Welcome to the forum! I'm surprised you didn't get the R1T just to check it out and get comfortable with EVs. That thing will retain its resale value until the Silverado arrives!Hello everyone
Silverado EV RST First Edition reservation holder, reserved mine on Jan 5th 2022. I am a previous Rivian R1T reservation holder, but no longer. After 4 years on the waiting list and lots of thinking figured it was not worth the cost for an off-road adventure truck. If the range was like 600, they yes. I do not own any EVs and never have, this would be my first. We will see how this goes, cost is number one problem for me. Hopefully by the time it is available I will have enough saved up for it. Second issue for me is that my garage is too short to fit a full size truck into - hence why I ordered the R1T. So it will be interesting to see if there is an option for outdoor charging and how the truck will handle the outdoor elements in Wisconsin.
That's all I got for now
If you're really concerned about charging outdoors ta your home ... you can look into a "ruggedized" setup that is more meant for fleet/parking-lots than it is for a residential application.
HCS-60R, Ruggedized 48 Amp EVSE | ClipperCreek
The HCS-60R is an affordable solution designed for fleet, parking lot and extreme weather conditions.
Ruggedized ProMountDuo (PMD-10R) Universal Pedestal
The Ruggedized ProMountDuo (PMD-10R) Universal Pedestal is the perfect solution for installing your ClipperCreek or Tesla EVSE.
Edit: No, I don't work for CC or Enphase, I just know some people get these and seem to like it for inclement/outdoor applications.
Here's another model from Grizzl-E that people like for outdoor use in bad weather. It can be hard-wired instead of using the NEMA plug. Both of these options have a NEMA 4 enclosure as well.
