Fuse 22 Blowing

It is late and I have had a long day. I believe I have a fuel heater problem. (Blowing fuse 22) I've read through many threads and I am going to find this fuel heater wire and disconnect it in the morning.( Hopefully problem solved.) So, my real question is: Is the heater a dealer item? I was unable to find it on napas web site. And about how much is it ($$$)?
Thanks, Jesse
Note: Chiltons manual sucks!

I'm behind the new lowes in The BrookWater development.

Ok, I'm am looking at the fuel bowl on the drivers side. Down where I can only squezze two fingers. There are two wires. I am assuming that I should be removing the top one. So I attemped to remove it. I tried to use needle nose pliers and a screw driver. Before I commit to creating any damage am I doinng this right?

theres a thread here somehwhere on how to update the heater element to a newer version. Unless it gets really cold, I'd just leave it unplugged.

Yes, I understand. I am just making sure I am unpluging the correct wire and that it just unplugs ( doesn't have a funcky twist Or something). If this is not the reason for my fuse blowing I don't want to break a good part.
