Identify two large bundles of wire on top of waterheater

I don't have a picture but... I'm not sure how much it would help. In a 2003 American Dream I found two large bundles of low voltage wire in black flex conduit, each with a few connectors but no labels. They're under the bathroom sink and coiled on top of the water heater. I assume these are for factory equipment that was removed but... the length seems odd. I didn't uncoil them but it seems like each one must be 4'-6' and there just isn't very far to go under the sink.

Seems like someone might be familiar with these if they are factory.

Are one or two of the ends connected to anything?
It’s possible they were accidentally left behind during construction.

If you are the 2nd, 3rd or more owner of the coach, it is no telling what previous owners have made for modifications or repairs. You will have to trace the wires to a source or destination.

AC builds all coaches wired for all accessories. I don't have and don't want either a dish washer or an outside TV, but the wiring is there for both. These wires could be wiring for an item you don't have, but the wiring is there just in case. However, normally AC's stuff is labeled.

That's what I was thinking. Far as I can tell they go into the wall. And yeah, if it's factory I would think everyone would with a ~2003 AC would have two harnesses coming down above the water heater.

Seems likely it's aftermarket. The world may never know.

As a service manager for 15 years, I have seen it all. It sounds like factory wiring. Wire bundles are made up for all production motorhomes. It sounds like they ran out of the correct bundle for your couch and used a bundle for one that was longer than your coach. To save time they didnít shorten the bundle just wound it up.
If the bundle goes into the wall, you can be sure that is what happened. If it is out in the open, it was probably a previous owner.
