    250V MVP plug craziness

    Why not just change the wall sockets?

    Just google 230v adapters. You can diy or purchase pre made units.

I imagine there's got to be an adapter somewhere -- the outlets say 'NEMA 14-20R' and are smaller than the MVP plug, and have 4 holes to the plug's 3. Ideas?Thanks!
    I would just make up a short adapter cable to convert the 4 pin to three pin. The four pin is generally hot, the other hot, neutral, and ground. In the three pin they omit neutral, as I understand it. They are both 240 volts between the two hot wires. You can get all the material at Home Depot or Lowes. If this seems too complicated, find a friend who knows something about electricity, or an electrician who would accept a case if beer as payment for wiring it up.
