    Hi guys,
    Changed my mind on the wall mounted box for my semi-permanent UMC setup. Going to put the Nema 14-50 outlet on the inside of the garage, then run the wand thru a hole with PVC. I don't pickup the car till later this week, and my guy is coming tomorrow to run the electrical. What size hole/PVC do I need? 2 inch?
    Thanks

    For Sch 40, 3/4 " should be enough per this chart but I would go for 1", especially if it is some distance. 2" conduit is massive, way bigger than needed.
    See this chart:

    I need the UMC wand to fit through the hole. I don't think wire size matters as it will be smaller than the wand head.
