It went from 81% to 55% in 17 days after I got back from out of country vacation. Outdoor temperature average was mainly in 50F ~ 75F range with Gear Guard was on, but it didn’t trigger any motion sensed video recording. I just learned I can geofenced Gear Guard to default off at home. What else can I do to improve and lessen the drainage situation?

I leave them plug in everyday whenever I get home. But being far away from home for extended period, I rather detach from charger to avoid any possible fire hazard.

I’m not concerned of vampire drain as I have Level-2 charger at home. Just hope Rivian can optimize it in OTA Update down the road. I love this R1S! ❤
I would like to see Rivian allow you to set charge limit to any number. I typically will charge my Tesla to 75% and set the charge limit to 50%, then plug it in if I am leaving it for an extended period. Not sure how I would do the Rivian right now only able to set at 70% at the lowest limit.
