Default Unknown 120v cord in bay

I was doing some tinkering as I make fixes and upgrades to the new toy this weekend and noticed something I had missed before. In the shore cable bay there is a 120v socket which I saw before but there is also a cord with a normal 3 prong plug on it dangling in the back of the bay that someone had wrapped masking tape around. Would I assume this may be a block heater and the outlet I noticed is where you'd plug it in?

Almost forgot... this is in my 2008 TM T40c.

Yes that sounds like the block heater outlet and cord on my 2007. Since the block heater has a separate 120 volt breaker under the refrigerator where all my 120 breakers are located -- it would seem a simple matter to plug a small nightlight or similar into the outlet and turn the breaker on and off to verify that it is indeed that circuit.

I leave my block heater unplugged most of the time, since I also use this outlet in that bay to connect to my float charger which I added to my coach and is located directly opposite on the curb side that provides maintenance for my engine start batteries when parked in my space for long periods...
