Default Block heater location on the 60S Detroit

Where on the engine is the block heater located on the 60S Detroit? It's a 95WB bird.

Also I have 2 switches identified for the block heater I assume over the driver's head is the Aquahot block heater switch & the switch in the lower kitchen cabinet is the electric unit. Then there is a breaker for the electric in the breaker box in the bedroom. Thanks

I have a switch above the driver for the AH pump that heats the engine coolant. Then there is a switch in the galley under the sink that goes to a relay under the rear bed that actuates the electric block heater. There is also a breaker in the 120v panel for the electric block heater, as well as another breaker for the electric element in the AH. To find the electric block heater, follow the flat black cord in the engine compartment to the heater element on the drivers side of the engine block.
