Electronic boxes and switch in fwd external compartment

(Also posted under Electric- but no replies so far) We just purchased a very slightly used 2013 27' FB-EB w/factory installed Solar. In the front, exterior storage compartment, on the left as seen looking in are a couple of electronic/electrical boxes, one of which has an obvious toggle switch sticking up. What are these boxes and what does the switch do?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Jeff. One of those boxes should be your inverter, if your layout is at all like mine. I believe the toggle switch is a means to turn it on/off manually, as opposed to using the remote switch on the galley wall. Joe

It looks like there is writing on the box. Can you read it?

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

I would have to do some serious crawling and twisting to get where I could read it, but will try to get a camera in place. It does look like an inverter based on the size and shape, but I will try to get an image.

Unless it is elsewhere in addition to the inverter (if you have an inverter) might also include the DC plus and minus bars and the transfer relay.

The first black box is the junction box for the 7 pin connector. Behind will be the inverter which has a large fuse on the red positive line with a black cover. The inverter also has a regular 110v plug which is coiled up and not used. Looks like you can just see the light grey phone line that connects the inverter to the remote switch in your galley area. The 12V disconnect switch/relay is here (the one you can hear click when you put your battery in store mode). The are positive and negative bus bars that collect various 12V wires. There are various lengths of spare cable bundled up also . It's a rats nest in there!
