Help with block heater plug..

So one of the wires for the block heater got cut somehow, except its right were the wires go into the plug so i cant splice it back together. Didnt really find separate wires but kinda found a green, black, and black with white lettering. Figured i could just splice in a plug from an old extension cord i have, just dont know what wires to put to what. The extension cord plug has green, red, and white....

Both should have a ground, nuetral, and power right???

Anybody able to help with this???

Or what is another option to fix it???

green is ground, black is your hot, and the black with white will be your neutral. if you are woried as far as which slot is which, with with the ground (round) is down, left slot is neutral and right is hot when looking at the female side.

Went ahead and did it, thought i hooked it up right but everytime i plug it in it'll through the breaker on the outlet right away. My guess is i hooked something up wrong, guess ill take it apart and try again....

sounds like you have the ground and hot reversed.

So whats this Marinco mod you speak of???

Other than trailer wireing, when it comes to some of the electrical stuff, I'm can be a complete idiot, hey we all got something right. But just to double check, on the house hold electrical cord, green is ground, white is nuetral, and red is hot correct?

I'll redo it today after work and see what happens

The Marinco mod uses a male socket to mount on the truck, which makes plugging in real easy!! I have pics in my sig and I am sure there is a write up on it on the net. many of us have done it!!

So went and checked my connections, from the info i got i should be right. green to green (ground), white on plug to black with white lettering on truck (neutral), and black on plug to black on truck (hot)...

Plugged it into an outlet, shocked the sh*t out of myself and the plug started to smoke. Short or whatever but something isn't right. Ain't going to ford so guess i'll be going down to Turner (cchase) to see what he can do for me.

Hate the fact that i can't figure out something stupid and simple like this. Can take my quad, strip it down to the frame and rebuild the whole f*ck*ng thing but cant figure out a plug with 3 wires <-- that makes me laugh and feel better everytime though.
