What is this box?

I have a 2003 Fleetwood expedition DP, there is a small box in the overhead compartment over the driver. It has a small digital screen and a button, if you push the button it shows -- . Can anyone tell me what it is and what it does.
Thanks
Buddy

If you have a sat antenna this sounds like the sat antenna elevation indicator. Open it and see if there is a place for a 9 volt battery inside. If there is I think you can go on Winegard website and download information on your antenna that explains this box.

Yup - specifically it's the monitor for the Winegard Digital Magic box. When it's powered up you start cranking up the satellite dish - it will read the elevation angle of the dish.
