Need to replace this device, what is it?

Please I need your help. Thanks. I need to replace this devise pictured, that holds all these wires. All the wires to it seem to be 12V. On the right, looking at the picture, there is (1) wire red that going straight to the positive side of the battery. (1) wire yellow/black going to the brake away switch, and (1) white wire going to the front tongue jack. On the left there are (3) wires green going to the slideouts with 30 amp fuses on each, and (1) wire red going into the cabin (RV). Again I need a new device that holds the wires. What is it? What is it called. Thanks again. PS.. the devise is mounted on the frame around two feet from the front tongue jack.Click image for larger version

Looks like it's one of these. Check amps to get correct one. Usually 30 or 40. Should be stamped on it.

12v circuit breaker.
Some are manual reset, (little black button in the photo) some are automatic reset.
Come in different amperage ratings.
Some say 24v DC instead of 12v DC. They can be interchanged.
Some have a plastic housing, some have a metal housing. (they work the same regardless)

Kris... a typical terminal block (or buss) isn't a resettable breaker such as the one in the OP. A terminal block is just a place to connect wires together but doesn't provide circuit protection as does a circuit breaker.

And when you buy it. Get spares. They are cheap enough. And mark the wires when you take them off.

Gross Man Gross

Yours is looking gross from neglect. W40 every thread, connection, and under the hold on bracket. Then without taking it a part WD40 about every 6 months.

Get yourself some dielectric grease and smear it all over the connections. Put it on nice and thick and you will never have rust or corrosion. Use on battery terminals also. Auto store or hardware store has it.

If you want to get fancy there are better circuit breakers you could use. I use these in 30 50 60 and 100 amp variations with my lithium battery DC to DC charger solar charger installation.

Disconnect your battery ground cable before you try to take off the connectors, spray the threads with PB Blaster, DeepCreep, or similar products before you try to remove the nuts.
When you put it back coat all the connectors and threads with Burndy a-13 Penetrox or equivalent and that will protect it for years. WD-40 will just dry out and keep you having to re- coat it.

The OP's pics, you can't even tell it's a breaker! Looked like just a terminal block.


edit: zoomed in close on my 15" screen, I can see it better now, on underside of frame. Thought it was mounted to a battery terminal at first.

To reuse/refurbish and preserve part: Clean with WD40 / Brake cleaner / Sand Paper, etc., Reassemble, and then coat with dielectric grease (protects and displaces water).

All automotive parts stores have dielectric grease as well.

Find a way to mount the breaker inside a sealed electrical box and stop driving on salted roads. Regardless you need to ruthlessly clean all those terminals.

The shore only exists in New Jersey... But even near the beach or seaside will do this.

Good chance it is a circuit breaker and you should be able to get a replacement at an automotive parts store such as NAPA where I got one when my old one actually blew apart.

There's a green one underneath the white and they don't look like they are connected to breaker. Brake wires running along frame?

Pictures like the OP's make a great argument for the use of bus bars or at least Terminal Strips. And also installing them in a dry area.
