I've had my 2016 Leaf SL with an OpenEVSE for more than a year now and one thing I've been considering is lubricating the J1772 plug as I find it takes some force to fully seat or remove it.
Do others find this seems to require more force than should be necessary, Maybe the plastic used for my particular OpenEVSE plug
happens to bind with the type of plastic the Leaf uses. Or maybe this force is just what is needed for the electrical contacts (but I doubt it).
It would make a difficult-to-clean mess if this didn't help any, so I wanted to ask if anyone has tried lubricating their plug (I only charge at home, so am not concerned about messing up any public chargers). My first thought would be to try white lithium grease on both the inside and outside of the big 1½" shroud around all the pins.
