That looks like an owner add on, not done at BB/Wanderlodge shop.

I can identify the "brown cylinders" as 4 ohm resistors, wired as shown to create 12 ohms resistance in that glass fuse protected wire. I don't know where/what the red wire powers...but they wanted to step the 12 volt current down...perhaps for a low volt LED indicator/lamp/display?

One test is to see if they show any heat rise when the circuit is live...resistors get warm in relation to the amount of current they "resist"...if they get real warm...it's not a simple LED lamp or display. If they stay cool...likely a very small voltage circuit.

What amp rating is the glass fuse?

Electricity 101. If one end of a wire is not connected to anything, then anything the other end is connected to is irrelevant.

As with all rules there are exceptions: An antenna comes to mind.

Default Antenna, makes sense

That was my line of thinking, its not wired to any load so why keep it.
The antenna makes sense at one time a there was a power antenna , the remanents of the controller were tucked away back there.
That solves my
curiosity
