I HAVE LEFT MINE ON FOR DAYS. I HAVE 2 300'S, I FIND THAT WHEN IT IS BELOW 10 DEG. F, I HAD BETTER USE THE BLOCK HEATERS. MY OLDER ONE WILL NOT START WELL IF IT IS BELOW FREEZING (POOR COMPRESSION OVER 350k MILES). I FIND THAT TURNING THE GLOW PLUGS ON MORE THAN ONCE WHEN IT IS REAL COLD HELPS. IF IT DOES NOT START RIGHT OFF, TRY ONCE MORE & THEN FORGET IT, YOU WILL JUST RUN THE BATTERY DOWN. YOU HAVE BATTERY OR OTHER PROBLEMS. I HAVE BEEN TOLD TO START THEM UNPLUGGED TO AVOID THERMAL SHOCK TO THE HEATERS, BUT I HAVE NEVER BROKE ONE YET.
