Well, you reminded me why I never got around to it.

Your state may vary

No need for fish tape if your panel's in the garage. Unless it's recessed in the wall, I guess...complicates it slightly. Especially if drywall is also terrifying for some reason.

Sounds like youíll have to tear it down to the studs :lol:

Takes one hour of YouTube and common sense to install a 240V breaker. Another $40 for conduit, wire, and an outlet.

Depending on the state, you may need 8000 hours under a certified electrician before you can take the test.

I should take the test and get certified or whatever. Iíve done it all before. Iíve wired entire cell towers with 240VAC, 120VAC, 48VDC, and 24VDC systems all working together, including dangerous live wire installations because you canít turn off the whole tower or people will have dropped calls = end of world.

Oh man the demand for installers is MASSIVE here.

West coast things. I see a few Teslas around here, and Iíve seen one Bolt. I donít think Iím close enough to NYC or Boston for that fancy stuff.

It's so easy to wire up a 240V outlet if your panel is right there.

Side note: Electricians must be making a killing these days installing $15 240V breakers for people that have never thought about electricity before.
