Engine Block Heater?

I have a 1997 36' Country Coach Intrigue with the Cummins 6CTA. I have this receptacle in my engine bay on the passenger side of the engine. Is this my engine block heater connection?

Sounds logical. Did you follow the wire to see where it goes?

Sorta kinda did. Appears to run forward up to the right corner (passenger side) of the engine bay, then runs across the front of the bay compartment to the driver's side and then ???? I have not crawled under to follow the lead any further. From what I have read the block heater is generally installed just forward of the oil filter which is on the driver's side.

Might be easier to locate the block heater......follow the power cord from it to see where it goes, if different, then finish following the plug wire you posted to determine what it is.......I take it you never used your block heater?

I have not had the need to use it....YET. This is my first diesel pusher and I have only owned it for a couple of months. I am a guy who wants to understand everything on the coach. This one came with a box full of manuals on virtually everything and although the Country Coach owner's manual tells me the coach was equipped with a block heater they give no details. I am assuming this is a simple plug in an extension cord and let it heat for a couple of hours kind of deal.

Yes it is. FYI, the coolant temp will go from 30 degrees to 80 degrees in 30 minutes as measured on my Silverleaf.. No need to run the heater for hours and hours
