That's how it's wired into the plug. It should also be marked on the plug. Best way to do it if you're wanting to run a whole new cable assembly would be to just start taking it out. I think Zach is on par with just replacing the last 18" or so. If you actually have an issue somewhere along the cable, replacing the whole thing may be less painful though. Every time I've encountered corrosion, it's only spread about 3" under the insulation, so cutting out 18" would remove all corrosion, and give you a little bit of working room for the splice.
Liquid electrical tape covered with heat shrink would weatherproof your splice, or you can get the adhesive laced heat shrink that will weather proof it in one shot. A little more expensive than standard heat shrink, but I love the stuff.
