Block Heater?

I have a 120v breaker for a block heater but I can't find any control related to a block heater.

If I indeed have one, shouldn't there be a switch or lamp?

Thanks.

Mine is in the back on the bedroom wall. Regular looking
switch, but with a red light above the switch that should
light when it is in the on position.

My 2000 Magna has a 15 amp breaker in the breaker panel in the bedroom. There is a switch in the driver's left armrest also. I've never turned the block heater on but assume I would have to turn the breaker on and then turn on the switch on the armrest. I will add that if I turn on the Hurricane furnace, the engine temperature will get up to about 105 degrees so If I run the Hurricane I see no need for the block heater.

I have a rear panel but nothing related to a block heater. I also have the panel by the driver, but again, nothing related to a block heater.

I thought there was a check-valve that kept the Hurricane Heater from warming the block?

There is however some people remove it. It is a "Y" valve on the inside of the frame on the driver's side. I really don't want the Hurricane to heat the motor as it is one huge chunk of cold steel and wastes a lot of diesel keeping it warm instead of heating the coach.
