Hope the respective fog lights illuminate when the steering wheel is turned that direction too.
I turned that feature off in my Volvo. Too many people would flag me down and tell me I had a bulb out.

I'd rather just be able to configure the fog lights to be on whenever the low beams are on.

I didn't see any info here on what I asked the CS team today. So I'll add it here:

I was speaking with Kyle and I asked him if there will be a matte screen protector/option for the displays in the vehicle. They had no information on this.

I asked if the screens were positionable and I was told they are fixed in place.

I know there had been some discussion on other threads about whether or not there would be a 360° Camera system.

“Surround View Camera” sounds like a synonym to 360° Camera to me!

The Rivian rep in the Georgia state house video definitely confirmed birds-eye view would be available.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this yet. I checked with CS re. plugging in a cooler (like a Dometic). They confirmed 2 things re power and size:

1- There's a 12V DC outlet in the Frunk. It's connected to the same 15A circuit as are the other 12v DC and 110v AC outlets.
2- The frunk dimensions are the same for R1T and R1S, and are as follows:
  • 25.5 in long
  • 54.8 in wide
  • 22.7 in. deep
If anyone is looking for frunk dimensions, hope this helps.

Now the question is which Dometic (or alternative) Cooler to buy. Any suggestions appreciated.

I emailed CS to get some specific dimensions on the doors. While I didn't get what I wanted, I was told that the R1S' width with mirrors open is 86.97 inches and with mirrors folded is 81.73 inches. This is different from what's on the website for mirrors folded (79 in). I wrote back to ask if they were aware of this discrepancy but haven't heard back yet.

Edit: heard back and got confirmation that what's currently on the website is wrong:
Thank you for your patience while we research this matter! There has been some miscommunication as far as the measurement listed on the website and I want to thank you for bringing this to our attention! I have shared this with my teammates, and we will be fixing this issue ASAP. I just want to confirm that the measurements that I gave you are the correct measurement and as we get closer to launch, we will have the more specific specifications that you are requesting!
Edit 2: for anyone interested, here is what I originally asked for:
- length of the front door
- angle that either front door makes with the vehicle when fully open
- distance from vehicle side to edge of the door when fully open
- thickness of the actual door assembly itself

I’m going to go out on a limb and say the CSR was mistaken.

12V circuits are DC and 110-120V “household” circuits are AC.

Furthermore, even if they shared the same fuse and the inverter was down-line, a 15A fuse feeding an inverter would only allow 180W max power draw (and real-world would be less since the inverter cannot be 100% efficient). And we know that is false, since Rivian says the household outlets will support 1800W.

The 12V “cigarette plug” circuits are certainly separate from the “household” outlet circuit(s).

I had thought how great it would be also to have an electric cooler in the frunk...my concern was how do you disperse the heat?

This is the response I got from Bryan (CS).

In terms of the front trunk, there is a 12v outlet that can found in this area of the vehicle, however, there is not a cooler integrated into the front trunk, and I apologize if there was any confusion. The R1T however, has a rear storage bin under the truck bed floor with enough room to fit the optional full-sized spare tire. When empty, it can also double as a cooler with a plug for easy drainage.

Thanks Sdvictor!

What timing. I was just looking at the Dometic's last night, and was considering the CFX3 45, but was waiting for more info on the frunk sizing.

I was going between the CFX3 35 or 45, and both are the same size, except the 45 is 2-3" taller, and only about 4 pounds heavier.

I'm trying to keep the weight reasonable, as you have to lift the cooler up and in/out of the frunk, and I don't think I need a larger one (hope I'm right as these are expensive).

I was hoping there would be an outlet - either 12V or even electric in the frunk, just for this purpose, so thanks for confirming it.

Also not sure if Rivian will be offering one, as they are always showing the green color cooler in the videos, but I'm not sure if it is electric/DC powered, or just a regular type cooler. When they place the cooler in the frunk, it looks like they are almost 'snapping' it into place, or onto something, but they never show the details or inside after the cooler is positioned.

I've been trying to see if I could find (similar) one on the web, but no luck yet.

I also came across a Helus E60L powered cooler that looked very nice as well, and comes with a batter built in, but it too big for my needs. You might want to check it out though...

Yeah, i was wondering how that worked also. I wish there was a way to look back at the CS request chat and see the transcript. In any case, that 15A total system load statement stuck out to me too.

Let me know what they say, I really want to know the mirror width as well
