In the close-up picture and zoomed in a bit you can see it clearer, it certainly looks like an IR receiver / sender.

I just wish the PO would have left some clue as to what type of device it is for...

I agree. Do you have satellite radio?

I was going to guess it is an IR repeater. Often there will be an IR 'eye' on the outside that grabs your remote's IR signal and a device like this will repeat it inside the cabinet. The idea is that if you have a DVD player (for instance) in the cabinet, you can control it without the cabinet doors being open.

I guess you could tape a slab of aluminum foil over the little mystery sensor to see if the hand-held remote still controls anything.

Cover your, and all MH occupants heads with tin foil. You don't want that receiver picking up brainwaves from the people in the RV!

Because of it's location and the exposed wire, I doubt that it's a factory item. May even be a remote receiver / antenna for a Wilson cell phone booster. But, if there was a name on it , that would be too easy.
Has the cast iron Kewpie Doll ,first prize been awarded yet.

Now I've done it, I have to figure out how to spell kewpie

Well if found it and corrected before my poor spelling got noticed .. I hope.

Could it be a TPMS repeater?

Pic is a little blurry but I would say it looks like a Bluetooth mic, sat antenna or a gps antenna. where in the coach is it located ? near the driver? If it's not then I would have to go with ir remote.

No need for clues, the IR sensor takes in the IR signal and converts it to a wired signal, follow that wire and you will find what it controls.

No place for any devices inside cabinets. We already looked to see if there were connections for devices.
