Mystery box?

New airstream owner. I have a panel in the front under the couch that I don't know what it is. Can someone help me identify this loose panel. I'm kinda shocked that it's not fixed down or anything, just lying freely. thanks

By the way I did buy this 2017 used, so maybe the previous owner detached it from it's original spot.

That thingamabob on the top right looks like the relay switch for the use/store button - on my 2012 27FB that panel is under the bed and it is attached to something not just floating free. Not sure if that's helpful - folks with more depth will chime in I'm sure.

That makes sense. I do hear a click when I engage the use/store button in that exact corner of the couch area. Now all I need to know is the black box also part of that function or is it something entirely different.

I'm guessing you are talking about the woodgrain panel with the two devices mounted on it. There is a screw on the right side; was it not originally screwed in right where it is?

I agree the round object is the relay for the use/store switch. The black box is most likely the junction box where the umbilical to the tow vehicle connects to the trailer wiring.

Yes I solved the mounting problem already myself. I only mentioned it because there were no mounting holes for the screws to gone into. I just drilled two holes a mounted it. Mainly just wanted to know what instruments were on the panel. Thanks for the clarification on the black box.

..and just in front of the black plastic box (which, indeed, connects your 7 pin connector to your exterior lights, brake lights, brakes, etc) is a plastic cover. Under that plastic cover is a humongous fuse. This is an in-line fuse in your 12V positive circuit. One end is connected directly to your battery, the other end goes to your 12V panel. I suspect most people don’t know that fuse is in there, but if you ever had a major short in your 12V circuit that’s a fuse worth checking.

Thanks for all the info. Those are questions I should have asked when I had my walk through since I bought it from a dealer. I'm a big DIY guy if it's worth doing myself and I feel like when stuff goes wrong on a trailer your usaully not near a repair center. Thanks again
