Stoopopy Question of the day - Heated Backlight?

I'm going thru my manual to determine if I have any fuse spots available and ran across a 40A Maxi Fuse and according to my manual, it is for a heated backlight. What and where is that?

Sorry for the silly question....the manual doesn't say a thing about what it is.

What year model? I just glanced through my '05 manual and found no such critter. Is it listed in the interior fuse panel or the high-current panel under the hood?

It is a 2004 F350 CC Dually. The 40A Maxi Fuse is on the inside fuse box labeled 104.

So my rear window is heated? Neat! Wonder how it does that....as I don't see any wires, etc in or around it nor are there any switches on the dash for it.

Well that's good news for me then! Since I don't have a rear defroster (not that I can tell at least), having a fuse in that spot tells me the wiring is there. I can tap into that for my transfer tank pump. Life is good!
