I have mine booked in for alignment checking at the local Rivian SC as during the last snow storm the truck slid sideways into a high pavement with quite the bang and knocked the alignment out. For comparison they have quoted $240.
Official response from Rivian (on Reddit) 11/21/22:
What's the status of the Adventure Bumper w/ winch? In the past, we mentioned that we were exploring an adventure bumper with integrated winch on R1T and R1S. We're constantly evaluating our product offerings, and we've made the decision to...
Back in October the SC told me that the winch is being redesigned due to issues they had encountered with weight, and running boards are in development.
Well… we all know how the winch turned out so I will see it when I believe it.
it works for me on 70/470/25. There was one time a few months ago where it stopped working which a full reset fixed things. I’d try a reset if you haven’t already and if that doesn’t fix things then definitely raise a service ticket.
I parked my truck at the airport on 12/17 with 81% SoC, not plugged in charging.
Within the first 16hrs it had already lost 5%. Realized I had left GearGuard on so turned it off.
Subsequent days after that was losing about 1-2% a day until the big -24F storm hit on 12/22 where it lost about...
Update on my SoC while still parked at the airport… after Thursday’s -24 temps my truck was left with 55% charge after a drop of 15%. But since Thursday (it’s now Sunday) it has slowly been increasing each day. Truck is now at 61% and not plugged in! If those figures are right that means the -24...
What’s your definition of cold?
My truck is parked at the airport where given temps of average 46 high 19 low it was losing 2-5% per day charge. But the bomb cyclone that’s just hit where temps hit a low of -24 it’s now losing 15% per day! Just hoping there’s going to be something left by the...
Yeah… everyone confirming my suspicions, winch2go not ideal by any means.
Is there such a thing as an off vehicle cradle that can hold a winch that would be placed in between the truck and mount point similar to the winch2go concept or is that just a disaster waiting to happen?
Yep it’s 4000 lb straight pull, but it’s instructions can say support 8000 lb in double line / 1 snatch block, so was wondering if it could support 2 snatch blocks to get it to 12000 lbs. it has a solid steel base plate with integrated latches so wonder if that could handle the stress.
One of the reasons I went with Rivian/nationwide was their promise of possible discounts at renewal based on driver+ usage. Well… my first 6 months is up and just got my renewal. I used driver+ at every possible opportunity. My premium increased $360/year. So much for the discount.
