runs but no power was blowing # 30 fuse

Ok so now i have a new problem I was driving my car hauler which is a 99 f350 drw 2wd 6spd 7.3 .I was on my way home and the truck just shut off ... checked the fuses and number # 30 .. 30 amp fuse was blown . I change the fuse and it blew as soon as i turn on the key. i came on here and read about the fuel heater issues but it still blew with all that unplugged so i dissconected the main harness via the 10mm bolt . So I put in a new fuse and it did not blow ..I went ahead and removed the engine harness and visually inspect for chaffing or breaks .. I did not spot anything so I reconnected it one thing at a time while somebody listened for the popping fuse and it never did . now the truck starts up just fine just has no power what so ever could something on that circuit be causing itt to have no power .. levels are good truck ran great before fuse blew

Not calling you dumb but are you sure you unhooked the correct wire.
It will be the one on the bottom part of fuel filter housing if I remember correctly.
I have heard of people unhook the engine oil temp sensor.

I unhooked the lower one but everything is hooked back up now.. I hooked the harness up one thing at a time to see what was blowing the fuse and it is fine just no power

Red,
Could you explain your fix a little further? What connector are you referring to and how was it at fault?

Thanks man.

when we were putting the engine harness back on my friend pulled on that side to much .. it came unclipped from the plug so it was only running on one side the engine ... we push it back on till it clicked into place and it is back to normal

So did you figure out what was originally blowing your fuse. I'm thinking you may have moved a wire that was chaffed through and shorting to the engine or chassis somewhere. When you moved it you pulled it away from where it was shorting out.
