Tow pdm 2011 Ventana location

2011 Newmar Ventana no left turn signal to tow. I can not locate the pdm to check the fuse. Freightliner said it is shipped attached to rear near air cleaner to be attached by Newmar. Newmar said they can't tell where they put it but generally near chassis battery or middle passthrough compartment. I checked both locations inside, around and underneath. Found nothing that appears to be a pdm.

Welcome to iRV2 .

Have you had the hatch open to look into the engine compartment from the top?

The wiring length from the main harness will limit the location , and I'm pretty sure that length wouldn't allow it to reach forward, of the differential, to a pass through.

Do you have a chassis manual that would describe the PDC/PDM , or gives a fuse lay out, so at least you know what to look for?

On my 2014 DS and 2019 DS on a Freightliner chassis, it's mounted to the back wall in the rear bay where the batteries are located. It's about the size of a cigar box. It looks like this........
