements extinguishers. I can see that it’s rated for electrical, but will that suffice for the R1T. Obviously, I’m not looking to extinguish a battery fire. This is...

    Question for iKamper owners.

    I have an iKamper xCover and both the 1st and 2nd gen mounting brackets. Which one do y’all feel is best for mounting the tent to the cargo crossbars? I’m a little concerned the gen 2 brackets might not have the best fit. I’m going to try them out this afternoon but wanted to see if anyone has...

    Am I doing something wrong?

    So I’m sitting here at an Electrify America charger. It started of charging at 150kW but quickly dropped to 37-39kW. This is the 2nd time I’ve done this. A different charger at the same location gave me a similar charge rate. Is there anything i can do to help the situation?

    Out of Spec Reviews: Lightning and R1T tow the Rocky Mountains..

    Nothing really surprising. The two biggest take aways are that Electrify America continues to suck monkey nuts and Rivian's charging is very much improved after the software update.

    Configurator down?

    Anyone else having this issue? I click the Update Configuration button to potentially change my config and I find this page. Price shows but nothing else. It’s the same for Firefox and Safari on iPadOS 16 beta 2. Obviously that could be the beta having problems so I thought I’d check in here.

    Random Thoughts: A quick and easy way for Rivian to save on existing orders.

    Now that last week’s pricing disaster is over, I found myself thinking about various things and realized that there was a fairly easy way that Rivian could save some cash on many of the existing orders. All they would need to do is let pre-March 1st order holders opt out of getting the tonneau...
