Location of PDC

I’m installing a Garmin dash-cam my ‘18 MADP. I need connections to both ACC and BATT. I see that the electrical board in the compartment under the driver’s seat has connections that are labeled Customer PDC ACC and Customer PDC BATT.

I’m thinking it may be best to power accessories from the referenced “Customer Power Distribution Center”. Any ideas where it’s located? I wasn’t easily able to trace these wires.

On my Dutch Star on a Spartan chassis, it’s in the right rear compartment where the batteries are. It’s a plastic cylinder with fuses inside.

That’s the Spartan PDC.

There‘s a “Customer PDC” somewhere where things like the dash accessories would get power from. The wires attached to the board mention the “Customer PDC”.

Or perhaps this is the Customer PDC that the wire label refers too and the other end of the wire is connected to the Spartan PDC ?? In which case, any additional accessories must be powered off of the lugs that I have circled instead of getting power under the dash or elsewhere.

I used power from the box that controls the front TV. Easy, close spot to add a connection that is switching for a dash cam since I mounted the dash cam pretty high and don't see with the front shade down a bit.
