Will Oil Pan Heater throw a code on 07' LBZ like Block Heater

Whats everyones experience with this, I'm trading my 01' in for a 07' classic and I'm a big block heater fan, I like heat before I leave my driveway. Thoughts? Also what about a transmission pan heater? Same problem? or not?

I have an oil pan heater and transmisson pan heater on my truck. I have never had any codes or anomilies using them. My truck starts right up and goes into gear with no problems. I have plugged my truck in at +20 F and below and have never had a code from using the block heater, oil pan heater, transmission pan heater, or the 2 battery blankets. I normally have warm air after 10 minutes of warming up in the morning even when the truck is cold soaked at -25 F.

Also has any one used a pan heater from Kennedy on a 2007 classic LBZ? The engine pan is not flat(It's U shaped) and is blocked by a cross brace which I'm sure you can remove for install? Experience with this anyone?

Theres a thread down on the allison board that says that you shouldnt use a trans pan heater. Something about the warm oil in the pan cant circulate because the oil is cool in the cooler so, all the hot oil in the pan (from the heater, and your engine using the trans to help warm up the oil in the pan gets too hot. I guess according to that thread you can get a reflash (thats not free) to not use the trans as part of the engine warm up. I wouldnt use a pan heater on the trans due to this.

I have not had a ny reflashes on my truck and have plugged the block heater on before 0 degrees (actually as high as 29 have plugged my truck in w/no problems. I dont think itll hurt anything.

I have been driving trucks for years and only thing I can say is to unplug before starting motor. Reason being is the pump will start when you crank the motor over and suck some water away from the block heater before it is replaced. I had a engine teacher take a block heater stickit in a 5 gal bucket of water and pull it out. It exploded very quickly w/in 2 seconds so now i make sure its unplugged before cranking. I know many people who leave it plugged in when they start it w/no problems but who knows.
