Bolt owner living in a co-op apartment and taking road trips

Hi all-
I've been using this forum since 2017 off and on and love the info.
Been trying to get in touch with some of you via private messages, but ran into the 15 post minimum to activate that, so need to work my way up.
I'm living in NY and went through a year long process to get my co-op board to put in a NEMA 14-50 outlet to plug EVSE into before pulling the trigger on a 2017 Bolt. Love it and it's our only car. I'm going to be post a 2000 mile road trip vid soon. So keep an eye out. Thanks to all the great contributors here!

I would have traded all the tuna fish sandwiches in the world for 50 Amp to 30 Amp adapter that would work with my JuiceBox.

Which EVSE make/model are you using with that NEMA 14-50? How do you like it? I'm strongly considering having 14-50 outlets installed at some family members' houses so I can charge faster than 1.44kW when I visit.

I'm looking forward to the road trip summary. That's a long trip in a Bolt!

I'm using the JuiceBox Pro 40. It's a little more than I need, but I figured I was future-proofing myself a bit, and also may be able to make it available to fellow EV drivers who can charge at the higher amperage. I really like it. I like the app and the web portal they have, though I don't put some of the tools to use, like setting the car to charge at a certain time, becuase I control all of that through the bolt.

But I do like the portability and I brought it along on the road trip and used it a number of times at campsites with 50 Amp hook ups.

For those interested, I posted the first part of our 2000 mile road trip in the video forum.

Great video! Tx for posting. We've had a few epic road trips on this end but nothing with the Bolt yet.
