I can only guess that its a DC circuit breaker. I've got a 30 amp one in that position. I suppose it protects the charge circuit in the car from a short in the trailer?

Looking at the schematic I would say it protects the TV battery from being discharged below some set voltage.

When parked and you leave the TV and TT connected the batteries are connected together so you could run down the TV battery and this device prevents that from happening.

That's my guess.

It is probably a diode.

It's a relay, inside the "Control Panel" on late 60's AS. Preset to trip when voltage gets to a certain point to make sure the TV battery has enough juice left to crank the TV. It is connected to the blue charge line and then to the DC bus. Of course unplugging from the TV will solve any issue of TV battery discharge.

If it's a diode, then Radio Shack will probably have a suitable replacement.

If it is a relay, then check with Auto Parts stores.

Any way you can post a picture of the device?
