New Find

while working on our '06 Forest River Lexington 255D, I discovered a 110 volt male plug behind the bumper, it appears to never have been used, has a protective cover on it. I was wondering if some one here might know what it is supposed to be for. I did not follow up on seeing where it went from the bumper, as it was late in the day. I did a quick look at the manuals that came with the rig, but did not see anything relating to the plug in them....

If it is in the front, it is likely for an engine block heater.

I agree with Narboza sounds like a block heater if is in the engine area.

Thanks campers!!....my neighbor who also has a diesel truck advised that it is a block heater, to be used when under 32 deg weather to allow for warming of fuel and oil before cranking engine up. The rig manuals were really unhelpful as they show no diagrams or even discuss the subject other than to say plug it in (if equipped).....jeeezzzz!!!.
Living in WA, we do get below freezing during the off season, but don't go camping then anyway. But it's good to know the heater is there just in case!!.....
