OBD Scanner Port on 2000 Intruder

Where is the port for plugging in a OBD scanner on a 2000 Damon Intruder with a F53 Chassis? I never looked for it because I didn't have a scanner. I am looking to get a scanner. I have read that this RV model uses OBD2. Can anyone give me a little advice on getting started on this project?

The issue of , coach manufacturers NOT relocating the OBD II connector to a visible location; as the dash was installed ; as required by the federal regulations is so bad that Ford issued this bulletin.

OBD-2 Port on F-53

Thanks. I will look on right side of column. Hopefully Damon connected a jumper so I don't need to disassemble steering column to connect a scanner.

Hopefully you find your OBDII port attached to the steering column. I was told by Freightliner that my J1939 port was also located there, it was not. During the coach assembly some tech tucked it in behind a panel that was part of the dash. I located it after standing on my head for two days. If yours isn't on the steering column, look in every nook and cranny under the dash for it. Hope you find it.

OBD-2 Scanner for 2000 F-53 Damon Intruder

Thanks for the help. I found it. Mine had been bolted to the steering column right side as shown in the photo on the Ford bulletin. The two fasteners had been removed and the port was hanging down and readily accessible (once I found it). Now I need to get a scanner. Someone on one of these forum pages had recommended the Scanguage-2. It looked like it could be used as a readout for engine performance during driving as well as read and clear codes. Any recommendations?
