2004 F250 6.0PS block heater

Greetings, all

Looking for a little quick help to get my F250 through the coming days of -25 -30 degree weather here in Alberta.

Went to plug the block heater in last night, and it sparked and shorted and actually melted the plug - glad I was standing right there to pull the power just as it happened. Not comfortable splicing a new plug onto the old cord - so want to replace it. I must be looking in the wrong place - because I can't find the block heater anywhere. I am a rank amateur when it comes to this kind of stuff, so am either looking in entirely the wrong place, or am looking right at it and not realizing it.

Can anyone point me in the right direction - either on my truck or to a post here in the forums? I'm hoping I can even find a replacement cord on a Sunday. Last night was cold, tonight is supposed to be even colder.

Thanks in advance.
