I'm driving to a lodge that offers complimentary TT-30 charging for guests, or you can rent a campsite with a 14-50 outlet. Rather than rent the campsite, I'm hoping to use a hardware store RV TT-30 to 14-50 adapter with my smart EVSE.

My smart EVSE is the Mustart Travelmaster, and I have the 14-50 (240V) adapter and 5-15 (120V) adapter for it. I know people on here don't recommend the Mustart because it's not UL certified (although mine has UL branding on the cords), but it has always worked fine for me. Both adapters work great, I get the expected charge rate based on the adapter I'm using.

I have contingency plans, like renting the 50a camp site, charging at L1 on a 5-15, or taking it slow to a DCFC location that should be within range. But my question is: will the RV TT-30 adapter work with my smart EVSE?

It鈥檒l almost certainly work, but you鈥檙e limited to 12A on the Bolt because it鈥檚 running at 120V (that鈥檚 a Bolt-specific limitation), so there鈥檚 no advantage over the L1 and 5-15.

That will be fine. I don't know for certain if they offer a 5-15 that is easy to access, but if I can get a 12A charge off the TT-30, that should provide enough range along with what I should have remaining from the journey there.

Thanks!
