What is this and or what does it do

I saw some water leaking from above of my 17 Seneca's wet compartment and saw this. I'm not sure what it is or what it does. I need some help identifying the gadget.
Thanks in advance,

Inlet filter on your water pump.

It can usually be removed by hand, cleaned, and you may want to apply some petroleum jelly to the o-ring and recheck for leaks.

I recommend periodic maintenance and cleaning.

X2 what the others said. I remove mine every fall when I winterize and clean the screen.

Every question is a good one. And yes it is.

Wow, does Jayco pay the guys who put the water system in by the foot and the fittings?

That is one mess o' spaghetti!

Thanks, Guys. I was wondering where that water pump was. Can someone tell me the best way to access it?

As others have answered... yes, the two red wires are actually connected at the bottom - to the pump pressure switch that is attached to the pump. The switch is wired in series with the pump and these switches have a tendency to go out after a while without much warning. I have learned to carry a couple of spares, as they ALWAYS fail when we are out boondocking more than 200 miles away from any RV parts supply locations.
