An EV jump start = a portable generator and about an hour's worth of charge.. Or tow it to a re-charge station. A traditional "Jump start" wont work.

IF you want to drive way more than your range. Carry a portable generator on a cargo tray (hitch mounted you do not want it INSIDE the vehicle)(


You really need to read the prior posts before jumping in, John. There is a situation where some EV's can in fact be "jump started".

Jump start and filling the tank are two different things.

Our local (SE Michigan) has at least a few "EV Rescue" trucks. Since you can't being anything like a "gas can" to an EV, they have several roll-backs with largish generators mounted on the deck. They can go and pick up the dead EV and occupant and charge the EV enough to be self propelled and deliver both to a destination. I don't know if the service is covered by their standard coverage.

Probably. Ours does. Either a tow or a charge if they have the emergency charge equipment. They also pick up our trailer. But, like I say, if you use the instrumentation in the car it would be pretty hard to run an electric car flat, either with or without a trailer. Just tell (by voice) the car where you are going. The car will tell you in the form of a graph how much of a charge you will arrive with. It’s that simple.

So why can’t you bring a “Gas Can” to an EV or carry one in your trunk? Can’t they make a small battery that can hold 5-10 miles of charge that can be connected to the vehicle via power cord? Not to recharge the main battery but a temporary battery pack. Seems like an opportunity like those swappable propane cylinders.

Oh yeah, and there are multiple levels of readout or alarms on ICE based cars that alert people they are running out of fuel. But people still manage it.

I brought this up on another thread, and such a thing does exist. You can buy them and I think I also read that some AAA and tow services have them. Zip charge and blink are two that came to mind.

This can be done with a battery and 2000w inverter.

Sorry I don't know where the block button is.

None of my comments relate to towing. Is this some other dead horse you want to beat?


Clearly just more anti EV rhetoric that has nothing to do with RV's.

Go to one of his posts and click on his user name. A list will appear. Click block this member.

Only problem is you will still see his unuseful posts when someone quotes him, as you just did
