end of plug gets hot?

I was wondering if anyone else's plug gets hot when it is plugged in. I know my plugs are bad and possibly relay. Could one or both cause the hot cord end? The cord has the ground post still on it. thanks in advance for opinions.

It is most likely a dirty connection try lightly sanding it. It is normal for these to get warm as there is a ton of volts being drawn by the truck i suggest plugging it in for only 3 to 4 hours before as they draw a ton as said before.Hope this helps

Goose has got it right, A dirty electrical connection=resistance=heat generation.
