    Could someone please measure and post the diameter of the NEMA 14-50 plug that comes wit the car?

    I am preparing for the arrival of my 70D and installing the outlet. Some of the outlet casings seem to be pretty small so I want to make sure the plug fits.

    Thank you!

    Receptacle face cut-out is 2" round, typically installed in a 4-inch square or double-gang deep box. Don't install in a single-gang (1-wide) outlet box, it will violate fill rules when you add receptacle plus wires.

    I do not know what any of this means :) but the electrician doing the install is licensed so I am sure it's going to be up to code. There's going to be a separate breaker box and a separate outlet enclosure (weatherproof since it's going to be installed outside).

    Ok, no worries... just ensure he installs a 50 amp RV outlet and you'll be fine.
