The outside temperature was +1(34) degrees. And the sun was shinning on the rear of the motorhome.

On my 2004 39K the engine heater cord was bundled and tied in the upper right rear of the power compartment. Didn't appear it had ever been used. I removed the wire tie and then plugged it in. Went inside and turned on the switch and noticed a about a 12 amp increase in the meter when activated. Hope this helps

When I get a chance I'll take a better look for it. I'm still not sure what the metal enclosure is for inside the compartment. I'm assuming it protects vital electric stuff.

I have a 2005 Journey 39F. In the electrical bay, there is a panel on the right side. Reach over and into the other side of the panel and the cord should be there. Plug it in and it should work. That's where it is located in mine.

I just went out and looked at mine again. Looking into the power compartment, the cord (on my 39K), enters the compartment very high on the right side of the compartment about three inches from the back side. I had to get down very low and look up with a flashlight into the compartment. It looks like a black flat three wire extension cord. The metal colored enclosure in that compartment on my 39K is the power transfer switch.

I have a c-7 and the switch lights up when you cut the power on. Look behind the switch and you should find the power source.

I think you might be referring to the red water heater switch?

Keep looking. My Cummins manual says the heater should be use when it is 40 F and lower.

Same here. Outlet and plug near top, left part of engine compartment. I have to plug the heater in and then throw the switch when needed.

OK, deucenut, see if this helps. First shot is the plug where the cord is inserted. It is on the side of the box with the sat and phone connections in the electrical bay. The second shows the area on the aft bulkhead of that compartment where the cord enters from the engine compartment. It is the upper left corner behind the metal divider. No mirror will be needed to see this, but the cord may be dangling down behind the divider. If on your 39K there is nothing coming through the bulkhead the cord is likely still bundled up in the engine compartment.

Mine is as described by Bill Burgner except the cord comes through the upper right corner not the upper left.

We may be saying the same thing. Standing outside looking into the electrical bay it is to your upper right. Once in the bay, looking aft, it is in the upper left entering through the aft bulkhead.

Bill - Yep, we are just saying the same but just a bit different.

So today I found the plug. It was hanging down behind the metal enclosure exactly where you guys said it would be. Thanks for the help.
