what could these be for?

I took off the panel in my basement for the first time. Found an unused faceplate and 2 electrical end wires with plugs.
These are located by the freshwater tank and pump. Every thing works, I was just doing some spring cleaning. And how would I find out what the wires could be used for.
Thanks for any suggestions.

That faceplate looks like it goes to a gfci outlet.

It will fit most RV outlets, not just GFCI's. Either you've got an outlet without a faceplate, OR they dropped the faceplate and didn't bother to go retrieve it.

wires

and hanging just to the upper right corner of the face plate are 2 wires, yellow and white with plugs at the end. Can't tell where they come from because they wind out of the large pile of spaghetti wires. wondering if they could be used to add an outlet that should have been there but they didn't put it in... since the face plate is there... 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.

The white and yellow wire should be low voltage (12v). You can take a meter or test light to see if it's live. The barrel ends on the wire look as though you can either get a male connector and insert it or it could be a crimp connection.

I guess it could be for a function not on your unit or just for possible end user use.
