Connector on arm of brake pedal

I still haven't found the odb connector under my dash. But I'm still hunting after three days laying on the floor of MH. But I did find a strange switch attached to the arm of the brake pedal which makes a noise ( like a motor) everytime I push it, up or down. It also does it when I depress the brake pedal. This is ths same noise I hear when I start the engin when the key is on the ON position. Can anyone tell me what is this for ?

MH's come in many shapes and sizes. Which one is yours?

It is probably the electric hydraulic pump being activated. It provides power braking when the engine is not running. Nice safety feature if the engine dies while you are moving and need to stop.
I know the Work House W20 and W22 chassis have the pump and I was told the Ford F53 does also.
I don't know about the other Work House chassis.

ODB and Pedal brake arm connector

Finally, after three days of laying on my back on the MH floor looking for ODB connector I found it attached to the dash bracket way up in the wiring system. Thanks to the post who suggested I use a flash light, as soon as I flashed that spot light up there there it was.

As for that switch on the brake pedal arm, you are right, it is for the hydraulic motor for the brakes. Thanks to both of you.
