In addition to the visible Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on a tag in the window/cab/door, Dodge puts the VIN in another place on trucks.  (At least, they did on older trucks.)  Where is it exactly?

Hint:  This is the Dodge VIN, which identifies the chassis/motor/etc., on motorhomes where the coach manufacturer assigned another, non-Dodge, VIN.

I think I found one on the the left frame rail under the cab. If not I think it was close to that spot, has been a long time.

You got it, Rico.  (Sorry, been busy working on house plans & Christmas.)

In the late 60's and early 70's, the chassis VIN is stamped into the outside of the right (passenger-side) front frame rail, more or less over the front axle.

Note:  Apparently, Mother Mopar moved the VIN to left (driver-side) frame rail sometime in the mid-70's.  (At least, that's the feedback I've gotten from various people with 'newer' vehicles.

Your turn, Rico.
