In order for this to work the kit includes a device to check the 2 110v outlets before plugging in. It says it will check for no GFI. I also assume it will check to make sure that the 2 outlets are out of phase so the peak to peak V is 220. So it may take awhile to find an outlet that is out of phase since chances are the one right next is "in phase".......thats probably what the extension cord is for.
