No fuel pressure 1994 Newmar F53 460 Ford

Need help, I'm new at this so hopefully I'm writing this in the correct place I have a 1994 Newmar Kountry Star. It's a F53 Ford chassis, 38 foot long with a 460 engine. The unit won't start. Not getting fuel. The fuel pump and EEC relays are functioning correctly. I need to trace the fuel pump circuit back to the tank. I'm a GM man, and have not worked much at all on Fords. Could anyone tell me where the inertia switch is? I don't even know what the inertia switch even looks like. I'm also looking for the factory ALDL connector.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You
Ray Marshall

It's my understanding the emergency fuel shut off switch should be OK if the fuel pump is in fact running.

Inertia switch

Ford inertia switch is about 2x2 with a red button on the top about the size of a dime.
Can't help on location. I would guess maybe to the left of the steering column area, side wall in the same area.
Have you tried hitting the fuel tank with a rubber mallet? Pump may be locked.
You should be able to hear the pump run when cycling the ignition on and off.
