I read the manual I found the block heater chord. Really? only about 18 inches long and up against the firewall so you have to open the hood, leave it open while connected exposing the engine to the elements and then wrap it all up and tuck it away again behind the battery using a flashlight in the dark just to keep the engine warm? Every time! What ever happened to having it stick out the front grill like every other truck with a block heater? Did no one at Chev think about using it? The manual says use of an extention chord can cause a fire so they give you about 18 inches...... it also states not to close the hood on the chord for obvious reasons. Really? Anyone else having this issue? How are you getting around it ?
