Has anyone gone through a New England winter w/o a heated garage?
How did that work out day to day?
How does the R1T do with sleet and freezing rain on the buttons on bed rails? Icing over the charging port?

I'll check in again around Thanksgiving, we'll have had a good mix of weather by then....

As for EVs. My Tesla’s do well outside in Alaska all winter. If anything better then my ICEs since you can cabin pre heat them to defrost for longer and warmer then an auto start. Also instant heat is nice.

mid be more concerned about the air suspension. Up here Jeeps, Mercedes, and others with air suspensions when it gets below 0F for a few days they tend to freeze from the inside.

A design issue with the tailgate, storage and bed cover buttons. I live in Maine and when we get any precip, the indented buttons fill with water and then freeze. This morning I couldn't even access the buttons.
