    B946490A-503F-485E-AF1A-034AA09FBDA8.jpeg I feel like this should be simple, but I charged my car overnight with an electrcal outlet at my trailer and I can’t figure out how to disconnect the end that plugs into the outlet from the main component. I don’t want to pull too hard on it in case I damage it. Do you press somewhere on the sides of the main component to allow it to disengage?

    Just pull on the adapter pigtail a little harder. It’s a relatively tight friction-fit connector. No mechanical locking mechanism is involved here.

    Pull hard and RTM it tells you what to do.

    Perfect. Just didn't want to damage it right off the bat if I was doing it incorrectly.
