I could maybe add the outlet into the basement. it would be very handy to have power in the basement storage.
Thanks... if nothing comes from this I did learn how to post a pic in a thread/reply.
My first thought would be that they are live and the worker just capped them off, maybe they were initially for an additional socket, or power source for extras.

If you know how maybe get a volt meter and check it out.

If it was 110VAC, it would Romex type wiring (2 wires plus a ground in the same jacketing insulation, like the blue wire for the electric element in my water heater in the pic below), not separate wires.

Two wires 12 volt.

They could very well be for an artic pack install.

arctic pack

I have heated holding gray and black tanks. The switch is right by the othEr controls. With the water tank enclosed I wouldn't think it would need heating. I will check other models. And see if theres something else down there.

I'm with "rockfordroo" about the faceplate, someone dropped it at the factory and just grabbed another one to keep the line going. As far as the wires, I've done some electrical work on friends RV's and found the wiring to be something weird from unit to unit. The RV manufacturer's do not follow any electrical code that I have ever studied. Here is my 2 cents worth: The wires in the photo that are capped off were made into a wiring harness which was placed in your unit. This same harness can/could be used on an infinite number of units whether motorhome, 5-er, or pull trailer. I"m also betting that the yellow wire is a 12vDC hot wire and the plain white wire is the 12vDC ground. Using a wire tester for 12 volt circuits will confirm this. The bottom line: Don't worry over them, they are fine.
