Wiring

I am wondering what the box to the left is for. There was a plastic cap over it I broke off. There were 2 rubber caps inside they are hanging, can I use these caps instead of the plastic cap. The plastic cap would have to be glued back on.

The disconnect inside the cabin would not work the batteries. Came to find out the battery wasn't charged at the dealers.

When looking for a reset that's when I busted the cap off. There is a small lever switch on the left and a whole that looks like something fits into that the rubber cap would go over.

This is on a XLR 27 Hyperlite.

Thanks Tom

It's kind of a blurry picture, but my guess is that its a fuse. In my opinion, yes, you should put the original cap back on. You don't want salt off your roads getting splashed around those terminals and creating a current path.

The cap does not cover the terminals it only covers where the top yellow lettering is about 1/2 way down the relay where the rubber caps are. The rubber caps were not hooked in the holes they were just loose like they are in the pic.

What is this for ( the relay or fuse )

A better picture.

OK after further review the rubber caps that were loose to begin with and under the cover goes to the battery cables as covers.

What is this relay for. I do not see a buss glass fuse in the holder and none fell out.

Big wire, much current, must go to some significant power device like a winch or an inverter?

Now I can see that it's got a little lever on it labelled "Reset". It's a circuit breaker (eg, resettable fuse). Its not a relay. A relay would have to have a control wire input and I see none.

I don't think the trailer maker put that cover on there just to up his cost. He must have had a reason, so it's best to put it back on.
