I have three 6 pin connectors near drivers seat labeled Engine, Trans, and ABS. I also have one 9 pin in rear at engine. Do I need to create a custom cable to combine the 6 pins to a 9 pin to get the most info? Adding pic links to help explain.

What year is your MH? You can't use the rear connector as it's too far and too much metal. Others have used an extension cable into the MH. For the front ones, you'll want to use the Engine and hope the Transmission and Brakes are also on that bus otherwise you won't get any of that info. You can't really combine them. Unfortunately the front is a 6-pin and the rear is a 9-pin. My guess is that the rear had all three connected while the fronts are separated. Have you queried the IRV2 forums? They might have some good insight - http://www.irv2.com/foru...nt-option-425748-37.html

Mark, Thanks for the reply. The motorhome is a 2004 Monaco Safari Panther with a CAT engine. I will order the 9 pin and look at the wiring diagram to see if easier to extend from rear connection or tap into the front connectors.

You can get a 6-pin to 9-pin convert cable like this one on Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/M...708-J1939/dp/B076R1Z937.

Just be careful to the converter cable you get as the Green adapter will plug into a green connector but a Black adapter will not.
