What is this: near battery bay?

I am coming up quickly on owning the RV for a year. It needs work, it was a project I knew it, but after owning it for all this time I have gotten quite familiar with most of it's systems. But whenever I open the battery bay I see this and wonder what it is:

I'm not familiar with the Skydeck, but I'm guessing the bottom photo is an oil filter for either your hydraulics or generator if you have one. What's in the plastic?

The plastic is attached to the unit itself. I would need to uninstall it to get it out of the plastic. I was hoping someone with a Sky Deck or even the RV it's based on, the 390 or 395 or even 396 owners might know what's in the photos.

It could be that the bottom photo is a filter, I didn't get a chassis manual with the RV and I don't remember any notes on maintaining a hydraulic filter in the RV owner's manual.

The bottom filter picture, if it's in front of the battery compartment, looks like my fuel filter/water separator. If it has a valve to open on the bottom, that's what it is.

In case you didn't know, there are two fuel filters for the engine, the one I mentioned, and the final filter which is mounted on the curb side of the engine.

Sadly no, thanks for the link. Before I got the RV I was reading those from cover to cover. I was very excited.

I was at the RV today, taking more of the Bus Wrap off, this time on the front of the slide which was in. I did get a lot of it off, but I also accidentally triggered the turn signal trying to fit between the driver's seat and the wall. When I was packing up I was near the battery compartment and heard the ticking of the relay that controls the turn signal. It was that plastic covered item with all the protected wires going to it. The one above the filter in the last pic above.

Very excited to have that one sussed too.
