Can I adjust the amperage used while charging?

Hey all, just got home with my Lightning Lariat. I have a Chargepoint 40/48A charger that I use for my Tesla. The wiring is, uh, less than optimal and hooked to a 30amp fuse, so when I need to charge the Tesla I tell it to use no more than 20 amps. Does the Lightning have such a setting anywhere? I can't find it in the manual or online and I'm afraid to just plug the truck in, since it'll pop the breaker. Thanks in advance!

See if your ChargePoint can be dialed back to 24A. Many EVSEs (chargers) have dip switches for this. 24A is the maximum draw for a 30A circuit. You have to control this at the EVSE as the Lightning doesn't have a way to throttle the charging rate at the vehicle.
