 What is BX Connector?

On the bottom right of the hood on my BX 1500, there is a sheel metal cutout with an electrical connector showing. The connector has 2 heavy red wires and a plastic cap. It is not used. Can someone tell me what this is normally used for?
Thanks,
JD

Only speculation..... kubota has a 12 volt motorized directional chute on their snowblower. That might be the power source.

For what I have seen I think that is tied to the safety system for shut down. I don't believe it would be a place to be taking power for lites or as Mark suggested rotation of a chute.

I checked the connector again and on the plastic cap it says "30 Amp". I still can't figure what this is.

Your joking, right ????? It is an electrical system fuse. See your manual for more details.

I know a fuse when I see one and this ain't no fuse!

It looks like a power outlet for something. Doesn't anyone out there with a BX have this? Aren't you curious? This is brand new tractor, so it is not something someone added.

To clarify, it is on the bottom right side of the side hood. Toward the rear of the sheetmetal enclosure, near the battery. There is a semi-circular cutout exposing this connector and it is easily seen from standing beside the tractor.

30A? Sounds like a connector for battery charger of aux. lights. Nice feature if you can determine the intended application. Does it switch with the lights?

You keep saying a cutout in the metal. Do you mean the half moon cut out for oil filter access ??? The battery is on the operator side of the firewall. In my manual on page 55 is a picture of what I think you are describing. It is listed as a 30 amp slow blow fuse and it looks like a cap on the wires. I fastened it out of my way when I changed oil so I will have to remove the cowl to see it. I will check the service manual when I get back out in the shop
