Well now that was solved maybe try one more. This is the last mystery switch on my rig and will probably have to run down the line to see where it goes.

But thought I'd check with group to see if anybody else is familiar with this and knows what it is for. Not sure if its from the manufacturer or an add on. It is in my wet bay near the electric water pump. It looks like it is currently disconnected but if it is useful I should probably get it figured out one way or the other
What does it say on the little electric thing bolted on the wall right under it. I see a 12v inline fuse holder near it ?

I agree, add on switch for a Hot Rod. Electric water element.

Simple, that makes your rig a time machine. Its the flux capacitor.

It may well be the flux capacitor instigation switch. Probably should not bring it up again. It saved us from the end of the world when the Mayan calendar ran out.

I wondered if it might be a flux capacitor but am having trouble getting it up to 88mph so I couldn't tell if it was working. LOL

I think it is 12V and the fuse is missing out of the holder and one of the wires is disconnected. There is some writing in felt near there but it faintly says "float". I was hoping it was maybe something to charge the chassis battery as that is currently not happening.

The brown box with label is separate and I think is hooked to the water pump. But maybe I'll take a closer look tomorrow and maybe crawl under and chase the wires this weekend. Supposed to getting beautiful weather here this weekend

Thanks for all the replies so far

The gizmos on the bumper...
We had team banners that flew on poles. We trolled the driveins with my old ford.
So, flag pole holders?

The switch....
I had red beehive lights in the fender wells and under the dash of that same ford. A 55 Ford Custom, BTW. Had a glow that made older folks wonders about me, but my girl friends liked them!
So, check the wheel wells?

That is a macerator pump the PO probably had installed or a portable one that he removed when he got rid of the MH.

Thanks for all the replies. I guess that's what it was for.

Had a chance to pull it apart today and it is not hooked up to anything currently. Found 12V power is alive before the switch so I guess I'll have the opportunity to hook up something else there. I did chase the wire to the front of the rig but lost it in the maze there. I am wondering if it is Hooked to the chassis or house batteries. My chassis battery does not seem to be charging off shore power so I was thinking of hooking up a charger there.

Oh well. Probably wait for nicer weather to tear into the battery situation. I did pull them and add water and cleaned terminals when I got it last year but will probably want get them tested and maybe clean all the grounding points and maybe add new battery clamps ( maybe some with a cut off switch ). Also want to rig up some way to get the grill out. Seems to be riveted into the plastic from behind. It is extreme PIA to access them from the fold down hood where as if the grill was out they would be perfectly exposed. Who was in charge of this design plan????

Another project to add to inexhaustible
list.

Guess I must love the lifestyle!
