I had heard Aubrey talk about his plug that he had designed. However, I hadn’t had a chance to actually see it, or try one out, until we met up at Jugfest2009. Knowing that this was the perfect accessory and useful tool to go with the newly designed power cord cover, I sweet talked Aubrey out of one of them. This is a very cool plug that eliminates cold air and insect intrusion into the area between our trailer’s inner and outer fiberglass hulls. Most of us don’t have the knowledge, tools, imagination, or the skill, to design and build such a useful device.

But as Paul Harvey used to say, “Now for the rest of the story”. The plug is light, waterproof and impervious to insect attacks ( no termites can penetrate this one !)

Then there is the Green aspect of this cool plug. It is made from recycled materials ! Enough, you say ? He, he, but, there is more yet ! This plug is machined from a 4x4 plastic post that is commonly available from most building supply chain stores, and it matches the color of our trailer’s exterior finish !

Here is a look at Aubrey’s Plug.

Plug pulled part way out and turned to show the perfect fitting cord slot.

The cord in the center of the plug is military specification parachute cord that passes all of the way through the plug, to assist in removal.

Here is a short video showing how easy it goes in place and the snug insect and wind barrier it provides.

Ain’t it just the best thing since sliced bread !Aubrey, my Cajun Buddy, I don’t think you have any idea, just how clever you are ! It just comes naturally to you ! See you at Jugfest2010.
