Block heater cord

I bought my truck new in 97. During the winter my block heater cord hangs down below my cab sometimes. Conservatively speaking I have probably been asked at least 100 times what was hanging down. The other day I finally came up with the best answer ever. Its a hybrid.

What? The cord hanging down? It's a hybrid.

Dude! love the bumper plug, I'm going to put that on my list. My truck already burns an alternate fuel, and if I could plug it in to! Awesome, just AWESOME.

I've already been on the look out for a "trendy" hybrid sticker for my truck.

Funny thing though, even without hybrid badges no one bats an eye at me when I park in the "hybrid only zone" and trust me, I'm just itching for some one to say HEY YOU CAN"T PARK THERE, lol

Should have used an "Auto-Eject" style plug. No more driving down the driveway with a extension cord following.

Surprisingly I got asked the same thing yesterday. It took them a couple minutes of an explanation and hard thinking to figure out the concept. That plug looks good. I just put a chrome one from a semi on. I'll try to get a picture up tomorrow. But to answer the question. It's the Marinco plug. Just google that for a 15amp!
