Block Heater Snafu

Just a little word of advice from your ole' uncle DirtBag for anyone in snowy areas & using their block heater.
Make sure the ends of each plug are reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeal real dry before putting them together......I realize this sounds stupid, but i went to plug mine in today and dried them both off with a towel until they appeared dry and i guess i was wrong, cuz it zapped the holy crap out of me.
On top of that I was standing in a puddle.....yeah, so that part wasn't so smart

Anyway, dry it off...ALOT..Before plugging it in if its wet out....hell put some gloves on if ya have to.
good luck ......i hate electricity

Alot of times i see PSDs with the heater plug sticking out of the truck, driving down the road...really dumb, it seems meanial, but its not fun to get shocked. I always put on the cap and tuck it into the bumper
