I am a newbie here and not an electrician - so please forgive my dumb questions.
I need a couple of queries answered, I thought I'd ask before going to the electrician.
1. Can the NEMA 14- 50 outlet run on a 30 AMP outlet? I understand that it slow charging at 24 AMPS, better than 4 miles /hr on a regular outlet? Are there any other concerns?
2. This outlet is shared with drier. I am not sure if I can use the unused outlet. The conduit comes in and splits up in the two boxes. One is used by the drier, and the other one is closed (un-used).
I know them sounds dangerous. But, I am out of breaker spots in my box, and my main is on the other side of the garage. Adding a separate breaker box or adding in from the main would cost me a couple of thousands. And moreover, if an electrician has provided an additional outlet box, I would assumed it can be used.
