    Notwithstanding manufacturers warnings to the contrary, I need to extend the reach of the Level 1 charger supplied by the OEM. In need a short run (10-15 ft) from a 120V common receptical located near the garage door opener. What is the minimum gauge extension I should use noting that it would have to be standard 3-wire grounded plug? I am thinking 12-3 as most 10-3 are twist plugs.

    A 12-3 will work just fine. Physical damage to the extension cord and tripping over it are your biggest issues.
