PCM location?

We have a 2007 Seabreeze on Ford F53 chassis. Have ordered a 5 star tune and am trying to locate the PCM plug/port for downloading the tune. Not sure what to look for, but here's what I see:
1. there is a small black box mounted on the firewall about 2 inches off the floor(about 3" wide X 2-1/2 high x 1-1/2" deep) behind the brake pedal with a white plug(1-1/2" wide) with about 6 wires going into the bottom of it.
2. the other plug I see is on the lower part of the steering column directly below the plastic shroud cover which is an orange color male push in plug into a black female connector(about 1-1/4" wide)
Have looked in the engine compartment but don't see anything there.
Does anyone know which is the correct plug/port to use? Thanks for your help

I have a 2003 Sea Breeze and mine was located above the steering column and taped up and VERY hard to see. You need to lay flat on your back and have a good flashlight to find it but once located you can untape it and pull it down to where it's easy to get too. I pulled mine out and mounted it under the dash where I can plug and unplug my 5 star tune anytime I need too. Hope yours is in the same place. Good luck and happy RVing!

Thanks for the responses. SteveL1948-I got both your posts but haven't responded yet because I haven't had time to get the shrouds off the steering column to check it out. Will get to this project tomorrow(just got the 5 star tuner today) so will update further on progress in a day or so. Thanks again for the help.

PCM location

After 2 more hrs of researching, I finally found the OBD port! It was located slightly right of the brake pedal and about knee height hidden between 2 metal braces that were about 1.75 inches apart. The plug was mounted vertically on its side with a black plastic cover with "OBD" on it! Sounds easy but its dark in there and I was looking a lot higher up and expected that it would be mounted horizontally instead of vertically.
Got the 5 star tune loaded and it was pretty easy-alot easier than finding the OBD port! Won't have it out for a drive til early Oct so we'll see how it runs then.
Thanks to all for your help and comments

Great Viper! Glad you found it! I haven't used my unit but one time since installing the 5 star tune but did see slight improvement but have read on here from others that it takes a few times driving for the 5 star to actually get tuned. Safe travels to you!
