120V, 20A charge port3742 viewsAs you can see, it has the sideways prong to only allow a 20A rated cord to plug into it.
I'll carry an adapter for those times I need to plug into a 15A or less outlet.

Charge Port Door switch5424 viewsThis shows how I mounted a switch on each of the charge port doors. (used to be gas tank doors!)
This switch will tell the Z2K controller if either of the charge port doors is open, and if so, it won't let the truck "start".
Really helpful to prevent driving off with the cord still plugged in.

PFC mount4589 viewsThis shows how the PFC 50 charger is mounted under the hood.
It's at an angle so that I can easily reach the controls.
The 2 meters in the wiring station are a 50A AC Ammeter, and a 300V AC Voltmeter. Useful for adjusting the charger for whatever I happen to be plugged in to.

Breaker Box w/mechanical interlock6152 viewsThis is the breaker box that is mounted on the truck. It has a 240V, 50A GFCI breaker, and a 20A 120V (dual) breaker.
Each breaker enables one of the charge ports. Only 1 can be "on" at a time due to the rather simple mechanical interlock.
