VMSPc plug connector
#1
Anyone know if there is more than ONE plug in the front of the coach (1998) to connect the VMSPC to? 
My wife (bless her) called VMSPc and they said she needed a different connector - I ordered BOTH of the round plugs just to be sure.  I am not at the coach so she is trying to get the VMSPC hooked up and working today as we will be driving the coach across country day after tomorrow.  
Can anyone confirm that this is the correct plug (square)?  Picture attached...

That sure looks like the one on our 1992 that I have VMSPc plugged into.

I have the square connector as well.

   

12 pin Molex.  

If you are handy, you might be able to order just the connector and crimp tool and make it yourself.

We ended up ordering 3 (count em) three! Plugs from SilverLeaf to be sure we could leave on our trip and have engine monitoring since we have a new engine, trans, etc. Hopefully when I get there tomorrow evening I can figure out the wiring (thanks for the diagram Bill!) and it will all work. It looks like someone or maybe Newell already cut into the wiring for the original round plug and put the square plug in for whatever reason. SilverLeaf said that was a plug for a GAS engine...

I have a round connector near the engine (Cat C12) but have always seen the square ones on our vintage Newells.

i dont believe you ever had a round plug adrian. all the newells from 90 to early 2000's with the detroit engines used the rectangular plugs.

My 99 had a rectangular plug. I still got it somewhere. My Foretravel needed a round plug.

I got the rectangular plug from Silverleaf. So, the person Adrian spoke with was a little off base. Send them a pic of the plug. They had them at one time.
