WANTED: Home Connector output cable

    So, I have a GEN 1 Home connector for my Tesla and the handpiece that plugs into the car is getting ratty (plastic insulation cracking). Today, I got multiple trip-outs on the circuit breaker, even at lowered current. Hmmm... I wrapped some electrical tape around it and shoved the piece in with some extra gusto and it worked fine (!). I suspect the tight fit between socket and plug has worn it out and loosened the internal connections. That may have caused some weird semi-short that tripped the breaker. I watched it happen while monitoring in the car, while it showed just 22 A (I had forced the lower current, after it tripped at 48, 40, and 32). SO, bottom line, I need a new cable/handpiece, because otherwise the charger is fine. Can't find one online. Does anyone have a dead charger that I might buy to extract the cable?
