Keep em apart!
Whatever you do, DO NOT put the wires together. Unless you like to live dangerously that is.
Worst case - Fire and Explosion! Possibly fireworks ( if your unit is like mine!)
Best case - Cold and possibly scaley hands while you wait.
I think that the lotion is going to have to wait and the greater good will benefit by not losing a unit, no fire response needed. But you DO loose out on the fireworks.
OK, all kidding aside. Tape em off until you can get a manual and follow the electrical diagram. They are mostly likely something that is innocuous but you never know, and certainly don't want to find out the hard way, referernced above.
