I was just contacted by my electrician who installed my outdoor NEMA 14-50R. He was calling because he believes the outlet he installed isn't high enough quality of an outlet that I need. He literally said that my outlet could "melt" Personally I don't think he realizes that I'm only charging at 32A and not 50A .....
He further explained that he believed my NEMA 14-50R (the brand is Cooper) needed to be replaced with an outlet made by Hubble he gave the product number as: HWD HBL 9450A
I'm not sure what the difference is? isn't all NEMA 14-50's the same?
I suppose he may be worried about plugging and unplugging from the outlet so much, may wear and tear the components down since it isn't "an RV outlet" was his words?
Honestly I just feel a little confused and not sure if I need to replace the brand new outlet that I had installed. So far (3 days) it charges fine, no problems at all and I just don't know if I need to spend another $200 to replace this outlet I just had installed. Can anyone help me think through this?
