I have a 2015 E450 Class C Chateau that has a plug sticking out of the dash between the bottom of the dash and engine cover right below the radio. Does anyone have one or know what it is? I’m the second owner and original owner didn’t know what it was either. They only had it about 3 years and barely used it and knew very little about anything about the coach. So no help there. Manufacturer says they think it’s for plugging in an external navigation system.
Any idea Since?

What does connector look like?
Could be for brake controller if six or so pins.
Could be OBD connector if 16 or so pins

Well it looks like a 4 pin and it does have backup cameras but that works on the radio screen and it’s definitely not an OBD Connecter.

Brake controller! Does the connector look like one of these?
Look around the are for signs of where previous owner may have mounted a controller.

If the original owner didn't know what it was, and the Manufacturer didn't seem to know what it was, Who the he-- put it there? [emoticon]

Nope not a brake controller and it doesn’t look like the one I the link you provided. Thor says its probably for an external navigation system but not sure.

A picture would go a long way. Shot's in the dark aren't very productive.
