Don't forget it though when you get ready to leave in the morning.
Our fire trucks have engine block heaters and battery maintainers, I made the mistake of hauling butt without unplugging the cord and ripped the spool off the ceiling of the station, after that we bought ejector plugs that spit the plug out when the truck starts. Wonder if you can do that for our trucks?

Here is the link for the type of auto ejectors that we use on the fire trucks, think it would work? Kussmaul Electronics Co., Inc. Super 30 Auto Eject Data Sheet

Interesting idea..what I can't figure out is how it ejects. I suppose bescause of the prongs? then the cap just closes for the seal

No they literally shoot out, they eject about 5-10feet from the truck, one wire goes to the starter wire or something like that. It happens as soon as you start the truck before you even move.

all the Navistar motors have the element. So if no cord that is all you need.

11 and up's ford built motor is a different story.
