I’d consider this if I were you. I did something similar to what you described with a CMC and NEMA 14-50. I’m happy with it since my daughter may need to use the 14-50 for their RV on occasion. Otherwise I would have spent less on a HPWC. Setup is below.
Look very nice. Could show the inside of the bigger box? Can you put your mobile charger inside?

For what it is worth I learned something new today:

”Using a 50A plug and receptacle is allowed on a 40A circuit because of an exception in the Electrical Code. The exception is because 40A receptacles do not exist, or rather, are not part of the NEMA standards.”

So my prior comment

Generally the plug should match the breaker, so using a 50 amp plug with a 40 amp breaker as you suggest is likely not code.

Was wrong!
