Have you read the owner's manual &/or diesel brochure? The '92 edition says "...the heater should be plugged in at least 3 hours prior to starting. The use of the heater for longer periods of time will not cause the engine to exceed the thermostat setting." That implies that the heater has an internal t'stat which will cause it to cycle off once it reaches its design temperature. It's a 1KW heater, which means it draws 9.1 Amps @110VAC.
