So we encourage you to join (or start) special-interest and regional-based Rivian clubs at: https://www.rivianforums.com/forum/group-categories/clubs-groups.1/
This looks like a very clean setup. My only concern would be my daughter opening the garage door when the cable is run through for charging.Here was how I configured my setup.
Installed the Rivian charger hard wired via 6ga cable (very small run to my panel) using a 60amp breaker.
Then mounted a place to store my cable closer to my garage door which I cut a hole through and installed a cap/door as a cable pass-through. (I also created an insulated foam plug to go into the cap when I'm not using it)
So now when I want to charge the truck I just pass the cable through my garage door. When I'm done I put it all away.
I park outside the garage since wife has the one garage spot. so mine is outside some of us have to rough it.Getting excited for my R1S and it will be the first EV I have. I'm torn on if I should hardwire (for max amps) a charger in the garage or outside around the corner. It really depends on if the R1S will fit in my garage or not.
Anyway, I tend to have a lot of outdoor tools lining the sides of my garage and a large wood set of shelves in the back so looking for inspiration on clean installs for charges in the garage and thought it would be great to have a compilation of them here. Doesn't matter if it is the rivian charger, plug in, hard wired, etc.
Now this is interesting! I'm anticipating having a Tesla to go with my Rivian eventually and I would rather not use adapters on a regular basis, but I don't need to charge both cars at once. So I was thinking of installing 2 chargers which could be selected using a switch such as this:Images when I was rapping up my installation. The DPDT safety switch allows me turn off the charger if I'm gone or allows me to use the circuit for my welder.
