Comment on the Shorepower web site

I meant to mention this earlier.

On a screen on the Shorepower web site, there is a technique offered where a user can activate the power pedestal port via the Internet. You select the site where you are, specify the pedestal and port that you want to use and then pay for it via a CC or perhaps PayPal.

This may work better if you set up an account with Shorepower in advance. I may do that, but don't yet have an account with Shorepower.

If you've a smart phone with Internet data, then you can activate a Shorepower pedestal without having to go into the truck stop store. I may try this on my next stop at a Shorepower facility.

For first time usage, I opted to pay via the kiosk inside the truck stop. Since I didn't have a member account, I selected "Guest" and completed the authorization/pay screens with no problems.

Regardless of how many hours you pre-pay, the Shorepower software won't actually charge your CC until you use power. If you stay for the entire time that you specified, it will cut off the pedestal when the time has elapsed. If you leave early, your CC will be charged for the time used, per the co.'s policy regarding partial hours. In effect, if you initially set up for too many hours, you won't be charged for what you don't use. That's my understanding.
