Hello. I will be traveling with 2 kids (4 and 6 years old) from 91360 (Thousand Oaks) to 92075 (Solana Beach) this Fri about noon. My leaf has all it's bars. I have looked using Plugshare and it looks like I should be able to make it using 2 stops with the Chademo DCFC. I will most likely take the 101 to 405 to 5, but am open to alternate routes to avoid traffic. Also looking for suggestions on which stations to use. The perfect charging station would have Chademo DCFC, clean restrooms and green space for the kids to release.
By the way, is there a trick to getting the Chademo plug in correctly? I have only tried it twice and each time had trouble getting it seated to charge. I don't hear a click either.
