I want to install a 240v NEMA 14-30 plug outside of my garage, so that I can plug a variety of things into it, including the charger for the Bolt. Has anyone done it or has an outdoor 14-30 plug? How is it kept water tight? I seem to have troubles finding a cover box for it.

It'll be hard to find the outdoor enclosure for a 14-30 because that receptacle is usually used for an appliance (often a dryer) indoors. Maybe you can get the 14-50 box and change the receptacle from the 14-50 to a 14-30.

You might be able to run an extension outside, by cutting a notch to accommodate it in a door.

I'm going to make my 16 amp EVSE available on plug share, since I can't sell it I may as well use it, let others use it as an emergency power supply.
