9/2010: Tesla breaker reset, OK.
6/30/09: Tesla station breaker tripped. Avcon damaged, inoperative. SPI both OK.
5/09: To be verified.
8/9/04: Now the Avcon unit on the left has been vandalized as well. There is no Avcon service available at this location now. Tom Dowling.
4/1/03 Marc Geller: Both AVCONs at the Vallejo Ferry Parking have problems. One (on the left) is the victim or vandalism rendering it useless. The other has a handle that doesn't like to stay put in the charger inlet, clicking the charger off unless it is held in place by wedging the cable under the car wheel, which I have done successfully.

12/17/03: Small paddle swapout completed, per Ed Huestis 12/17/03.
8/29/03: Due for upgrade to small paddle by 10/31/03, per Ed Huestis 8/29/03.
