Default 6TCA in RV help?

Can someone help this guy with a Cummins 6TCA on the RV boards, who has a question about a solenoid on top the engine? Link below includes pictures.

It is a fuel solenoid for what we call in the turbine engine world a torch igniter. In this case they are only heating the fuel and injecting it into the intake to aid in cold start combustion.
