Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

Trans bucks with A/C on.

While driving with the A/C on, If I ease into it, usually its fine but if I give it too much gas, the A/C will stop blowing and the trans will sometimes buck and the truck goes slow. once I get it up too speed, I let my foot off the gas and the A/C will start blowing again. Someone said it could be a vacuum hose leak?? what say you???

    Hard to say with so much going on. Sounds like you might have a misfire, voltage drop/charging issue, and maybe more. I would suggest as a first step to check your battery, battery connections and alternator output. If those check out fine, then have the truck scanned for trouble codes, If those don't show anything, then do a fuel pressure test.
