Thanks! That'll be just about every newer Ford delivered "up north".

My 2017 F-250 SD didn't come with the block heater and I've been checking into adding it on. Guess I'd better wait and see what Ford comes up with on their fix!

Never gets cold enough where you live to warrant it IMO.

My wife’s uncle in PA would use it so that his truck would blow heat right away on his short drive into work.

That's why I was wanting to add it to mine. Truck started very easy last winter when it was -10 degrees here. But it takes at least 10 miles of driving before temp gauge moves at all! I was hoping it would help heating up quicker, but I'll wait to see what they come up with to fix the fire problem.

Huh. Our F350... with a block heater... is due for delivery the first week of January. So do suppose they sealed the connector “the right way” last week at the plant, or do I need to immediately give it back to the dealer as part of the recall? LOL.

I plug my 2012 F-250 diesel in when it gets below 20 degrees here. I never really noticed that it warmed up any faster when it was plugged in.

Well, I initially read this out of curiosity, since I didn't have a block heater on my truck. Or so I thought. I never really thought about it being in the Houston area. Well, I checked my window sticker (will verify on the truck itself if I can remember to), and whaddya know. I do have the block heater. I have never had one on any of my previous trucks, and never gave it a thought. Until curiosity got me again. I'll have to check with my dealer now about the recall. I'm due for my first oil change anyway.
