Default Bilge crawl complete - 2 unknown discoveries, help please.

Spent yesterday crawling/looking into every access hole I could find on our 'new to us' 1999 4100 SCA.

My goal was to get a good feel for the location of all major items in each of the key systems on the boat. I think it was a very worthwhile use of a day (and a few Motrin).

I came away with only two unknowns that I hope more experienced folks can quickly identify. I'm fairly certain one is the battery charger since I didn't identify it while crawling around.

Thanks in advance,

On the first picture where are the wires coming from? It looks like a battery isolator.

The second picture looks like a control panel for the AC.

The cables on the first pic do go to the batteries. I'm afraid I don't follow the term battery isolator? Are we talking something controlled by one of the two battery rotery switches?

Guess I need to keep looking for the battery charger.

I was suppose to go see my new grandson but woke up with a cold so just took the day easy. I did go to the marina and give her a hug.

Google the term, it's a device that prevents the load on one battery from draining the other.
