Where is my OBC?

I have a 2011 Winnebago Vista 35F and I need to be get the numbers off my OBC so I can order a Five Star tuning set-up. I found the plug under the dash but where in the world did Winnebago hide the darn box? I have been all over the MH inside and out with no luck. I could really use some help folks.

It's been 2 years now so the memory is a bit foggy. I had the same problem on my F53 and never did find it. Somehow Mike figured it out. If I remember correctly, he sent the scanner which pulled the info he needed, then he emailed me the file to upload to the ECM. Anyway, call Mike and I'm sure he can help find it or get you going like he did me.

Thanks for the tip Cylon. I've got an chassis illustration from Ford that shows it mounted on the drivers side of the frame but I'll be damned if I can find it anywhere. I'll call Five Star today and talk to Mike. I hope he can help. I'm way past the age where I enjoy crawling around under a motorhome.

On mine it is inside just to the left of the brake on the firewall.

That's where Mike said mine was, but after 30 mins on the phone and discussing every aspect of what it looks like, it was never found and we both gave up.

Mine was on the left side of the steering column, near the base. There should be a 1"X2" label on the left side of it.

On my 99 it was in the same place as Dunners left side of the steering column near the base.
