It is to trim the sidecar to compensate for road crown, wind, etc., to make the bike track straight. Should be a handlebar control to adjust that trim. CS can probably send you a wiring diagram.

Don't expect ANY help from California Sidecar - they will disavow ANY knowledge of ever having built sidecars...

You might be able to get some help from dmc sidecars. Maybe not for free but if you need the help they should be able to provide. Sidecar bikes are a lot of fun. :D
