Most RV parks offer 1 or multiple of these outlets:

Assuming you need about 100kwh to fill up your EV, it’s important to be aware of how fast these different options charge your car.

1. 20A 120V Charging Option (very slow)

This is the slowest possible way to charge. An EV charger will generally use only 12A at 120v using these plugs, meaning you are filling up at approx 1.4kw per hour. If you need 100kw to fill up, that would take about 72 hours (3 days).

2. 30A 120V Charging Option (medium speed, but most EV chargers don’t offer this plug)

The 30A 120v plug is somewhat unique to RV parks, and is considerably slower than the 240v version that is commonly known as a dryer plug. Most EVs do not offer chargers that fit this plug. But if you did use it, you’d likely be limited to 24A (this is a built in safety margin) which is exactly double the speed of option 1. A full charge in about 36 hours.

3. 50A 240V Charging Option (fastest option, a full overnight charge)

This is the very best option, and EVs come standard with this fast charging plug. While the plug allows for 50A, the charger generally maxes out at 32A. Because that is at 240v, you’d fill a 100kwh battery in just 13 hours.
