West Marine Combine/Overload module???

The West Marine module in question is located near my batteries. One red wire is connected to my engine battery, the other red wire to my house battery and the black to a ground connection. It has 2 green lights that light one at a time, one light is identified on the module as combined, the other as overload. I have one starting battery and two deep cycle house batteries that are piggy-backed togehter. So really a two battery system. I did disconnect this module today as it is the culprit that has been draining my batteries. With everything shut down, my Link 10 shows that the module was drawing -3.2 amps. Once I disconnected the module my Link 10 read 0.00. What is thiis modules function and can I run my system without it? Is it safe to run my engine without it? Do I need to replace it? I have searched through all of West Marine's catalog and can not find anything that looks like it. I just bought the boat, so I am not sure how old it is.What would I replace this with? Thanks!!

It is most likely a West Marine COMBINER. It is made by Yandina, who has a lifetime warranty. Google Yandina and discuss it with them. The combiner automatically connects the two banks when charging sources are present. The Yandina website has the installation and operation manual.
