Premier 2514G Electrical Question

I have a 2015, Premier 2514G. Under the bench seat, near the front of the trailer is where the Electrical Panel is. In this area, under the seat and not really accessible is a wired GFI outlet. Any idea why it's there? The wire running to it is yellow, and all the other electrical outlets are wired with white wire. Nothing mentioned in any of the manuals.

Do you have air conditioning? If not I bet that is what it is for.

Depending on what converter is spec 'd for the trailer it may be hardwired or plugged in.

I can't quite tell but is that a twenty amp outlet?

Also is your water heater gas only and in that same compartment?

Water heater is gas or electric. No A/C on trailer.

Sure looks like a plug for a fridge. Wonder if the tech just installed it thinking your pup was a different model or something. Could just be a mistake.

Might just be to provide protection to the rest of a circuit downstream. Do any other the other plugs quit if you trip the GFI?

I've got a weird GFI like that in my house that's tucked away in a useless location, but it's for the power that runs to the shed. If I loose power in the shed I have to go down to my basement and get into the storage space under my stairs (moving all the Christmas decorations) to reset it.

This GFI has no buttons (like the rest in the trailer) just the one box on the wall by the rear side bed has buttons that shut down all the sockets in the whole trailer.
