Re: Where to install Outlet for 240V Portable charger

If the J1772 cord gets damaged or appears to sustain damage...
There's the rub: it may not show the damage from the outside. It may just start breaking wire strands inside the insulation, with nothing visible outside. You should be able to improvise some sort of stress relief for it...

I installed an RV box on the side of my house and I just unplug every morning and stick the evse in my trunk. It's nice because the connection point is covered, your can lock it, and it has a 14-50 plug which is relatively future proof IMO.

I've had no issues using this setup with my evse upgrade unit since 2015. I'm in coastal Virginia so there is no shortage of rain and humidity here.

Those panels are nice.
Probably put the 50, 30, 20 amp version in my back yard.

I put the 240v receptacles in the garage and I don't need a panel, plus the evse brick stays out of the rain.

I charge with a Quick Charge power cable. I use as small 1x2 board to block the door from closing completely. It works fine. The Quick Charge cable is small but a larger board would work.
