The Nissan mobile EVSE was not designed for the way you are thinking about using it.
Water is one problem,
Frequent connect/disconnect is another,
Frequent use at 240v is a third
The Nissan unit is fairly well sealed from rain and splashing, however is should not be left on the ground if the area is subject to standing water.
If you intend to use it outdoors permanently, then some type of cover or enclosure would protect from water and, if lockable, help prevent theft. It is perfectly fine to use it for charging every day at either 240 volts or 120 volts with suitable circuits and receptacles. Frequent plugging/unplugging will eventually wear the contacts in the wall receptacle, but the plug on the Nissan EVSE will be fine and receptacle replacement is not expensive.
