    I will be at the Pinehurst Resort (no, it is for work ... and the Golf clubs will stay at home) in a few weeks and had asked them about charging my MS85, so I can have a relaxed return.

    They told me the following - which is really nice - and included this picture. It looks different than the NEMA 14-30 and 14-50 (I made an adaptor 14-30 to be used, so I have both).

    Does this fit the 112 V home adapter? So I just plug in the one I got from Tesla and it will work?

    It reads 20A - 125V - 5-20 (where the 5-20 could be the NEMA designation).

    They wrote in the nice reply email..... NEMA Pinehurst photo.JPG "We do have a charger available, however, you will need to bring your own cord. There is no charge for the use of it. Please let me know if you have any further questions. "

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Great news. Please let us know if this/these are only at the hotels (for guests only?), or if they are also at the golf course parking areas. Have fun!

    You are right, it's a NEMA 5-20. Tesla makes an adapter for this which will pull 16A and give you about 5 miles/hr. If you don't want to buy that, you could use the 5-15 (normal 120V adapter) that came with the UMC which draws 12A and get 3 miles/hr.

    There also seems to be a J1772 charger nearby on Plugshare ... Village Green.

    I do wish Tesla would lower the prices on their charge adapters... they seem to be, well, about 5x what they should cost.

    Seems like a golf resort the size of Pinehurst would have dozens of 220-240V outlets...
