I agree on matching the amp rating. Question is what does it control? To me it looks like it might be the relay that protects ciruit for the tow veh charge wire to onboard batt. Did tt have location for battery? on my 69 it is the center wire on the 7 way t/t plug. It is a blue wire that goes from center of plug to positive side of battery so battery can get a charge from tv while driving down road. there is a 25 amp fuse on tv and a 25 amp circuit breaker on tt. To check run a meter from center of plug to both sides of relaay to see if theres continuity, if there is you know what the relay runs. Then you can get a 25 amp relay from NAPA for replacement.

the rating is often stamped into the bracket/housing somewhere. even rusted, you might see it if you sand it lightly, like when you do a pencil tracing.

It's a circuit breaker and it should be sized for the smallest wire attached to it.
It probabably is the charge line; to be sure you should do a little detective work and trace the wire to the other end. It may have been chewed through or left hanging in a compartment somewhere.

after reading all of these responses and thinking about it some more it only makes sense to figure out how to wire this then right and update it properly. i should try and find some updated schematics of how people are rewiring their trailers. mine is gutted and the univolt and previous fuse panel is trashed. i need to find out how the best way would be to rewire and provide updated battery charging equipment.
