2016 27DSRL unconnected electrical connector

Hi, I'm new to RVing and trying to figure things out as they occur to me.

There is an unconnected electrical connector near the front junction box on my new tt. The wires to the connector(small black plastic connector) go into the tt directly under the front lip of the body of the tt. What's the connector for? Thanks for your best guess.

John

Maybe you could include a picture for better understanding of the problem. I would start by checking that all 12 volt equipment is working. Check all outside, inside and storage compartment lights are operational. I have a 2015 27DSRL with 6K miles and still loving it.

Probably for a power jack.

The power jack and all lights on the front of the trailer work on the battery, and the interior light in the storage compartment works on the battery. Nothing in the trailer on 12v has been noted as not working when on battery only.

In taking a closer look at the wiring, it does not appear to enter the trailer at the location of the wire, but rather runs off to the right(from the perspective of facing the trailer front) under a covering(so that the wire can no longer be seen). Also, I got no indication of voltage by testing with a multimeter - but the contacts in the connector are so small I can't be sure I made proper contact.

The wire in question is the one at the top of the picture.

I really have no idea but could be in case you wanted to add electric stabilizers.

You can sometimes use paperclips as an extension to DVM leads for making a connection.

I will look tonight and see if my 2015 27DSRL has that same connection. I have the electric stabilizers.
