Anyone know the charge rate for a standard 120V/30A RV outlet?

Anyone know the charge rate for a standard 120V/30A RV outlet?

I test drove a Model S today and love it, but I have a question they could not answer. I plan to park my Tesla in the same garage where I store my RV. RV's use either 240V/50A or 120V/30A. My RV uses 120V/30A which I already have wired in my garage. The web site shows the charge time for a 240V/24A, but not my 120V/30A. Would the 120V/30A circuit provide a faster charge time than a wall outlet or do I need to call in an electrician?

@pricee2 : You'll find "photographic evidences" on this page, 8 comments before you own comment (comment title is "120 V @ 24 A : IT’S POSSIBLE")

@Thierry: Thanks for clueing me in. Had my P85 since 3/13. Seems there must have been a hardware change since then.

Pricee2 - you mean 3/13/2014? or did you mean March 2013?

I wasn't very clear. Should have said March 2013.

Yes, so far only people who have cars made in 2014 can charge at more than 20A on 120V. Not enough people have reported tests to nail down an exact build date.
