What do these do?

Greetings Argo20!

The device in the top photo is your coach's furnace. When I enlarged the photo, I was able to identify the lighting instructions. It is a different model than the one that is in my 1978 6.0 Metre Minuet, but the lighting instrtuctions appear to be the same.

The fixture on the ceiling in the bottom photo, I do not recognize. It is too small to be part of a rooftop TV antenna and the radio antenna would have been mounted beside the streetside front Panoramic wing window. It may be an aftermarket item.

Good luck with your investigation!

Kevin

P.S.: I am not absolutely certain, but from looking at the top photo, it looks like your Minuet may have the composite aluminum floors that most of the 6.0 Metre Minuets have.

The bottom one is indeed where the crank was for the antenna.

The plumbing fixture in the first photo is a valve for your waste line. It is used instead of a vent stack thru the roof. It allows for the water to flow easily. It opens to allow air in as water flows out, otherwise stays closed so odor can't get inside trailer. Usually doesn't give you a problem.

I'll take a stab

I believe the plastic grid looking thing on your ceiling is a speaker.

The unit labeled Iota is your battery charger: see more here:
https://www.iotaengineering.com/dls55.htm

The circular metal or plastic thing in your kitchen appears to be a towel holder. It is attached to the plastic "chimney" that directs waste heat from your refrigerator up and out a vent in your roof. Next to the chimney are power outlets, 110 volt standard outlets that likely only work when your trailer is plugged into what we call "shore power" meaning the RV outlet you find at campgrounds so equipped. Above the 110 is, I believe, a 12 volt DC "cigarette lighter" type outlet that is powered from your Battery and/or charger/converter.

Under those is a metal catch for your window blind to hold it closed when you pull the blind down and hook it underneath on both sides. Next is a one of two levers used to open and close your window.

And, the last picture, I believe is a lever to open the exterior exhaust vent for your -over-the-range hood fan, and a switch to turn the fan on and off.

Hope this helps.
