I am really not concerned about mounting at this time. I'd like to know if it will work (as in plug in & function) on a 1995 Ford chassis.

If the cable is not long enough get a cat-5 cable and adapter to hook the two cables together. Go to the link in my post about the mount they carry all of the stuff you need.

I have my Scan Gauge II in my RV, I bought an extension cable from the people I bought the mount from. I can plug it into the plug under the hood and yes it does work on my 1995 Ford F-250 XLT P/U.

You need to scroll down towards the bottom of the web page to find the Scan Gauge mounts.

The plug you need is for OBD II. OBD is On Board Diagnostic. The "II" reflects where the government mandated that all plugs and functions be the same. Prior to that, different manufacturers all had their own plug configurations for OBD.

My 1995 Safari TREK, GM chassis, did not have an OBD II plug as the chassis was probably built sometime in 1994.

Thumbs up

thanks for the tip - I just ordered one from Amazon for $88 ($118 - $30 credit for signing up for an Amazon Chase Credit Card). My brother in law has been using it for over a year to monitor current and average MPG; RPM; engine water temperature; and check engine light codes. While it doesn't increase your fuel efficency directly - it makes you aware of how fast you are burning fuel to allow you to change your driving habits to get better fuel economy. He also suggests making sure your tires are properly inflated; start off slowly and gradually build up your speed (instead of a jack rabbit start); putting the vehicle in neutral when driving down steep hills/mountains; no unnecessary idling of the vehicle.
I hope this helps

Perhaps its only me, but the words 'JACKRABBIT STARTS ' & 'MOTORHOME' don't seem to fit in the same sentence!

if you buy your SG II from OEMY, he will ship it to you with all the applicable ''x gauge'' codes for your rv installed. you can install the x gauge codes yourself with help, but it is a pita.
