Re: Adapters

OK so am I safe with the 10 gauge wire because that is good enough for a typical 30A dryer receptacle and I can rely on the house breaker/fuse or do I need additional breakers or fuses in the line? And secondly, do I need to upgrade my connectors or will they be OK for the very limited use? I was fi...

Re: Adapters

I use a similar set up for charging mine. Except I have arc fault breakers in a box between the 240V plug and receptacle where I plug in my 100 foot 12 gauge extension cord. 12 gauge 100 ft cords are rated at 13 to 15 amps depending on where they were made and where they are sold. So either is OK. ...

Re: Adapters

NEMA 5-15 connectors may be rated for 15 amps, but they are a poor choice for anything that will be drawing 12 to 15 amps for hours on end - No matter how new or quality the connectors are, they will get warm and eventually they will cause you problems as they age and wear Don Yes and I plan on usi...

I thought 10 gauge wire could handle 30 amps. The wire inside that cord seems much thicker than what goes to my dryer.

Re: I have a secret - odometer display mystery

Update on this story! I contacted York Mitsu where I bought the car and got pushback from the first person I talked to, and I pushed back to him. He said someone will call me. Then the sales rep Ken who sold me the car called. I explained the situation. He asked for a video. I took a video of the od...

Re: Shore Trip

https://autoguida.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/imiev-coulomb-all2.png OK so if am reading this graph properly, "Standard constant speed" represents using no HVAC. So I can basically use that info. And it is right on what I have calculated. The black line at 40mph is about 80 miles range wh...
