f350 loses power and stalls

Well my 96 f350 stalled on friday going up a hill pulling my trailer.......the day after I got it. the trailer doesn't weight much, its a 70s camper that's been gutted so I'm not thinking that played any factor in this. one thing I've noticed is that even if I lay my foot into the skinny pedal I cant make it smoke at all. So as I'm coming up the hill it loses power and dies. I try starting it and it sounds like it wants to fires every couple cranks but nothing. I change the CPS......and nothing. I also change the fuel filter and after cranking it a couple times I check the fuel filter and it's still dry. At this point I'm thinking fuel pump. Any suggestions? I've been told this truck only has the mechanical fuel pump at the motor but a shop I called insists that there is one at the motor and one in the tank.
Thanks!

I'm not sure exactly but I had only gone 100 miles or so since the front tank was filled. I believe each tank holds 19 gallons. the fuel gauge doesn't work so my plan was to go about 200 miles on each tank then fill

The guy at the shop said he was messing with the fuel lines a little and he got it to almost start but it was pouring whitish grayish smoke from the turbo. not the exhaust but it was coming from the turbo itself.

I'm thinking the smoke was just some turbo leak. i know, turbo leak isnt good but it shouldnt keep it from starting. there is no smoke at all from exhaust. I unplugged what I "think" was the fuel bowl heater any tried to start. I also unplugged what I "think" was the ICP and tried to start. nada from either. The tach reads rpms, looks like about 200 or so, possibly a little more or less. fuse #4 was blown though I couldn't figure what fuse number 4 actually does. so I replaced it an nothing. The fuel bowl was still empty so I fill it to the top with diesel and put it back together and try cranking. nothing. I do get a WTS light so I'm thinking IDM at this point. any input?
