Unhappy Wattage of Diesel engine block heater F-350?

My guy, with the diesel, is on his way to spend Xmas with me. Sub-zero temps here in No. NM.
URGENTLY need to know actual wattage draw of the engine block heater on the 2002 Ford F-350 diesel....to know whether we can safely plug it in to my rather limited rental house electrical service. I've received wildly conflicting answers to this question from friends....and have tried net search with no results that include this spec.
My great gratitude to anyone who can answer my question ASAP authoritatively!

1000w is lower than most full size hairdryers, toasters, irons, & coffeemakers (all usually 1500w "maxed out")

Shouldn't be a problem, doesn't have to be plugged-in ALL the time, if you were really concerned you could unplug the truck when you used those other appliances.

1000 watts should draw 8.3 amps if that helps.
