Happy Super Bowl Sunday everyone!

Having read all the posts about vampire drains, etc and concerned that I would return from a 2 week vacation to an immobile hunk-o-junk I decided to test the theory that I could in fact just park the car (outside/no trickle charge), put it in storage mode and 2 weeks later it would be fine. Success! Yes, naysayers; I am on the beautiful California Central Coast where the weather only fluctuated between 30 - 70 degrees during "the test" BUT, this test did not go for just two weeks... between trade shows that had me out of town, my determination to leave the car alone for the couple of days I was home here and there and a lovely case of Covid, this test actually went on for 31 days. I finally gave in this morning because I really want to drive the rocket again and it's just fine! Parked at 88% and today it sits at 68%. Not too shabby for such a long nap!

That is all.... enjoy your Taylor Swift, silly commercial and oh, yeah...football infused afternoon!

My name is Mike, and I have a (car) problem
That’s great! I’m still seeing a little less than 1%, but haven’t done an airport-abandonment (aka ”long-term parking”) in a couple of updates.

Good information, thanks. I’m away from mine for 7 weeks but I could leave it plugged in. I seem to lose ~1%/day but I left it in normal mode @50% and it comes back up to that every couple of days.

Mine will sleep for days as long as Bluetooth is disabled on my phone. No paak and no gear guard. Last week was best week ever…I saw only 5 miles of range had to be added back to truck all week.

@SLORIV i parked mine for 20 days, no storage mode, not plugged, Brooklyn streets, and had about 25% drain during that period. That is with Gear Guard on and likely hundreds of videos captured.

Glad you are happy with the results but 20% isn’t that good IMO. For reference I left my Ioniq 5 at 56% for 2 weeks and set a schedule to charge it to 50% during off peak hours. It never needed a charge and in fact still at 53% remaining

Agreed. This result is reasonable for today's Rivians but it's not great. My results with an ID.4 are in line with what you quoted for your Ioniq 5. Usually loses about 1-2% for a week when sitting idle in the garage.

I am hopeful that the new network architecture Rivian is kicking off later this year will result in substantially less drain for R1s. As it stands, I add about 1.75kWh / day to the cost of running this truck. It's not the end of the world, but its energy that shouldn't be wasted - especially given the mission and values of the company.

Do you have to turn off scheduled charge for it to stay charged?

We have a solar system that generates more than we use to heat and cool our house, so we never use the scheduled charging feature. I just have it plugged in with no schedule. I expect that if we used the scheduler our top-off charging would only happen when the scheduler permits.

Yikes!!!!! 20%?! Wife's Model Y has been at the airport in cold Oregon for 3 weeks now only losing 2%... & That is with me checking in on it.

My R1 has not sat long enough for any tests... I am in it almost every day. That said it is usually at the same level I left it at each day when I get in it (I don't leave it plugged in down here).

Sure seems like you have an issue with something not shutting down...

Yo Mister negativity RIP… the OP went for a full month and was down 20%. Maybe you could try that in your Rivian and see how that works for you instead of comparing it to your wife’s car which may or may not have half of the power consuming features available or enabled.

Dude... Really lol? 20% in 30 days is ok with you?

Gotta be something wrong with the vehicle.

For reference, I have left Tesla, Chevy, Cadillac & Ford EVs shut down & idle for months at a time with single digit loses. Defending damn near 1% a day for a hibernating vehicle is insanity.

It's consistent with the give-or-take 1% per day drain reported by many Rivian owners. I don't see anyone "defending" it, but testing is welcomed.
