I talked with the very nice family while they charged their Tesla (there is like a "mood ring" around the electrical
port that turns colors as the car charges, I believe it glowed green when charging was complete), and when the battery
cooling fan(s) kicked on, it sounded like a helicopter getting ready to take off! Two things they just had to show me: 1) the "frunk" (front trunk), like the old VWs (but much more posh than in my old '71 Super Beetle), and 2) the location of the cap for the only fluid they had to worry about - windshield wiper fluid (I guess they didn't have to worry about brake fluid, assuming the Tesla has old-fashioned hydraulic brakes). I didn't specifically ask, but my impression was the charging was free for now (Tesla promotional?). Nice family, cool car, interesting concept, but I'm guessing towing with a Tesla is out of the question. Oh, and for those concerned about me frying my batteries, my comment about a Camping World adaptor/converter was "tongue-in-cheek" (note smiley face), but thanks for your concern. Our tow vehicle does the job just fine.
