Yep, checked this morning after being plugged in overnight. The engine block was cold. I messed with the plug today - the boot is a very soft rubber and I was able to cut the part that angles the wires up. This exposed a little more wire, which seems to be heatproof rubber, but I pulled the foil shield down a little more. Hopefully I can reach back there and plug it in without having to take everything out again. I think I can test to see if it's plugged in by checking resistance across the hot and neutral blades on the plug - at 400 watts, it should be about 30 ohms.
