    Has anyone charged their Roadster successfully on the NEMA 14-50 at the Inn at Spanish Bay near Pebble beach?
    I found the chargers on PlugShare and they seem to be unbranded relics from a previous EV era :)

    No, sorry. When I was there, I charged using the 14-50 at the Tesla Store & also used the 70amp HPC in Salinas by Rabo Bank.

    On the other hand, there is a lot less to go wrong with a NEMA 14-50 outlet compared to an old and uncared-for EVSE. The biggest risk might be that the breaker is turned off, or that it is inaccessible within the length of your cord due to vehicles or junk in the way.

    Back in late July I charged at the Pebble Beach Market. The only issue was the plug was upside down and it put a strain on the cord.

    I managed to get this charger to work. It's a great stopping point on the way if you are going further south.
