Tesla Road Trip: Arriving in St-Eugène – Day 4

This post is part of a 15-day electric road trip through Ontario, Quebec, and parts of the East Coast and back home. Today I reached St-Eugène.

Date: Saturday, January 25, 2020

I was able to charge the battery up in the Model 3 to 100%, which I found wasn’t completely necessary but I didn’t want it to dip below 20%. If it had, I would have woken up to a freaking cold car. What I found in the a.m. was that I used approximately 40 to 50% of the battery capacity to run the heater and Sentry Mode overnight, so charging was necessary in Bowmanville to make it to the next Supercharger on this trip.

I picked staying in Bowmanville due to there being a Planet Fitness nearby and of course the Supercharger. I have appreciated their hydro massage beds in my travels, which is a helpful therapy for all the sitting involved and the convenience of a clean shower. Oh, and of course, the ability to workout! ????

The road to Montreal was constantly coated with rain, sleet and eventually snow. I missed being able to safely use Autopilot or even activate Autopilot on this section of driving!

I tried switching chargers but kept receiving this error, pictured above. In order to get the car charged, I had to unplug and plug back in the car. I had to repeat this a few times to get it charged up fully.
