What is this?

I have a 2000 bounder 36s and removed the covering under the table and found this. Would really like to know what it is?

Thanks from Texas!!

Not sure what I am supposed to be looking at,, I saw a wedge shaped carpeted cover often used to cover the utility channel in an RV (where plumbings and electrical/electronic cable run) and and what appears to be a metal set o table legs. That is all, photo too small for detail and I elected not to blow it up.

Without more information, it looks like a 110 v junction box?

Need a close up of the wires and plugs.

I will state unequivocally that those are electrical wires. What they are for I couldn't tell you. Need to trace where they go or come from to figure this out.

It sure doesn't look like the wiring is totally factory connections.... I hope
Looks like someone spliced in with extension cord wiring and wire nuts and taped with electrical tape. I'm thinking the hole through the wall looks a bit rugged for a factory job.

Better cover that up again !!! Seriously, just make sure the connections are secure.

cheers,
Joopy

I think one might want to identify the wires before covering back up.

Hi It looks like an electrical splice and should be redone into a utility box. Splices like that are illegal and if fell apart and shorted could cause a fire.

It is a junction box with 120v wiring. I tapped into the side of the silver box and placed a new 120 outlet (dark box in the picture) to establish another plug location. Yes, this rather crude work is factory and wasn't even covered in my coach. Was hidden behind the couch. Found it when we replaced couch with recliners.Click image for larger version

After being a service mgr. for a Fleetwood dealer for fifteen years, I can tell you, #1 this is factory. #2 the silver box is 120 volt AC. That is why the connection is inside a metal box. The other connections are 12V dc. They are to code. Relax and don't worry about them.

Ok,

Maybe you can tell me where my slide module is located on my 2000 Bounder 36S!
