Default What is this?

Found this laying loose behind the counter under the sink. Any thoughts?

Maybe a home made thermostat control for heat cables on the water lines?

That would be my guess something to run a anti freeze heater of sorts.

Thanks, Gang. Electrical stuff is not my strong-point. You should hear the direction I was going!

Looks like a relay with a timer. I'd plug something into it and see what it does.

Looks like a very hazardous temperature controlled contactor for a 120 volt electrical device.

And we wonder why some coaches burn down.......

I would toss it in the trash and not look back.

Default Concensus

By majority opinion we have perhaps determined what it used to be. Shortly it will become just another legacy of used parts for the bin. Thank-you for all your help, Glenn.

Yup, Thermostat controlled contactor. This is not a good design, contactor should be in a metal box at least and unprotected wires should not be exposed. Don't use it, but save the parts You never know when you might need a good contactor

What, for instance, would I need a good contactor for? Remember, little practical electrical knowledge so small, easily understandable word only.
