Re: 60 Amp Breaker

IIRC, 40A requires 8 gauge, and 6 gauge is either 55 or 60 amps (can't remember, actually). This is copper, BTW. For 60C wiring methods (NM, UF, LFNC, some LFMC, SER under some circumstances and code revisions), the ampacity of #8 copper is 40A, and of #6 copper is 55A (which means that for a non-r...

Re: 60 Amp Breaker

It would be an NEC violation. A 14-50 receptacle has to be protected by a breaker that is 50 amps or less.

Re: Programming Garage Door Opener...

Just to be clear after you did all this, if you wanted to, you wouldn't expect to have any problems reinstalling the factory mirror, right? Nope, I wouldn't expect any problems. I don't recall having had to make any non reversible alterations, and so unless my post a year says otherwise, I believe ...

Re: Can't add False Floor later?

A sharp utility knife, with two hands on the knife so you can't easily cut yourself. Less mess than a power tool. The cut doesn't have to be too neat, as the plastic brackets you are installing will cover it. Just try to stay within the embossed circle.

Re: "Full" battery levels dropping daily

Supplying a NEMA 5-15 receptacle with any voltage other than 120V (nominal) is an NEC code violation and a significant safety hazard. While the harm could be reduced by using a simplex receptacle and prominently marking the face plate (and maybe using a bubble cover over the receptacle that can be l...

Re: JDapter (trademark) Tesla Charging for all

I hate to be dense, but I am still confused. I thought the JDapter was all I would need to plug my Bolt into the Tesla Designation charging stations. If so, what is this Tesla portable UMC thing for? What charging stations does it open up that the JDaper alone will not? Tesla Destination Charger = ...

Re: JDapter (trademark) Tesla Charging for all

Here's a 5 minute primer: Electrical power is typically delivered as either AC (Alternating Current) or DC (Direct Current). Batteries use DC, while your household power is AC. A battery charger converts AC to DC, at the voltage required by the battery. EVs come with a battery charger in the car, al...

Re: Not enough federal tax liability!

Your statement about tax before and after deductions is confusing. In income tax language, a deduction is something you subtract from your taxable income before calculating your tax. Anything you subtract after calculating your tax is a payment or a credit. So if the $3K are withholding or estimated...

Re: How does the $7,500 Federal Tax Credit Work

The EV Tax Credit is a nonrefundable tax credit. So if your income tax is at least $7,500, you will get the full benefit. If your income tax is less, it will reduce your tax liability to 0. Income tax is line 44 plus line 45 if you file form 1040.

Re: Is Chevy investigating seat complaints?

Please let me know if you are interested in joining a class action.
Complaint to be filed next week

My perhaps limited understanding is that if the class is certified, then all owners would belong to the class unless they opt out. So are you looking for additional lead plaintiffs?

Cheers, Wayne
