Engine light

Hello new to the forum, need some help. I have a 2013 freedom elite with a Check engine light on. The scanner I have does not read or power up on the under dash OBD connection looking at the old fashioned way of reading codes with a paper clip for the GM model I have but the two wires needed to jump and activate the codes via the engine light are not in the connector. Has the diagnostic connection been moved?

ODBII has been a standard since long before your RV was made. Try another scanner.

I may have to purchase a scanner that utilizes an external power supply

If there was one, which I seriously doubt, it would not adhere to the ODBII standard.

I have thought of it and may have to, I don’t have a lot of faith in the kids they hire theses days we lost a lot of experience at the counter over that last few years.
