As stated in the first post....the extension cord is 100ft. Yes he knows. There is NO DANGER AT ALL to that arrangement due to a smart cable arrangement of said extension cord. This was all mentioned in previous posts.How long is your extension cord, and does the landlord know you're doing this? I think if I was the landlord, I'd at least put in a switched exterior outlet to avoid this arrangement.
I do like your avatar.Anyone else have any useful ideas?
Generally (for boxes like these, in the western US, YMMV) all the breakers on the left side of the box will be on one phase, and the breakers on the other side of the box will be on the other phase. You'd need to remove the safety shield to see how the bus bar is arranged to make certain. I couldn't find a detailed interior diagram showing bus bar routing with light googling. In any case, if you wanted to try one of these chargers you could test outlets based on that notion, and see. Easier to start that way than picking random outlet pairings.Yeah, it would be unfortunate to waste multiple minutes looking. Maybe circuits #11 and #12, who knows.
Lol, I was approaching the situation so as to not even ask the Landlord. I added my 240 breaker to the panel at the house with it live so my wife wouldn't know what I was doing. I did have to sneak into the house and reprogram the coffee maker before she noticed as I had to pull a few breakers to make room. Too bad the stove wasn't gas. My house has a propane stove, but behind it is the wiring for electric just sitting there doing nothing.Sixteen forum members and over 65 messages haven't come up with a solution. It's where you are. So it goes.
Well I am getting QUITE sick and tired of having to go out and playing with a 100ft cord just to plug in my Bolt EV. Snaking a wire down the stairs, out the hall, pinched out two doors and out to my car.
Thanks for any useful help you can provide.
Any chance there's an electric dryer in the basement of the house? Maybe you could get the landlord's permission to use that to power a lesser EVSE (24-amps max on a 30-amp branch circuit). Just unplug the dryer and plug in your extension cord ... Of course you can't do the laundry while charging ;-)
Nope. There is a gap under the door and is covered by a couple rubber strips.Slightly off topic, but don't you lose a lot of heat when you run the extension cord in the winter? I think you mentioned that you run the cord underneath the door, but that sounds like an awfully big gap on the bottom of the door.
