I think it may have been a recluse, but I put activated charcoal on within 5 minutes. So far just a mosquito bite size bump, that's lingered a bit.

I'm in Starke, N Central Florida.

Wonder what this is?

I was looking around tracing wires from side to side and found this little controller tucked up on a ledge above the bay door right behind my entry door. It is screwed in place - how they got in there to do that is beyond me, I tried to get something in to unscrew it and no-way.
So now the mystery - anyone seen this on their old coach? I have a hanging socket with 2 10 amp automotive type fuses feeding the board.

To bring this thread more up to date:
I found that the (original Sears) washer was not draining anymore - needed a new drain pump.

I pulled the washer from the closet and figured I'd take it out to the kitchen area for more room - hmmm, seems the doorways out either to the bedroom or the kitchen are too narrow. REALLY! So they moved these things in while on the assembly line figuring they would never need to be replaced......

Ok, I got a new pump and it was a plug in but no connection for the ground wire. The parts place said "just cut it, not needed". So I replaced it, left the ground wire hanging and I connected the only under cabinet hose to the new pump. I also replaced both cold and hot hose bibs by replacing them with shark-bite models, which required splicing a short piece of pex into each supply line. I tested each under pressure and no leaks.
I moved the washer back into the cabinet and I connected the supply lines to the washer, turned them on - using a mirror I confirmed no leaks at the washer.
I turned on the washer to a small load and it started filling the tub. I was using a flashlight to look all around the 2" clearance I had all around - I didn't see any leaks. The washer didn't stop filling at "small" level - I lifted the lid to see it almost full . It had stopped at small before the new pump install. Maybe I need to ground the unused wire to the frame?

I turned it off and set the control to spin, which drains the washer first. It started draining, so the new pump works, but I shined the flashlight around and saw water on the floor, not the entire tub worth but a 1/2" or so. I pulled the washer out to dry everything out.

My first thoughts were the hose to the drain pump was leaking - the clamps are the 3 pieces of spring steel type that takes special pliers to deal with, which I didn't have - I tried slip joint and water pump pliers to deal with the clamp to no avail, I got the clamp on but am not sure how effective they are now. I need to find the correct pliers - hate to buy them for a one time use but oh well... . I examined the hose and didn't see any splits or anything obvious.

Any suggestions on the ground?
