Starter relay location (not starter Solenoid)

I have a Freightliner chassis with a Cat 3126B turbo and the Freightliner folks have always been a GREAT help......and the info they give is usually, but not always, intirely accurate! For instance.....they told me that my starter relay (not the starter solenoid) was located on a metal plate on the outside of the chassis frame opposite the starter. I searched and searched, down under the coach, but could not locate it! Actually, on my coach, it is on a metal plate just in front of the engine, mounted on the front side of the opening under the bed. It took a while to find it. You can read this discussion under the CAT ENGINE thread. Rook

We have a 2001 Tradewinds 39 foot and our starter relay is on the frame "passenger side" I know because I've had to change mind out 4 times. Sorry, Freightliner was wrong but usually they are right on the money.
