I don't have the same MH, but mine is mounted on the side of the steering column. Might check there.

Go to the brake pedal. You will find a plastic conduit on the firewall directly behind the brake pedal. Follow the conduit upward. It will split. One part goes to the fuel pump reset switch. The other goes to the connector.

Take the lower cover off of the steering column it will be on the right hand side, Had to unscrew mine so I could get to it easier in the future. Now I just reach under the cover and pull it out when I need it.

Often hard to find, but it's there. I had to remove a plastic piece under the steering column to find it. Once found, I can plug into it without removing the plastic piece.

OBD = On Board Diagnostic A cofde reader can be plugged in to read a fault code in the electronics of engine, transmission, etc.

Kept Man - this is from Wikipedia

On-board diagnostics
(OBD) is an automotive term referring to a vehicle's self-diagnostic and reporting capability. OBD systems give the vehicle owner or repair technician access to the status of the various vehicle subsystems. The amount of diagnostic information available via OBD has varied widely since its introduction in the early 1980s versions of on-board vehicle computers. Early versions of OBD would simply illuminate a malfunction indicator light or "idiot light" if a problem was detected but would not provide any information as to the nature of the problem. Modern OBD implementations use a standardized digital communications port to provide real-time data in addition to a standardized series of diagnostic trouble codes, or DTCs, which allow one to rapidly identify and remedy malfunctions within the vehicle.

By law, the OBD connector must be within 18 inches of the steering column. Ypu may need to remove some decorative panels around the column, but it us there. It may have a plug covering the connector, mine did.

When I get home, I will attach a picture of mine in my rig. It is just to the right of the steering column.

Here's where mine is attached, (OBD) yours will probably be located pretty much in the same location. This picture was taken with the front dash removed.

Here is a picture of mine. Pretty much just as legryz said. Mine is fully assembled so you can get perspective.

Just to right of steering column and as high as the bottom lip of the dash. I don't have to remove anything on my 2000 Allegro Bay but it is tucked under there so you can't see it without looking up.
