Potted relay?

Does anyone know what this is or does, it appears to be some sort of potted relay. It is in the battery bay of my ACE, I assume most of the ACE and AXIS have this. It may be related to the battery relay maybe to connect the house to chasiss batteries or something to do with the generator?? Numbers are too skewed to get a good reading to search online. Hoping someone may have a clue

my first thought would be a temp sensor for a inverter or other battery management. i dont know axis or ace units. also could be the front/rear auto-level sensor; i have a "potted relay" under the bed with the same red/black/white wires coming from it.

Looks like it might be your BIRD. It opens and closes the Trombetta to connect the chassis battery to the coach battery bank.

That's Cheating... You can't answer your own Questions?
How do we know you didn't have the answer... Before you asked the Question ?

Sometimes its easier to talk through something than just figure it out--you discover the answer in the middle of voicing the question

I actually found the answer when doing an image search for it, it was a pic actually from a thread on this forum.
