It could not be more straight forward and it's no different than any other EVSE with a plug today.


I am an EE, and I do know the answers off the top of my head, except for wire size and I know where to look that up in the NEC.

I still hired an electrician to put in an outlet for my EVSE.

Therein lies a potential problem, i.e. finding a very qualified and reliable electrician. Years ago my general contractor (GC) indicated that his
electrician & team were very qualified for my new construction. After monitoring the first two days of their installation and then failing
the electrical inspection by the city, I removed all of their installation, had the GC fire the electrician, and did the electrical myself.

Just tell the electrician you need a 14-50 outlet for your RV. Big RV's plug into this.

It is likely that the electrician can install this since it is common.
