I started the car up so I could warm up the interior and thaw out the windows while it was plugged in.
Is this possible? i hope the car would not go to READY when it is plugged in to charge, otherwise someone will drive and pull the EVSE off the wall.

So I I have rethought this, I now understand that the 12 volt battery only charges when it is in the charge mode(plugged in) or when it is in ready mode. So when I am plugged into the charger and I turn on the car to warm it up it is not in ready mode and the charger is not charging, so the 12 volt battery is running on reserve battery power. So effectively I am killing the 12 volt battery. Why can't the DC/DC converter be always hooked to the main battery thus keeping it up to charge regardless of whether the main battery is charging or not?
