Just get a splitter for 2 into one or 3 into one depending on how much your planning on plugging in. Something like this would do ya good. In a single pack of course I couldn't find any though. Hope this helps.

Ummm, unless you get a converter from 110v to 12V, you can't. The block heater is 110VAC and the batteries are 12VDC.

Oh sorry, I am new to diesels. I just used that reference off of what we do for Gas engines in AK. Now I am curious about my truck.

I was replying to the OP, but what he meant was one 110VAC cord running to the truck, then splitting off to the battery tender and the block heater.
It makes sense to me now what he was saying.
You can use this and make it your 110VAC in at the truck.
Marinco Mod FYI
Then from there, you run 110VAC Romex wiring, or something that has all three wires in it for safety and tidiness issues. Run that to a junction box somewhere. Then, if close enough, run the block heater cord into that junction box, and run another cord out for your battery tender. THEN from the tender, run your 12VDC wires to a battery. Or one to ground on the frame, other to a battery or cable directly connected to the battery, i.e. the starter cable.
