    Yup daily. It's a huge recall, they were installed with every truck in parts of the country.

    400 watts isn't worth the hassle installing one. I bought a Katts magnetic pan heater and it didn't even get hot to the touch, returned that useless junk.
    Has anyone cut in an in-line coolant hose heater? My tractor has a 1500w and it's just a simple pipe fitting with a couple nipples.

    That said I'm in Ontario and if it's that cold for a few day I'll likely just take the wife's Civic.

    Thankfully it hasn’t got cold enough here for me to even find the cord.

    On a recent service I asked my dealer about the block heater problems and they looked at me like I had 3 heads

    Dang this is insane! Glad you're getting a replacement taco. How about the damage to the house?
