    Wasn’t sure where to post this or if it has already been asked/answered, but figured it’s a pretty general question about the R1T. Does anyone know if the 12v outlets run off the main vehicle battery or off the two 12v batteries?

    I have a question about the 12V architecture as part of my question set for the First Mile event. The 12V batteries look small-ish, but generally EVs use DC-DC converters from the main pack to operate the 12V system and charge the 12V batteries. So, a “standard” 12V battery is not strictly necessary. With the two 12V batteries, there is likely some separation of function in the low voltage bus design.

    The 120v outlets run off the main batteries.
