We’ve decided to head for the Aire du Bois Guillerot on the A36. It’ll be REx all the way – about 80 km in total. Not really how it should be done.
This is the reality of EV life in 2017. Sometimes you get well and truly stuffed through no fault of your own. Even the best laid plans can fall apart.
Fortunately we aren’t in a rush and the stress levels are surprisingly near normal. We’ll have earned that bottle of Swiss wine tonight all the same.
One last thing: the Sodétrel call centre person told us it was our fault we couldn’t charge because we had the car doors open. This is utterly ludicrous. We’ve charged almost always with one of us in the car with the doors open at least for part of the time. Open or shut doors make zero difference if the hardware is faulty.
