Block heater wiring

How do you all have your block heater wire run? I just found where mine is all coiled up under the hood. I want it to be in a spot where it can be disconnected when I drive off as sometimes I'm in a hurry if we have a fire dept. call in the middle of the night.

I was thinking get a short extension cord and run it to the trailer hitch area.

Mine is ran to my front bumper gonna eventually install a marine grade plug in my bumper itself. There is a post somewhere here about how to do it on my phone so when I get the chance I'll find it....But also if you have the funds you can get one like on the trucks at your station if you have them that auto eject at ignition (been a Vol. Firefighter for 5 years) but they are not cheap.

Gotcha. We've got a couple on our rigs. Is it possible to hook up a battery maintainer to it?

It's 110V AC, so no

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

Hahah that is too funny I made sure my block heater worked for the same reason. The first few times I had to go out and fire up and wait for the diesel to get a little warm trucks were already rolling and I am 1/8 mile from the station. I felt bad driving it cold and not getting in there in a hurry.

yes you can fabricate a battery maintainer for it but not through the block heater lol. And they sell the auto eject type plugs for 6V all the way up to 240V and different amperage's.

If you have an idea of a maintainer you would like to you I could design something for you.
