Block heater problem
So my truck hates the cold more then I do, so all winter long she is plugged in when the temps drop below freezing just to make it start easier. Well I got back from NYC last night, PBR was well worth it, and plugged her in and this morning went to start her and I noticed that the glow plugs were on for a while. So I turned on my Six gun and looked and the engine temp was 33. Usually it is in the 80's with the block heater. After moving my truck and parking it again I plugged it back in and checked the outlet. The GFIC had popped. So i reset it and went back into the house . An hour later I came out and the coolant temp was warming up so I went back in. Just now I went out and the GFIC was popped again. This time no matter what I do it pops as soon as I plug the truck in. I have changed extension cords and have gone to other outlets with the same out come. What could be doing this all of a sudden a split wire? I really don't want to have to call the dealer, at $85/hr it is going to be expensive. Anyone
