Riddle me this ... Can you identify this item



I'm relocating my batter box, Inverter and power transfer switch and found this little guy...

Thanks,
David

That’s a self-resetting fuse. Our 19 has a 50A one for main shore power and a 30A one for solar.

Yes, and we keep a spare in the tool box, just in case.

Wait, that’s wrong, isn’t it? The 50A isn’t for shore power, ‘cause it’s a DC fuse. Is it for the converter? Now I’m confused. The 30A flavor is definitely solar though.

It’s an auto reset circuit breaker. Here is a 30A example:

Well I did not know there are perpendicular and horizontal versions of the same, I thought they were universal. I carry a spare but I do not know now whether it is a P or H model?

When mine blew and I didn't know it the search for a reason why all my lights, etc. were totally dead had me going nuts. Then Dave told me to check this fuse, which I did not know existed. I went and got a new one at AutoZone. It's orientation was different but that was not relevant. Problem solved.
