Engine Died after 5th wheel Blowout

I have an 06 F350 with Towboss, just under 53,000 miles and I'm owner from new...
I was travelling back from Key West yesterday in dry, windy weather towing our 18,000 lb 5th wheel, while overtaking a semi we had a tire blow on the 5th wheel, semi heard it and backed off allowing me to get to the hard shoulder quickly, as we came to a stop the motor died and would not restart.
Turns over very strong, plently of diesel in tank, was running good for over 250 miles and were 80 miles from destination campground.
Had noticed what I thought was a strong headwind about 20 miles before the incident, was having to apply more pressure on pedal and turbo was working hard, when we stopped wind was not as strong as I thought.
No trouble codes from DTC reader.

Had Truck and 5th wheel towed to destination campground and now need to get truck fixed, anyone have any ideas.

When cranking over strong theres no movement on oil pressure gauge, and no attempt to fire,, when truck was up on flatbed had good look underneath, no signs of any leakage of any description.

Have read other postings and seems to lean towards STC blowout, but not sure what the actual symptoms of that would be.

Any advice gratefully received

The STC blowout is a good possibility. Being an 06 I would have the truck towed to the closest ford dealer and let the warranty take care of it

Have you checked for the obvious blown fuse...??

I know I am a Mad Inventor, but I took my Fuel Delivery Fuse (Number 5 under the hood) out, and ran two female spade terminals to the spot and remote mounted the fuse, and ran it to a disconnect waterproof switch hidden...

Truck cranks over just fine, only no starteee.... No stealee..

I don't know, but in that situation it would be the first place I myself would look. A blowout a big bang shock, maybe something just as simple as you dropped a fuse on one of the engine controls in the fuel delivery... Worth a look.
