Has anyone thought to "Insulate" that portion that's left exposed to the freezing weather? I would think that the black foam slip-on pipe wrap would work. It comes in a commercial grade closed-cell version in varying diameters. Thinking you could slip it on & remove it before stowing the cord. Alternatively, you could wrap an electric pipe heat strip around the exposed portion. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
Insulating the cord will do no good unless you are drawing enough power to make the cord warm up. The insulations function is to keep heat in (actually all it does is slow down the heat leving the warm surface. If there is no heat source to warm the cord, the insulated cord will assume the ambient temperature and be just as stiff as uninsulated.
