Anybody know what this electric box is for ???

I have a small electric box on the forward wall of my '85 Excella nest to the curbside battery box. I have no idea what it is for. I'm hoping that someone can help. This is my first post of photo's so hopefully I can follow directions. We'll see bout that.

Thanks all

It's the doorbell. See http://www.airforums.com/forums/f311...ery-76787.html.

In Mike's motorhome it was in a different place, but yours is exactly where mine is in my Excella.

Thanks. Was wondering where it was. I had the side panel off and didn't see any wires from the outside handle though. All put back together now so can't look farther.

Thanks for the info.

Hi Roger,

On mine, the doorbell didn't work at first, but the button was just kind of stuck from lack of use. After poking on it several times, it freed up and works great now.

There is a holder in the box for batteries, are they required for it to work ??? Still I think I need wires from the button wouldn't I ??? Anyhow, I don't plan to pull it all apart to look farther. But thanks for telling me what it is. Nice to know. I'll leave it where it is. Maybe I'll have it open again and follow it up.

You don't need batteries, it is wired into the 12v system. That's what two of the wires are. The other two are (or were) from the button. Check that fuse, don't just look at it, check it with meter or test light. Also, clean off that green corroded connection.

Maybe you'll get lucky and you just don't remember the wires behind the handle.
