RV parks are much more plentiful than charging stations and most of them have 240v 50A power available with a NEMA 15-50 outlet. These should be a convenient place to recharge for those of us far from public charging stations who might need to (partially) recharge on the road. Does anyone have any experience with this? What would you expect an RV park to charge per hour to use their 240v outlets? I just called an RV park about 170 miles from my house, along a route that I frequently take for a 250 mile trip. I was the first electric car owner to inquire about charging - he was receptive to this, but did not know what he would charge. I expect he will think about it and come up with a fee, but what do you think is fair? Maybe $3-4 per hour, with a maximum of $15? They charge $25 per night for full use of the space for RVs.
