Hola - I think it's pretty cool that Tesla has the manual available on screen. But my mind drifts and I wonder about scenarios where I need a tow truck. Will the screen be working? Will the Tow truck know what to do (picture remote area, weak / no cell coverage)? I'm thinking about having printouts of the instructions / rules for tow trucks and folding up and putting in the compartment between the seats. Wondering if anyone has done something similar - other important info to include for other scenarios?

Yup fair for most circumstances, but you missed the weak or no cell phone coverage part of my note. Or, perhaps my wife is driving and frankly, she is not as into the details of the car .... she just wants to drive it, get from point A to point B, and does not do things like visit forums like this or play with all that the car has to offer. I'm thinking of having something very handy for her to be able to leverage.

You can save the manual on your phone via adobe acrobat or whatever and make it an offline option.

Download it to your phone right now.

I mean, if you want to print it out, go ahead.
But honestly, I've never had a tow-truck driver ask to see my owner's manual before dragging my car up onto the flatbed.
