Hi - While inspecting the wiring before doing a lithium battery upgrade, we recently found what I think is an uncovered, inline, auto-reset breaker loose in the DC bus bar box under our front bed (FC 30FB Bunk).
From studying the wiring diagram in the 2019 manual, I believe this black-white wire is the LP detector positive. Assuming that is correct, I have couple quick questions where I hope the group can help.
1) Given the breaker was loose, is attached to a positive wire, and was laying on the negative bus bar, how great was the risk? I am confused as to why Airstream relied on epoxy to attach this breaker to the back of the box and did not use a screwed down or enclosed breaker/fuse.
2) I can't confirm what is in our box today, but from researching online the smallest auto reset breaker I see of this type is 10 amp. If the black-white wire is for the LP detector, why is this not a 1 amp fuse/breaker?
3) As a follow up to #2. I want to replace the breaker with an enclosed breaker/fuse or a screwed down version of the same type. Assuming that is a 10 amp breaker, should I use the same or should I change to a 1 amp fuse as shown on the wiring diagram and in most post posts I've seen for the LP detector? I can see the auto reset being a safety benefit to ensuring the LP detector is on; but I am not sure if the LP detector would fry before the breaker tripped.
See below for a clear view of the entire box with the breaker RE-POSITIONED away from the negative bus bar.
Thanks in advance to all.
PS - I know it's been said before, but wow the massive nest of extra wire near the box was still a bit of a surprise.
