The "standard" Diagnostic Plugs are a Round Deutsch plug with 6 or 9 Pin Positions. There are Diagnostic Connectors in the Engine Compartment and "upfront" near the Steering Column generally with a protective cap. The Round Deutsch plugs were chosen at the time the Electronic Engine Standard was developed, so you will always have one of these Plugs when you have an Electronic Diesel Engine. Not all of the Positions will have Terminals (the Metal Contacts). Typically, the 6 Pin Plugs have 4 Terminals, the 9 Pin Plugs have 4 Terminals and with later coaches, they have 7 Terminals.
The Silverleaf VMSpc lets you program audible alarms based on any engine parameter. For example, you can set it to play any WAV file (grab a microphone and record your own!) when your road speed reaches a certain point. Have it played once, once a minute, or continuously.
And you can create a "Tank Minder", which provides a miles-to-empty calculation based on your tank size and fuel economy. VMSpc lets you enter correction factors to compensate for a poorly calibrated engine. You can even program gauges to read in metric if you desire.
Professional engineers use the Silverleaf VMS pc software to test their vehicle designs. Now you can use the same tools to test your coach.
