    Could someone please measure the diameter of the NEMA 14-50 plug that comes with the car? I am putting in an outlet and some of the enclosures look like it would be a tight fit.

    Can measure for you tomorrow, but in general it is a perfect circle plug that is at most 1/4" past where the prongs all are. It does then extend out about 2-3 inches front the plug with that same thickness before it changes into a cord - i.e. the adapter part. I'd say off hand you need a good 4-5 inches clearance away from the plug before the cord can twist to a direction...

    If all that makes sense, will add a couple pics for you if helps. (edit: oops for some reason it added them multiple times!)

    I appreciate it but I already installed the outlet. I am ready for my MS :)
