What are these electrical connectors for?

In the forward electrical compartment, left front below drivet, there are 2 unused connectors, two unused wires, and a plug for a relay. None of these have ever been hooked up, nor are they in the electrical drawings from Monaco.
Anyone have a definitive answer to what they are for?
Coach is a 2005 Monaco Knight 37PBD.

Attached are pics of the wires/connectors

Does everything work in your RV? Very likely those are unused parts of the wiring harness for your particular model. Often the wiring harnesses are made with all options in mind, but only use the ones called for in your RV's build order. Under my dash and in my electrical bay are unused wires and components. In our case, the wiring harness has the wire's intended use printed on it so I know what it was intended for.

Options that never came on your coach.

As others have said, during the period your coach was built Monaco used harnesses to reduce wiring labor. Some of the harnesses are made with wire insulation of multiple colors, and others with wires of white insulation. For the latter, you may find the circuit "description," and sometimes a number, printed on the white insulation with an inkjet-type "font" every 6 to 12 inches.

When I opened the dash and neatened the harness wiring (spaghetti-city) in our coach, I took advantage of the marking to document wiring in the dash and the Front Distribution Panel, the one shown in your pictures. By bouncing the markings off what wiring diagrams I have I was able to get a decent idea of where signals originated and terminated. In between, well ...

Hopefully this insight can help you find answers to your questions.

I figured they were for options I didn't have. I'll pull them out a bit and look for wire numbers. If I find them, maybe they will match up with something in the electrical drawings. I also noticed on the chassis 12 volt fuse/breaker/relay board in that compartment, there were a lot of items i don't have, example: electric toilet, electric sleeper, etc.

That 'relay' socket is probably for the DRL module (it is not a relay...) Look at the wires and see what the labels are.
