Tow the Chevy Spark EV and charge with 50 amp pedestal
Ok - the Spark EV can be had for around $15k in after all credits or $139 month lease with $0 down. It can't be flat towed but can be towed on a dolly. One day they will figure out that an electric vehicle seems to be the perfect dinghy due to the types of trips they take if you have access to shore power and make them able to be flat towed and perhaps even use the regenerative braking. Anyway, my question is if the typical 50 amp connection at RV campgrounds is the same exact wiring as a 4 prong dryer outlet. (Yes I know that an RV typically uses the 120v legs of the 240v circuit while a dryer uses the full 240v. If the wiring is identical to the plug, this would allow the Spark EV to use the faster charging option while at camp vs 110 volt. Hmm.. Thoughts? Here is an example of a portable 240volt charger for one. Clipper Creek Introduces Smaller, Cheaper, More Portable 240-Volt Charging Unit | PluginCars.com
. Yes, I realize that the RV would have to be unplugged for 3-5 hours when charging an EV but in examples like mine, my RV would simply use the 30 AMP plug on the pedestal.
