Any Ideas?

I pulled this out of a Windstream a few years ago. Have no idea what it is related to. 2wires on back coming from display module out of the switch. No brand name to use to search.

It's definitely either a whatchamacallit or a thingamajig.

It resembles a timer for a coolant heater that I tinkered with a few years ago. It fired up the heater at a set time in the morning and preheat the engine before heading out in the morning. The one I fiddled with was set to start heat 30 minutes before the driver arrived.

Where did it come from?

It was laying in a half parted Windstream LandYatch when I bought the Motorhome for my buddy and the Windstream trailer I got in the deal that I flipped to get the money to buy my 1st. bus. It looked like something I would need, so I through it in with everything else. I hooked a battery to it and the clock does work as well as the alarm. I just didn't know what was associated with the "run" position.

Not positive, but I think both motorhomes were sporting Chevy 454's. One my buddy bought that included the 20' Airstream Vending trailer, was an Airstream Argosy20. I got the trailer as a finders fee after negotiating it into the deal for $750. I flipped it for $3100 and bought a bus. THe rest, as they say.......is a work in progress.

How about taking a sharpie and hide the Run setting and call it an alarm clock?

If it came out of a gas rig I don't think that it would be for a coolant heater. No idea...

Sore subject... I really want an awning. But after installing a 21' awning on my first bus I dread doing it again.

Three men, two ladders and a forklift. It took 16 hours. Most of that was feeding the awning fabric into the channel on the bus. I am reluctant to repeat that experience.

There has to be some method or trick to make the task easier but we were uneducated in awning installation...
