Just to update after 6 years of using this mod:

The plug-in mod has endured without problems for the last six years of daily commuting. The paint wore off the receptacle but I've not been motivated to repaint it and I've gotten used to seeing it lighter grey. The plug prongs remain shiny bright -- like new and the door works perfectly and spring remains firm. Nothing has come loose. About two years ago, I re-coated the wires behind the bumper with liquid electrical tape simply to retain the water proofing. Everything has been just perfect and maintenance free.
