While we are on the subject…what is the difference between a 6-15 and 6-30 receptacle? I know one is rated for 15 amps and the other 30 but they look like the same plugs on the charts? Is there a subtle difference that prevents the 6-30P from plugging into a 6-15R or even 6-20R receptacle?

They are not interchangeable. One is a little bit more heavy-duty than the other. Easier to see if you google the plugs rather than the receptacles.
