Yes I believe the trouble started after Gorden Gerbing turned the business over to his kid that started having the stuff made in China, lots and lots of companies have gone broke because of issues from having stuff made in China and other countries. If I ever need any new heated gear I will very likely buy from Gordon's but with him being over 80 who knows what might happen in the future.

Let me know if you need a male or female plug. And for info for all - you can buy the plugs off of eBay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/10pcs-Black-...8AAOSwHMJYK8So

Thanks for posting those very helpful links, I had no idea those were even available or I might have bought some when I was hooking up the 2010 heated seat to my 02 wing.
