Electrical box

We bought a 2014 Jayco 32BHDS and are getting ready for our first trip. i was getting ready to replace the e break switch (sucked up the cable into the weed eater) and noticed the electrical box on the front, it looks like a standard metal junction box for a house, is this how they come from the factory, i would think they would use plastic water tight boxes. Also what is the part called for the power wire block that is missing the cover.


and a bonus question, what does this strap go to, hs a loop in one end and a 4" plastic tube on the other, maybe 6ft long

I have seen similar electric boxes on other units, I do not know what it looks like inside. Hopefully the wire junctions are sealed in some manner. As for your bonus question, I believe the pipe part goes in the grove of your awning and wraps up with it. When you want to open the awning, just pull the strap.

I haven't opened it up yet. But screw holding it to the frame is rusted off so I'll be opening it up tonight.

Also we have electric awnings so I guess that it just comes with the trailer

The strap is used "if" you have to roll it up manually.

Makes sense so I'll keep it in the trailer. Thanks

Yes, the electrical box you showed looks just like the one on my 2015. This is how they come from the factory. I have not pulled mine apart, but I would be surprised if they were sealed in any way. One of these days I will remove mine and replace it with a proper box.

Also, the red box in your first picture is a self-resetting breaker. The terminals look pretty badly corroded, I would replace that while you are working under there.

OK I'll order one. What size should it be. I can't find it in any owners books. I think the camper is 30 amp. So would I use a 30 amp block

Hopefully it will be written on the one you have. Usually, the breaker is larger than the current draw your trailer designed for. So a 30amp service would might use a 50amp self resetting breaker. Your local RV dealer should be able to help you out.
