    This is in the garage of our motorhome hiding in the corner. I've had a good look at it today but it doesn't seem to have any markings or numbers on it, at least not on the sides visible. We have an alarm and a reversing camera so is it likely to be something to do with either?

    from the number of inputs could be an alarm or some sort of media device.

    If you have reversing sensors it could be the feeds from them.

    We do have reversing sensors so that could be it (y)

    They look very much like plugs....can you remove one to see what it looks like.

    Could give a better idea what it is by the plug type.

    It would be niche viewing, me mumbling to myself and cleaning my airways...

    That makes sense.

    4 x sensor feeds, 1 x power supply and 1 x dashboard distance indicator

    If I don't get a definite answer I'll take some more detailed photos when I'm at the storage.

    That reminds me, I need to move the beeper as it's buried so deep under one of the sofas I can hardly hear it.

    Definitely looks like a parking sensor control unit, but quite why it is mounted there is a mystery! I would have put it in a hidden location, that looks like it is next to the Hab door!

    I agree, looks very similar to the ones I fitted to our VW t4, you'll have 4 sensors

    It's the Internet.

    Be VERY careful how you handle it.

    Reverse sensors. Ours is in the rear locker out of the way. I fitted a switch to isolate the power when towball cycle carrier is fitted as it blocks the sensors.

    Thanks everyone (y)

    I suppose it's obvious when you look at the four main wires :oops:
