wire question.

Good day.
When i pulled the rotten floor up from our 67 caravel, there was a small metal box thing about 1 or 2 inches long by about 1/2 inch wide or so connected to some of the wires comming from the wiring harness ; this little connector thing was screwed to the bottom, (underside) of the floor in the front of the trailer.
What was that thing? Am i correct in assuming that it was an automatic restet circuit breaker. If so, what amperage did this thing have?
and to which wires was it connected.
I should have written all of this down, but at the time i was thinking of rewiring the whole thing from scratch.
Thank you all who have answered my silly questions so far!!
Eric...

Humm, I'm looking at the owners manual and I don't see what you are referring too in the book.

At first I thought it was the transformer but that's located near the back by the closet. In my diagram, the connections at the front would be for the water pump or the lights.

Let me know if you need more info from my manual or purchase one from Secretarial Services 937-492-8885

PS - Since you are replacing your floor, you may want to protect your new floor w/ Rot Doctor. I just coated my floor w/ it. Works great.

Turning the pages of my manual, How long is your caravel? That makes a difference on the layout.

May I suggest a digital camera...allbeit a bit late I take pictures of everything before I disconnect or disassemble. There was a circuit breaker/fuse for the brakes. But not sure when that started. In the 70's there was a anti sway device that would apply trailer brakes automatically if sway started. I have the wiring diagram for 1975 but have never seen one in person...yet.

I have one of those under our Overlander. It is a 20 amp breaker.
Looks kind of like: [**]

Eric,
Do you still have this so you could post a picture of it?

Well, after about an hour of searching through the garage, i found the mystery piece.
Looks like a circuit breaker of 25 amps.
Would this be for the brakes?
Thanks for the replies!
Eric...
