New from Colorado

Hey guys. New to the forum and new to diesel trucks.
I just purchased a 1999 F-250 crew cab, long box to tow my 24' enclosed race car trailer.

The truck is a one owner, bone stock, California truck with 160k miles. It is in near showroom condition inside and out.

Currently I'm working on a new brake controller/wiring and new trailer wiring because it was hacked up for a 5th wheel and ripped out by the dealer. I also need to install a block heater since I live in Colorado.

A few of my race buddy's swear by DP tuner, so I'll probably get a towing tune.

Thanks!

Glad to have you - to the ORG!!

I went back and re-read your post - You should have a block heater. Look above the oil filter on the driver's side of the engine. Just about that is where the heater is. Should have a cord attached to it - may have to follow it. My plug end was behind the bumper.
