My thanks to Mike Levine, Head of Communications for Ford NA, Herschel Wourman, the manager for the Ford display, and Sarah, a Lightning Product Specialist for this opportunity.

The Lightning was up on the off-limits pedestal. Thanks to Mike I was able to get up there and have Sarah show me around the Lightning inside and out. (If you go to the show and ask really nicely to get up there to see it, they will still say no.)

My Q&A is at Questions for Product Specialists at the DC Auto Show?

My apologies for the bad colors. Ford's display of it's star vehicle uses dramatic blue LED lighting that completely distorts colors. I shot many of them in RAW and tried to color correct but it was hopeless. All of these are uncorrected.

So, here are exterior shots. The color of this Lariat is Carbonized Gray -- yes, really. It was the only Lightning there.

Thanks for the picture of the L14-30 receptacle. That 7.2kW is all the Intelligent* backup power I would need for the critical load panel in my house, including 240V well pump. I will very happily retire my generator and simply use Lightning.

* - Intelligent because there's no reason to get carried away when I already have all I need

Bigger question here I'm not sure I've seen - what is the "breaker" reset for these should you overload a circuit? Does the truck have a breaker or a fuse?
They almost certainly have to all be GFCI protected by Code. I'm not sure what form it would take.
