Location of my OBD connector

I have a 1999 holiday rambler with a ford v1o & we think it is a f550 chassis. We can't find the obd connector so we can scan codes. Can anyone help us locate the obd connector? Thanks.

If it a Class A the chassis is F53. The ODBII connector is on the right side of the steering column, not as easy to find as in a car and may have a cap on it. Look with a good light, it may be try wrapped to other wires.

I too was looking for the connector on Monday. Jumped on this site and had my answer in one minute.

It is behind the plastic trim around the steering column.

It is difficult to see cuz it is covered by a black plastic cap.

I found mine on a 2008 Wind Sport and it was mounted on the side of the steering column and behind the dash and other plastic. Had to remove the top of the dash to get it out where I could plug into it. It is now mounted under the dash like it should have been.

For the ford chassis, I think the v10 in 1999 was the first for obdII. For normal cars and trucks , it was 1996.

I had to pull a trim panel off under the column to find mine. Once found with a bit of finger contortion I can connect without removing the panel.

In theory it's supposed to be on the right side of the steering column. As stated before, it may have a cap on it which could make it a little harder to find. Good
Iuck.

If it is a gas engine then by Fed law it has to be OBDII compatible. As earlier stated all cars went ODBII in 1996. Trucks did not fall under the same rules because there are fewer and would thus not effect the emissions as would all the cars/SUV's etc. I think by 1999 all truck chassis (F-53) were OBDII.
But maybe they complied in 2000 or even later. If you can't find an ODBII connecter then you will find an OBDI connector which is smaller and I think only has around 8-10 connectors. It's been so long I can't remember. I do know that it looks like a " T ".

Yes, 1999 and later are ODBII compliant. The connector will be on the right of the steering column as already mentioned.

Another good trick to locate the OBD 2 is to use a 12-12 mirror on the floor under the dash it sure helps find that darn thing
