Default auxiliary fuel line?

Anyone know if the 2007 dodge has an auxiliary fuel line for a heater? Or what to look for to confirm I do?

Would like to add one of these cheap dispel heaters And curious how big of a project itíll be to bite off depending on that auxiliary line

I think it totally depends on the specs of your vehicle if it has what's referred to as an auxiliary fuel tap. You can find the specs out by pulling up the data card for your VIN number. If you search the forum for data card you'll probably find the link to how to do that...

I looked it up, do you know what I'm looking for?

I have this in my data card
FUEL-LEVEL SENSOR FOR AUXILIARY HEATER
FUEL FILTER WITH WATER SEPARATOR
ELECTRICALLY POWERED HOT-AIR AUXILIARY HEATER


from research it appears I need something called a heater booster?
"If you do not have the heater booster, you may have the extra tap already on the fuel tank sending unit? I would not want to tap the main engine fuel line for fear of leaks or other problems."
