Unknown Relays in Battery Compartment

I noticed what looks like two relays in the battery compartment of a 2007 National RV Dolphin. They have HI-AMP Buss 150A, Waterproof CB185-150, printed on them. Does anyone know what they are for?

Sorry, I'm new to the RV scene and will have lots of other questions later.

They are circuit breakers, one for the chassis and the other is for the house batteries.
They are resettable. If you push the Red button and they will disconnect. To reset you must flip a small lever back up found on the bottom side.

I can't get one of those relays to trip using the red button. The small lever seems to be mashed in. I should probably replace it.

Call RV Custom Products at 562-921-8353. They manufacture the 12v
distribution panel. They will advise and send you the schematic. Very helpful
people. In the mean time the attached schematic is for a 2006 Dolphin. I am not so sure there is anything wrong with your breaker, unless your are having electrical problems. By the way I got the schematic from the National RV group on Yahoo. If you do the belong to it, you should join.

There is something wrong with the breaker because as I said, pushing the red button in doesn't trip it. The small lever looks jammed and twisted in, as if it got damaged somehow. Maybe the previous owner banged it when installing a battery. But unless I can free the lever this breaker will never trip if it needed to.

I already have that schematic, it's located on a panel in front of the charger/inverter, in one of the outside storage bins. But thanks!
