We're hoping to go camping at Robin Hoods Bay at the weekend. Anyone know of any charging to be had in the area?
One hopes that it had a minimum Type A RCD as required by BS7671 for EV use and that all was waterproof.St Helen's in the Park http://www.sthelenscaravanpark.co.uk/ has hookups. I've used them. Just bought a three way blue commando adapter, and i wired up a commando plug with a three pin household socket on it, then plugged my portable i3 charger into this. It was slow - approx 10% charge per hour, but it worked a treat.
My point was not RCD yes or no (I'd hope all outdoor sockets had RCD protection), but rather the level of protection afforded by different types of RCD. An outlet not specifically provided for EV charging may not have a sufficiently high standard of RCD.Yes indeed. The socket I connected to was RCD protected, and the household socket went in the boot.
