I am, but I am also not sure as it could have come out of a butt connector used to hook it to a fuse holder.
Is there any power to the end?

No power to that end of the wire.

I'd suggest looking for your slide motor and see what the power cable looks like coming into it. While it's probably a good guess that it goes to the hot side of the battery, it's only a guess whithout knowing where the other end goes. Is there a empty connectory on the + post of the battery? it appears that the wire was originally crimpted to something.

That was my thought to but there is no end hanging off the battery that would indicate the wire came from it.

Where does the pigtail for the trailer terminate at, a junction box?
Could this wire have pulled out of that box if you have one?

I can't find the other end... it goes into the trailer. Didn't see it going to the fuse panel.

I am wondering if this is the main lead from where your pigtail ends to the trailer to power the 12 volt system when hooked to the TV and to charge the battery off the TV alternator.

Well you could try a continuity test between the end of you red/black wire and the white wire going to the motor. If you have a multimeter that is.
