87 Itasca Sunflyer Battery compartment

Can anyone tell me what this is? It is inside the battery compartment under the step.



Should I be worried it looks like this? I just bought three new batteries (one 12v for the chassis and two 6v for the house) and I went to hook them up when I saw this. I don't know if I need to replace it because I don't know what it is. I also have a Trik-L-Start to hook up as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

That is for the AUX start it ties the batterys together if the cranking battery is weak, It's time to switch it out and I would clean up the cable ends too, any autoparts store will have them.

Make sure you mark all the wires and clean the ends with sandpaper really good if some look bad replace them out

Autoparts places most likely will not know that it is a 100 amp constant duty 3 terminal solinoid. It is not, I repeat not a starter relay. Starter relay will burn out in short order. Best place to look for it is a RV supply store. They are also reffered to as a dual battery relay or dual battery isolator relay.

I have bought them from NAPA. Should be able to buy them elsewhere with the info Dave provided.
Also pick up a little packet of dielectric grease to put on the terminals so they don't corrode again.
