Items found that are unknown

My thought here is to post items that many of us don't know what are, in hopes of finding what they are and do. If I titled it right I'm hoping we all can get a lot of use out of this. My first item is below.

It is found in the area under the bed along with the converter, breaker box, water pump, but this one is so far a mystery to me. It is the black box to the left in the picture.

Just looking at the way it is wired I would say it is house battery disconnect.

What a great idea, I will have multiple contributions to this thread. And I would agree, that looks like a disconnect.

That is the latching relay that energizes when you activate the USE/STORE switch (coach battery disconnect).

Sorry...I should have elaborated...we took delivery on our 2016 Axis 24.1 in January...we had an electrical problem...long story short...after MUCH discussion and help and pondering as to what the problem was...it turned out the dealer had robbed the battery disconnect from our unit and did not replace it..and when it was installed, it was wired up but not attached to the area from where it came !

Yea in compiling the manual it never occurred to me to list the first step in any trouble shooting to be "Make sure all the parts were installed"

ALL is well...if we had not had that incident, we would not have found such a great group of Thor owners to chat and exchange ideas with. So, good things come from bad !

THANK YOU !!!
