Corrosion Control

I have a 1978 Californian and I SWEAR it has the original corrosion controller made by Yacht Corrosion Controllers Inc.

One of the POs had totally messed up the electronics and I am still slowly figuring out his messes.

Today as I was putting in my rebuilt Perko strainers with new thru hull ball valves I realized there were some wires that I had not noticed before. I followed them back and they go to the controller with a meter and a dial. But they are just lose on the floor under the engines not connected to anything.

I understand basically what the controller and meter are doing, but I am pretty sure that it is supposed to be wired to the bonding strip and to the positive terminal of the battery?? or am I over simplifying what the controller is doing?

The controller right now has 4 wires running to it... I was assuming it would only have two (one to battery and one to bonding strip)...??

I would appreciate some guidance as I start to unravel this mystery....
