Cable TV - Satellite TV Jacks

Have a 2014 Flagstaff 5th wheel and have a question that the dealer cannot answer. Between the CABLE TV F-connector and the SATELLITE IN F-connector on the rear/side of the trailer is a small female mini-jack. What is the purpose of this mini-jack? Here are the links to the photos.

Looks like an audio jack. Is there anything on the inside wall outlets that may match it? I tried to Google wall plates but didn't find anything. Is there a manufacturers name or model # on the plate that is visible to do a search with.

There is nothing in the 5th wheel near the entertainment center or elsewhere. Guess I am going to have to remove the outlet and see if anything is connected to the jack, if no one else can give me a hint.

My guess... external antenna earphone jack. Possibly cellphone booster repeater. If your floorplan has a desk area I would look around there for another jack.

Look behind it probably find it in the back of a cabinet and trace the wire. May be nothing.

most likely nothing, I have a satellite radio antenna on my roof but its not hooked to anything and I don't have a sat radio. They put things in anticipating an option to make it easier after things are all together.

I wonder if it's a 12v source for something

I have a 2015 8289WS and on mine is the exact same hole between the satellite and cable jack. Now I am wondering what it is also.

Called my dealer today and asked this question. Waiting on a reply. Going to take the screws out to see if it is connected to anything. Will keep you updated.

I use to have direct tv and I wonder if the cable for the satellite has a little plug on it for power and that is what the jack (or hole) is for?
