Unknown 12 volt supply adapter in over head compartment

WE have a 2014 Itasca Sunstar we purchased used last year and above the passengers seat in the far right overhead storage compartment there is a cord plugged into a 110 duplex outlet that says 12V 18 amps and I can not figure out what it is supplying power to. I have unplugged it and so far everything I can turn on works. The cord seems to run up into the center of the compartment area and possibly heads towards the back of the MH with other wiring. Any ideas what it supplies????

Welcome to iRV2 .

Even with pictures , everyone will be guessing what a pervious owner had installed and abandoned . Just leave it disconnected , the answer may come along eventually .

Welcome! The cord itself says 12V? But it's plugged into a 120VAC outlet? That makes no sense to me. Hopefully someone else will jump in.

Your profile suggests that you have a 27N. According to the Winnebago website (you can download wiring and plumbing diagrams for each model), there is a wire for the overhead loft bed near the location that you're talking about. Do you have a loft bed over the driver's area? I think it was optional for your model.

No loft bed. But that was a option on it.

The cord is a transformer I guess like plugging your phone into 110 to charge.

At this point that's my thought too.

Depending on the model of 2014 you have it could be for the RGB distribution box that should be located just behind the panels in the passenger side overhead bin. It is used to distribute the picture from the Satellite box (drivers side) to the inside TV and Outside TV (35F). that model year was still using RGB cables vice HDMI or CAT5.
As someone else has stated, go to the Winnebago site and download all of your drawings, schematics, piping info, manuals and whatever. They will help you when you try to fix things.

Figured it out today pulled the access door covers off inside the overhead cabinets and started tracing the power cord. Found a big pile of cables and cords it ends up supplying a box labeled video audio controller. I will plug it in when we are set up otherwise will leave it unplugged has a pretty good power drain on batteries.

Are you dry camping? If not then shutoff the invertor you don't need to run it.
