Now that the L3 Eaton DC Quick Charge at the San Bernardino 7-11 is operational, this region deserves its own L3 thread.
Discussion of plans for other L3 DC QC installations in LA and SB are welcome here. There are multiple independent reports from reliable folks that another L3 DC QC is coming soon to AQMD in Diamond Bar.
The L3 at Mitsubishi HQ in Cypress, OC has its own thread:

All folks who charge or plan to charge at:
7-11 DC QC
3993 N. Sierra Way
San Bernardino, CA
are invited to post here. Take the H-18 Waterman exit from I-210, drive N. 1.5 miles, turn left onto E. 40th street, and proceed W. .5 miles to the 7-11 on the SE corner of 40th st. and Sierra Way. The unit is unlocked and free for now, and the unit currently has no hardware to support collecting a fee. You might wish to thank Gill inside while you are charging.
Earlier discussion of the long delay in getting this site operational is posted at the following thread, which now can be dedicated to announcements of L2 charging in the same areas.

Here are some photos from the Eaton repair day, Tuesday, March 20. The Eaton engineer in the blue shirt is Donovan Grey, who endured a long series of weather-connected flight delays from NC to Ontario. He left home at 7AM Eastern time and arrived ONT at about 9PM PDT.
After confirming the faults with my Leaf, he captured the fault code history:
After switching off the unit's dedicated breaker in the meter room, he opened up the unit and replaced a controller board:
The unit has 5 power drawers, each rated at 10kW.
You can see the surprisingly small input transformers, one per phase.
The repair required leaving the bottom drawer off-line for a total derated capacity of 40kW. Here you can see my Leaf charging near this rate. It started at about 44% SOC.
After returning from lunch, we found asharpleaf with his son charging their matched Leafs. They had been alerted by abasile whom I had called.
